So, since I've brought it already, why not use it anyway? I did a number of family shoots with the bamboo. Yes, working distance is horrible but what the heck - better to use it than log it around on my back as a dead weight...
Then, of course, Akerue did use it for some provocative shoots like this one:
(right click on it if it doesn't work)
All in all, it was worth bringing it along... I poisoned Clement, Akerue had his "fun", me gotta test it out with my family shoot...
Next time, I'm bringing by 60mm for sure! The minimum focusing distance of this lens is one of the closests in the entire Nikon range! Hahahaha!

But if I did have the zoom in it, still manageable - the shoulders will be protected from fatigue due to extra buffets in the padding...
MAI TU LIAO!!!!
I can buy a brand new one for less money
D90 kit is now <$1400 (would you believe it...), and can sell off the 18-105 for about $280-300....
Some people will actually try to make money when they sell. If not, means the seller is allowing the buyers to negotiate and the higher price acts as a buffer.
Previously I sold my monopod brand new and still in box, I put $70 firm, still got people offer me $50 or $60. Singaporeans ah..... Moreover, CP retails it at about $160-$170
Nikon D90 | AF-S 18-105mm | AF 50mm f/1.8D | Tokina 12-24mm f4 | Sigma 30mm f1.4
Now Akerue has poisoned me silly with the D3S...
That's why yesterday I posted two weights... If you guys haven't figured that one out already, it's between two FX sets...
D3S Versus D700+Battery Grip (to boost 5 FPS to 8). Surprisingly... D3S weights 200+ grams lighter than D700+BG...
Expensive no doubt, and I surely haven't been prepared to go all the way out for FF... But heck... time to save up from now to mid next year!
