Christmas came a little late this year, but I'm still beside myself with excitement.

Woot! Woot!

Outstanding. For that lens, you'll better be St. Subego this year.

They're both Canon.

The monster is an 85mm T1.3. The more reasonably sized one is a 50mm f1.2.

T-stops are similar to f-stops. The only difference is T-stops are measured while f-stops are calculated.

Back in the day we'd send annoying production assistants on a hunt for "a bag of T-stops".

Every camera outfit in the city knows the answer to this is "we're out, but have you tried..."

In my world, it was a bag of screen dots. Good times.

Awesome.

Did you have a stock line for annoying civilians?

We used "we're filming a mayonnaise commercial". Never failed to make someone lose all interest.

I used to be truck bitch, so I was a target.
