  1. @Timos I am very happy with it mate. I wish I'd set the volume limit from the start but, since doing that, no hiccups and it's working very well and sounds great. Al
  2. Quite a leap... love my HE1000s... but not for small car pricing. Look forward to hearing some. If they're 1.5x as good as the 1000s I'm in!
  3. Which sound best - must be closed back. Thanks in advance!

  8. Peter - the PS3 worked with some sticks but not others... I think the answer is to have a few around, I ended up using 32GB Sandisk sticks.
  9. Here's a beastie spotted on the neighbours' fence this morning. I think it's Phasmatidae Species, but I'm no expert on insects. It's about 30cm long.
  10. @palexsia G'day mate Have liked my M cameras for a while. Favourite is the Monochrom, but the M-P 240 is close behind it. But it is the SL that means the Nikon gear is gathering dust. The more I use the SL the more I like it and, as you know, once you have a decent range of Leica glass you don't want to use anything else!

  12. Item: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G Location: Sydney Price: $1900 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Changing system Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am going to make a big call here - I think this is the best lens Nikon has ever made. People who care about MTF charts and shooting brick walls will never get it (and prefer the much cheaper 50 f/1.4 or f/1.8 anyway), but this lens renders light (and people) absolutely gorgeously. Like all modern lenses, this lens is sharp, however what makes it so lovely is the unique rendering it provides. It is the closest thing I've ever had to Leica glass on my Nikon and it blows away everything - including Zeiss - in terms of the beauty of the photos it makes. I expect that's a combination of being very sharp at the point of focus, but with contrast/sharpness dropping off quickly with depth of field, and its ability to render point source lights with almost no aberrations. If you're contemplating this lens, the review here is worth a look: http://www.thepassionatephotographer.com/the-nikkor-58mm-f1-4g-lens-me-a-review/ Pictures:
  13. Item: Nikon AF-S VR Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 Location: Sydney Price: $1000 Item Condition: Fair - this lens has been owned by me since new and worked hard. Occasionally, the auto-focus doesn't kick in. A quick nudge of the focus ring gets it going. It has been like this for perhaps 2 years and I have shot tens of thousands of soccer photos with it functioning this way and never missed a shot, so haven't bothered repairing it. However, I would prefer the purchaser to come and check it out before committing. It is optically perfect and the price reflects the condition.
