I am sure for all of us when you can only shake your head and wonder.. “ What was I thinking?” I wish I could say that it is a seldomly occuring experience but that would not be true. Most of the times the situation is one of stupidity and mild humor. The kind of thing easily laughed off or repeated to friends with a depreciating smile and shake of the head.
And other times, frankly it is just bone headed stupidity or failure to pay close attention to details. In this case it is not the slightly more than 100gm of weight that I have been hauling around in my backpack since leaving h9me earlier this month. It is the fact, that after all my careful planning I have a very nice 60mm lens nestled safely in its compartment. A lens I had been planning on using while out meandering around Stockholm. A lens that works just fine when attached to the correct camera body. The 7D non-full frame camera on the shelf back in Berkeley, and not the higher end 5D or 1DX bodies which both weigh a ton but are “too upscale” to fit to this lens.
