    EDCPlus. Illumination Supply also carried them, check out CPF Marketplace. I think the cool white X60L3 (that's what I ordered) may be backordered already. Nichia 219 High CRI may be in stock. These are awesome, they come with an AR lens and it comes in a diffuser canister.
    Quoted from the post: The LEDs - 3 premium binned Cree XP-G2 LEDs, are being driven at 2A, and puts out an extremely efficient 720 lumens, rare in such a small package.

    BTW, never heard the term super jelly :bounce:

    Not bought, but aquired:
    Elgin American Magic Action Lighter. As far as I can tell it's from the late 40's.

    I had to do some minor repair work.

    This is a Klättermusen Fenja shoulder bag. The attention to detail that wen into the construction is incredible. Well worth the price.

    The color rocks.

    Please keep us up to date on this - 1.2 is impressive on a 58mm lens and the bokeh has to be amazing. Nothing like having a really good prime in your bag. I almost never take my Canon 50mm 1.4 off my camera!

    I started coming down with a cold last week, spending most of my time in bed, I haven’t really gotten the time to play around with it.
    The pictures aren’t very sharp, no idea what is causing this.

    Edit: The first 2 are shot with an CU+3 filter, creating the macro effect, the last one has no filter.

    At f/1.2 aperture the focus depth isnt very long, maybe you have to adjust the lens to the camera in focus menu.

    Today's high aperture lenses got better sharpness and contrast than most older ones.

    Exactly. (I tried to post a pic, but don't know how to do it in Tapatalk yet.)

    I think the finish is called Goldtone.

    I had to drill out an old flint that got stuck (corroded?) in the tube. That was exciting! Trim the wick, adjust the catch, repack the wadding. Works pretty well. As you can see it is fairly small compared to a Zippo. After a rough start, it now lights every time you open it.

    I finally got my Cold Steel Inferno! Amazon kept delaying it till finally next month. But I used Amozon Prime so it was supposed to come in 2-3 days! Cancelled that order and bought it off of EBay. And I love it!

    For my Eagletac D25LC2 XM-L2's ET/Panasonic 3400 mAh 18650... previous sentence would have been gibberish to me 2 months ago ;)
    It has a 1A output setting too, not sure why it says just 500mA, so it charges reasonably quickly.

    Get well soon - I think I have your cold :(

    There may be distortion from the adapter - the lens is designed with a certain distance from the inner lens to the film/sensor and that may be off just enough. I must agree with MangeD700 that 1.2 has an extremely short focal length: on the Canon 50mm 1.2 it's a bit over 6mm. I take a picture of your face and the tip of your nose is focused but your eyes aren't. Check the forums about this.

    You may also want to attempt to adjust the camera to the lens via the menu, if possible, but this might not get the results you desire.
