    Grin What are you buying yourself for Christmas?

    Yes friends.... it's that time of the year again. The time to eat, drink, be merry and ...... blow your hard earned ca$h on the things you cannot afford.

    Here's my vice:

    I believe Blutwolfin is quite an established photographer. I'm a mere rank amateur

    I started off on one side of the camera and ended up on the other. Favourite subjects close ups of insects and various other little guys and of textures.

    That is off topic. Sorry. :offtopid:

    This will be my way of a giving a lousy year a splendid ending:



    With its 7 5/8" foot to head length and 49 beam, the Habana Partagas Lusitania is one of the most majestic vitolas ever made. It is a splendid cigar with round notes of earth, coffee, chocolate, and exotic spices that never allows the palate a dull moment. Each and every draw seems more delectable than the one before it. This double corona never fights the smoker with its strength, but rather lures him in like a sultry siren. It is a truly magnificent cigar with an exquisite aroma that is certain to seduce even the most naïve while also leaving the most decadent Havana smoker sated. Although named in honor of the ill fated RMS Lusitania, which was torpedoed by a German U-boat on May 7th, 1915, this classic Cuban double corona proves itself to be unsinkable.

    In Cuba this sucker goes for about $15. Over here ... well, RoyBatty's comment on treating ourselves to things we cannot afford is more than appropriate. eyes:

    It probably depends on your circumstances. I bought a D70 body because of the superior price / performance advantage (at the time) which now means being limited to Nikon (or 3d party) lens offerings. From what I gather both lenses (Canon's 70-200 IS and Nikon's 70-200 VR) are excellent choices.

    But nevertheless interesting to hear. The more lighthearted threads shouldn't have to stay rigidly "on topic" :
