    That someone buy my Mamiya rig so I can finish picking up that Hartblei Super Rotator for Nikon. Oh and a D700. I have hopes for the first, but not the second.

    Re: Even more fun what do you want as a gift

    An elf to keep everything organized and to know what stuff I will want to use in Calif when I'm here and then magically have the right stuff in NY when I'm there.

    Barring that...the ability to snap my fingers or twitch my nose like on Bewitched and have what I need appear when I want it.

    I'm missing my M8 and it is in the wrong place, John Milich is ready with adapters and the lenses are in the wrong place. My portable hard drives in the wrong place.....get the idea.

    Leica to finally get around to contacting me to send in my M8 for an upgrade. Oh, and a D700 (my D3 is just too big!).

    What I'd like is world peace and a healthy economy. Since that's not likely to happen, I'll settle for good health and happiness for my family and friends.

    Time. So I can manage two fulltime jobs in parallel, and find some time to shoot.
    But I'll settle for a clone hehe.

    Leave it to Jack to really put things in perspective, not like the rest of us selfish bastiges. Health and Happiness for those you know and love is always the greatest gift (I still want the D700 though).

    If happiness contributes to health and happiness is having what you want - I can't see the difference between health and happiness and a D700....

    Re: Even more fun what do you want as a gift

    Jack's gift wish doesn't fit under a Christmas tree - it's too grand. Let's keep it selfish

    D700 (which Santa probably will deliver mid-January together with a Sigma 50/1.4), a Core i7-based desktop system for development and testing.

    And finally the not-in-your-lifetime-dream-about-it-sucker wish: RED's wet dream 6x17 cm 260-gazillion-pixel panoramic body. I'm not that picky, one lens is enough thank you.

    Helen,

    As long as you have the place, you should be able to put together a darkroom in this day and age for about what it would cost you for a couple of Leica UV/IR filters. I sold a top of the line Fujimoto 4X5 VC enlarger a couple years back for $600 (paid almost $3K new). Doubt I'd get 300-400 for it now. Lesser but equally good enlargers go for a lot less. Best to check out Craig's list, esp for deals on trays etc. Have fun! I had to give it up for health reasons. I highly recommend wearing a respirator!

    Oh, and I'll take a new NEC 2690 monitor as well!

    Had it, sent it back. Get an Eizo, you'll be happier. NEC is all about a proprietary color management scheme. With Eizo you can Eizo's s/w or anyone else for cm.

    ETA: Chromix has a $474 instant rebate and free shipping on the CG241W thru Dec21st, actual cost $2k.

    Oh, what I want to find under the Christmas tree; a great big box of fresh Efke R100 roll film, and I want the obsolete size 127 rolls. That stuff with a metol/pyro staining developer and Amidol prints...

    And if there was ever a chance to get my hands on some old ORWO fb b&w print paper ... Sabbatier with that paper produced limited colors (brown, black, gold, a hint of green and blue) when developed in Dektol!
