dcervenka 02-19-2010 10:36 AM

Myke, In your excitement about the bikini shoot, b-game, retinas.. you forgot two more zeros and then some. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

cali_rider 02-19-2010 10:36 AM

Dave, i just shot with this thing for our Model shoot and it was very, very nice. <BR> <BR>How much are you asking? BRO!

dcervenka 02-19-2010 11:07 AM

For the record.. did you score any phone #'s because of the lens...? don't lie! <BR> <BR> <BR>I'm asking $2500, but open to wheel and deal. Hey I've been watching Pawn Stars, but I'm no ChumLee! Talk to me...

1boarder_kevin 02-19-2010 6:20 PM

$2500?? <BR> <BR>It is only $1799 at BH now or am I missing something.

dcervenka 02-19-2010 8:01 PM

"open to wheel and deal" <BR> <BR>How about a $150 rebate off B&amp;H's price?

richd 02-20-2010 8:30 AM

Dave will personally autograph the lens case for you, that's got to be worth something!

dcervenka 02-20-2010 10:33 AM

LOL... good one Rich, but that alone will raise the price another $1.00. <BR> <BR>How about this.. I will personally autograph a Global WarNing DVD &amp; Poster with each purchase.

steezyshots 02-23-2010 1:55 PM

$2500 is someone late on their mortgage?

steezyshots 02-23-2010 1:56 PM

If you sell this for $2500 I have a bunch of stuff I will give you to sell to unsuspecting chumps

breakz77 02-23-2010 2:20 PM

wakedad33 02-23-2010 6:13 PM

Dave, trades? 70-200 f4 and cash?

dcervenka 02-23-2010 11:21 PM

RB - lol.. nah, just checking if people actually read my silly post. Like I said I'm "open to wheel and deal".. <BR> <BR>Myke -You're making some very tempting offers, what about an all expense paid trip to lovely Shastina Lake with Eric Estrada..? <BR> <BR>Randy - Thanks, but I'm trying to unload Canon to buy Nikon. In one door.. out the other. Now if you have a Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VRII or a 300 f2.8 then I'm down. ;-)

richd 02-24-2010 9:11 AM

Dave I hope you're not switching to Nikon for the video!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/776594.gif" alt="Upload">

02-24-2010 7:23 PM

I'm curious to hear Dave's response as to why he's switching from Canon to Nikon. I've been torn between the Nikon D300s and Canon 7D. Just curious what he liked/disliked about one over the other.

rorowake 02-24-2010 9:32 PM

Dave- I thought you went Nikon months ago??? I'm confused!

breakz77 02-24-2010 9:34 PM

Dave I'm very excited about you having a counter offer.... <BR> <BR>Unfortunately at this time Eric Estrada is booked for the next five and a half years.... If you would be willing to compromise for Randy Jackson we might be able to make a deal. Please let me know what your thoughts are.. Thank you for your time!

dcervenka 02-25-2010 1:17 AM

Ronnie - "trying to unload Canon {glass} to buy Nikon {glass}. ;-) <BR> <BR>Rich - nope. I have a panasonic for that. ;-) <BR> <BR>JP - I went with the D700 primarily for the full-frame and super clean high iso capabilities. For me the switch was never about video since I already own a HVX200 and it's splurifferic for making sexy time videos! From what I've read/heard the 7D is probably your best choice (right now) if you want to shoot videos with your DSLR. Just take a look at what <a href="http://www.vincentlaforet.com/" target="_blank">http://www.vincentlaforet.com/</a> has been doing with the video capabilities of the canons. Scott A also posted a video on this forum where they were using canons to shoot scenes for 24. <BR> <BR>As for Nikon.. <a href="http://www.dpreview.com/news/1002/10022304nikonbalance.asp" target="_blank">http://www.dpreview.com/news/1002/10022304nikonbalance.asp</a> <BR> <BR><i>"At present, according to Sasagki, Nikon regards video as a function that is of more use to users of lower-end cameras, but ultimately will be a standard function across Nikons entire DSLR range."</i> <BR> <BR>Myke - You're getting me so excited. How about Urkel, is he available? You're about the loose this deal.. work it!

scott_a 02-25-2010 1:34 AM

dpc- why not switch to a 5d2? Is the D700 that much better at high ISO?

notsobueno 02-25-2010 6:24 AM

scott a: I'm Not familiar with the Canon high ISO quality, but can assure you that the D700 and/or D3 high ISO quality is stunning.

02-25-2010 8:59 AM

Kung Fu Dave-thanks for the response and links. I still am not sure how important video feature is for my use. Nice to have...but is it mandatory to have on dslr? Better to go with dedicated camcorder? Still deciding and researching. <BR>Sorry for the hijack Dave. Good luck with the lens sale.

steezyshots 02-26-2010 9:52 AM

1D Mark lV saving my pennies!

dcervenka 03-08-2010 5:26 AM

So I have this guy from Nigeria that just received a HUGE inheritance and he's really interested in the lens.. But I want to see if anyone here is interested first.

wakedad33 03-08-2010 5:07 PM

Dave, a bird in the hand is worth...... Sell it. I would like to have it but I'm saving my pennys for a 7D.

dcervenka 03-09-2010 12:48 AM

Randy - Not sure if I understand..? isn't that like having a Ferrari without a steering wheel! Don't fight the L-series.. it's calling your name.

Imagine 18 pt bucks and bald eagles with HUGE talons in your sights! ;)

breakz77 03-09-2010 6:05 PM

Alright Dave I'm going to just have to come pick it up and see if I like it first.. After a few shoots if I like it I'll start the payment plan with you;)

Hey Dave,
If the deal with the Nigerian guy falls through, will you consider a trade for this? I'll even throw in a year's supply of Folger's coffee...whatta ya say?


dcervenka 03-18-2010 11:24 PM

JP - You got it! I will take about 60 of those for a trade and then I will drink red bull from each one.

Anyone interested in taking their "C" to an "A" game?


I also have a Kodak disposable that I will gladly trade for a Canon 7D.. hit me up on PM if you're interested.

dcervenka 03-22-2010 4:26 PM

This thread has been "blowing up" with almost 500 views.. wow!

Thanks for all the interest, but I'm sorry to say that the lens has been sold to a boat merchant from Somali.. I'm now waiting to take delivery of a french tanker with about 40,000 tons of oil. Pretty fair trade if you ask me. However, I'm still not sure what I will do with it... I wonder how the wake is?
