    Took advantage of the recent dollar rally to get one of my grail shoes: St. C split toe derby in Russian calf.

    With the 20% off coupon ebay ran, and a sale of my own to offset, i got this bad boy with ~360 actuations (so effectively new) for about 130 out of pocket.

    Really wanted an 80d, but the difference between them isn't THAT major, at least for my intended use. This uses the same processor and sensor so I highly doubt I'll see a quality difference.

    I've always been really impressed with what the Rebel line can do, particularly with prime lens or L glass (L has never been in my budget).

    All of these are examples from the original Rebel (so 6.3 megapixel sensor) and an $85 50 1.8 or the slightly more expensive 85 1.8 shot wide open, with no flash, in nightclub light.

    That's downright impressive there.

    I have the 50mm 1.8 (the latest with the STM focus); that's what took all the photos I posted from my "rave hajj" thread in the OT section. Love that lens. Looking at maybe the 24mm pancake next to get some wider-angle shots of the ferrets and such. I think for next year I may make the investment in the 24-70L and possibly a 70-200L on top. Those should come in VERY handy indeed when we get to yellowstone.....

    Bob Mould = awesome! I saw him with Sugar many years ago now. It was like a wall of sound hitting me. Wicked show.

    grabbed a pair of meermin's latest unlined penny loafers. came with some barely noticeable marks on the suede and the edge dressing was not applied as evenly as i would've liked. oh well i guess you get what you pay for and i can't be bothered to go through return/exchange. at least the sizing is pretty spot on.

    I'm no expert on leather quality but these feel pretty soft and supple. Been wearing them around the apartment for the past hour to break them in a bit. No hot spots or excessive rubbing so far. So I say go for it! lol

    Edit: also I have high instep so it's a bit tight across the top but I kind of expect that on most slip-on/loafers anyway.

    @kongmw I've been very tempted by this pair of loafers lately as well. I'm not very experienced with their lasts though. How would you say these fit, pretty TTS or a bit on the narrow or wide side?
