Ricoh GXR / Pentax-L 43mm f1.9 "special"
I did not expect to see a duck in Clerkenwell during a usual day in the office. Seems like ducks are following me everywhere recently. Took this on my way back from lunch at the Barbican after a quick stopover at Red-Dot camera.

Today we tempted to go for a long walk from Greenwich, accross the foot tunnel and towards Wapping and have a drink at the power station. Well, we got as far as Island gardens and it started to rain so heavily so we sort of gave up. Over lunch I had possibly the biggest burger ever served to me at a pub that looked rather like a deserted church.

Ok finally sold both my Zeiss lenses. Had it not been for eBay and Paypal's abusive fee's I would have broke even. Hard to believe that for each 600 pound lens, I have to pay out around 40 quid eBay, and 20 quid paypal. In the future I'll do all my lens trading on RFF... Anyway, I rather have the Ricoh GR 28mm f2.8 over the Biogon equivalent any day. The build quality of the Ricoh lens is outstanding and something I've not seem on any other lens.
Have to mention that matsuiyastore store in Japan is fantastic. Lens was purchased Saturday at 18:00 and it was received in my office today at 12:00. Second lens I buy from them, the first was the Konica M-Hexanon 28mm f2.8 which I like very much. Each purchase is pure pleasure.
This is now my second copy of the GR lens after the first got stolen from me a year ago.
Ok anyway, I really need to start posting more... and no more lens purchases at all now.
