When I was younger, I bought consumer grade and third party zooms.


Today I have 8 lenses. Only 1 is a zoom. Only 2 autofocus. I have never been happier with my glass

When you grow older, you will start collecting glass - for your own eyes... and will begin to have more and more trouble focusing your MF lenses on your camera... so and at the end you will still have 8 lenses - but all AF. ; -)

So sad and so true.

Hit 40 and my vision which was always poor for far things but great close-up, took a major dive!

5 years later I have multiple pairs of glasses and to watch me try to edit slides using my old favorite loupes and swapping glasses like a drunken madman elicits lots of giggles from my wife.

Thank God for AF and huge freakin' monitors for the aging poorly crowd...
