About me:

Various film bodies beginning in the 60's, including medium format, later a Minolta SRT 201; some misc. digital P&S cameras and eventually moved to Canon 10D; now shoot with a 1DMkIII, I replaced a S45 with a S100 for travel & casual shooting.

I use an iPhone X for more casual, quick stuff, I expect to add a mirrorless body to replace the 1DIII at some point.

Lenses are a key part of photography gear, what I currently shoot with:

EF 20mm f/2.8
EF 24mm f/1.4L
EF 17-40mm f/4.0L
EF 50mm f/1.4

    Odd that it only occurs on DPR, at least for you and me it seems, and on both of my laptops. As I rarely logout and mostly use Chrome I'm going to just ignore it for now. Cheers, Doug
