James Liu: "I'll sell you a mast for $2700. ;-)"
Andrew R: "Mike, you're a cruel, cruel man. Any comments on the bokeh from the hack who coined the term?"
Mike replies: I didn't actually coin the term; and, looks good so far.
Daniel R. Fealko: "I've only got one word to say to all of this: 'Dang, those are some really nice images!' Okay, maybe more than one word, but I'm impressed. Now off I go to dab the drool from my chin."
Mike Plews: "$2700? For that you get a D600, 35mm ƒ/2, 50mm ƒ/1.8, and a steak dinner in change. Did I miss a memo? Nevertheless the pix are very nice."
Mike replies: The memo said, "You're not supposed to be so sensible about this stuff!"
wchen: "GAS, yes GAS. It costs a lot more cash to fill a tank these days. But it is not a bad thing to have something to feed our eyes; quite an entertainment at least."
Ed: "Eh Mike...I just saw the widow of Steve McQueen on German TV...and guess what she was using...a Nikon F...with a softbutton release...now that is my definition of subzero cool. And her lens was a Nikon series E 36–72mm...does anyone remember that? Remember Mike, in photography it is not that important what is behind the lens, important is what's in front of it :-)."
Phillip England: "I don't need to spend $2700 to see a bar drinks shelf blurred like that!"
