    I also have an older Tamron 28-105 f/2.8 35mm lens for Nikons, handed down from my dad, that I use on Nikon DSLR's. The smaller CMOS sensor makes the effective focal length 42-158, but man it sure is nice to have f/2.8 available at full zoom. That was a $1K lens back in the 90's.

    Good to know for future decisions. I just got a 24-105 (had to lose the 17-55 f/2.8 b/c of my new/old 1D3). I'm amazed at how sharp it is as well. Good to find a good copy of a good lens.

    Actually WhyFi's TSE-90 would be a good choice, as it can have a miniaturizing effect on some parts, making the other parts appear larger. Maybe he should be the one out shopping for eye bleach before the shoot. Maybe we can use a filter adapter to mount the Tampon 28-75 backwards on there too...

    wait, wtf is this thread about?

    I use an antique kodak to take my pictures. Sucks that I ran out of magnesium powder and haven't been able to take any recent ones.

    Try grinding up an unused tamron and see if that works.

    IMO I have to say I Love the bike, the only changes I would make is get rid of the Red on the Wheel set, Use an all black seat and change the chain to black.

    Only thing I would change at that Fuji is bar tape. I'd use black one.

    So for those who aren't following my "testing new wheels" thread, I just picked up my second demo wheelset today. When i walked into her shop I saw a set of wheels leaning against her work bench and prayed they were not mine to pick up. Sure as crap, they were. I was actually kind of irritated about them being pink. Got them home and put them on my bike. I was surprised that they didn't look AS BAD as I was expecting them to. Not a color I would EVER chose if i were paying for them, but they are just demo's so I am going to ride the crap out of them while i have them! (I was told to throw them in the hot r not thread for a laugh)

    I look at it as a win win...Either you love how it still looks and I get a Hot OR you dont like them but cant deny that they are Hot....as in HOT Pink?

    Lol this is true, BUT just like everyone in my thread said before I posted pictures, I thought the same thing..."this has to be a joke!". At the end of the day, the wheels are freaking PINK for goodness sake!!! It does look waaaaaaay better than I had imagined in my head before putting them on for sure!

    Don't know about pink...but I'd agree that the bike looks good with a bit of color added. I really liked YOJiMOB20's use of blue (rims and bar wrap on the Litespeed).

    You are getting to try before you buy and you are irritated about the color? I wouldn't care if they had pink hubs, purple rims, and gold nipples. A free demo is a free demo.

    well to make it sound even worse then, I'm not even buying. She just wants me to experience different wheels and hubs so I can know first hand instead of having to ask someone else what their thoughts were. I will be purchasing form her eventually, but the purpose of these demo tests are not for buying purposes.

    In that case you deserve the pink wheels (which I kinda like anyway)

    i was just giving you a hard time. I look forward to your feedback.

    Not to my eyes. Not bad for what looks like a tall bike with classic lines, and also looks very roadworthy. Might be better with a black seatpost, but the contrast between the silver post and the black-to-blue transition throws me off.
