My latest purchase, and perhaps the most expensive book I've ever bought.

A 450 photos in 300 pages photo book of 330x413 mm (13 x 16.3 in) and weighing 5.23kg (or 5.9 kid with white package).

Hurricane Harvey put some flood water inside our house. Unfortunately, my wife’s several SLR cameras, film and digital, were stored near the floor. I bought her a Nikon D500, to replace her drowned pair of D7000 cameras. Fortunately, her Nikkor 80-400G was stored in a high place, and survived.

Most of my photo gear stayed dry enough, but not all of it. I immediately purchased a replacement Canon Macro Ring Lite, upgrading to the II version, and then a replacement Micro-Nikkor AF-S 60/2.8G.

Unrelated to the flood, I added a Metz 64 AF flashgun. Initial impressions are very good.

I added the Leica M system in April 2018. A particularly well-preserved Summilux-M 50mm ASPH was available at Houston Camera Exchange, a Leica dealer in Texas. I tried it on several pre-owned Leica cameras, and decided to buy the lens. I then crunched some numbers, and decided that I could buy a new Leica M10 camera, upon which to use the lens, if I scuttled plans to add a significant Nikkor super-tele lens for our bird photography. I was recovering from a left shoulder injury, anyway, so it would be quite a while before I would be using a big tele lens hand-held.

So, with that background, I just took delivery of a pre-owned Special Edition 50-Jahre 50mm Summicron-M, bought through evil-bay from Calagaz Photo, completing a trio of 50mm Leica 50mm M lenses; Summilux ASPH, Elmar-M, and Summicron. This 50-Jahre Summicron commemorates the 50-year anniversary of the first 50mm Summicron, and has the optical formula of what Leica shooters would consider the IV, or fourth-generation 50mm ‘Cron, but with the external appearance reminiscent of the “Rigid” ‘Crons, a much more elegant lens, in my opinion.

I have yet to add that super-tele Nikon-mount lens. My shoulder is healed, but the rest of me is not getting any younger, and the same is true of my wife. We have decided that slower, more-modest tele lenses, plus Tele-Coverters, weighing less than tele lenses such as 500mm f/4 and 600mm f/4, suffice for our nature, wildlife, and bird photography. It helps that we have “his and hers” D850 cameras, so can better magnify/crop, than when we were using 12MP and 16MP DSLRs, not so long ago.

I am still doing my part to keep this forum alive. :) Am I the only one? :(
