Before I make a final choice, I will ask in this thread first if anyone has gear to trade/is interested in either of those things. This is not an official "For Sale" post.
buy a better mobo? nvm lol, graveyard shift.

I got a free (for doing a build) Crosshair IV. I had the III -- you missed where I said my last mobo was the source of the CF issues.

Since I've gotten the 6970, though, I don't know that I really need to go back to all that glorious CF power at 1920x1080. The pros and cons for either setup are pretty neck-and-neck, but the 6970 is technically worth more in raw return than the pair of 5850s (which is actually a better setup in almost every regard).

Dunno. I don't really need anything, but if someone here is looking to upgrade and simultaneously unload some gear, we can be happy ending lovers forever.

I'd sell off the 6970. It'll be hard to find a buyer for two of those together, and shipping each card individually will cut into your profit margin.

Although truthfully I think even one 5850 would cut it, and you'd have even more money to invest in lenses

Shipping costs me virtually nothing, UPS preferred accounts are great. My biggest issue is that I no longer use PayPal, and nobody ever wants to do cert check/money order. I gave up on that after putting my 5850s for sale in December.

Like I said, I don't need anything, but if there's something I can use more than a couple of 350-dollar video cards sitting in boxes on a shelf, and someone happens to be looking for said cards (or even the 6970).... I'm open to offers/discussion.

No Google Checkout? Well, I suppose you can always try trading. There's some camera gear floating around Anand, and I ran into an [H] guy on POTN the other day (bought my 85mm on POTN).

Although on POTN I'd imagine that unless your heatsinks are 100% aluminium and have an Apple on the heatsink, they might not be popular...

I appear to have found a lens that will meter on my d5000. An older nikon 24-70(d).

It's still MF but I can deal with that. Found it on an N90 downstairs.

10-20 still isn't here, and i ordered it on Monday.

If it's AF or AF-D, it'll meter... It's only AI and AI-S lenses that won't meter.

You mean the 28-70mm?

Scanned some film, Kodak Pro 100 graymarket asian stuff that I bought from Thailand on ebay. By far the coolest color film I've shot with, really digging the saturation and color tone. Shot with my 35SPn.





The lab molest my last 3 rolls again... rolled it up instead of cutting like I specifically asked, and manipulated it without gloves, finger crud and scratches all over the place.

Since I've got my D7000 now, I think I'll just shoot B&W with my film gear and dev my own film and get rid of the problem. Thoughts or suggestions about self-dev'ing from home? Gear, chemical recommendations? I'd really like to get some bulk tri-x and do some experiments with insane pushing and print manipulation.

I did mean the 28-70. Well spotted. They never made a 24-70d.
