Hi Gary, you are probably listed as "commercial" because you posted your introductory post in "Industry members, please introduce yourself", instead of in the general "Member Introductions" thread.  In other words, you classified yourself that way.

And this post makes an even 20 for me lol. Kidding aside I like the idea of a minimum post count but I am not sure what a good number would be. I have been a member here since 2007 and only have 20 posts. I am usually a pretty quiet guy in all areas of my life so I tend to not post much. Lately I may average 5 or 10 posts a year on my own Facebook page. I'm not sure I agree with a minimum post count to respond to an ad. I believe there is at least a small number of people who come here to get started and one of the first things they may do after reading all about which system is right for them (cough, cough Canon dslr cough) they would likely try to purchase something. I also think the purchaser assumes more risk than the seller since they will likely send payment and wait for delivery. Just my quick thoughts fwiw.

 

 

Except that this policy would not affect purchasers (unless they are trying to post a "WTB" ad), but rather the sellers - and is designed specifically in attempt to offer at least a little protection for the purchaser, since they are the ones sending money just as you say.

Hmmm, that is an interesting idea.  I'm afraid that I can't offer much help, but one issue that immediately strikes me is that if it is permanently mounted, you will have to have some way of cleaning the lens (as well as the rest of it, but especially the lens), or the marine growth will obscure your view fairly quickly I would think.

Thanks EvilOtter, I will look into that option as well, then.  With my current setup, I usually do use the built in autofocus, which if is good enough, might not really be an issue as you say.  Thanks.

Thanks Andrei, that is very helpful information indeed.  I agree that the WWL-1 will be wider than anything that I am really interested in, and there is a lot of appeal for either the 12-60/180 port or the 12-50 and flat port options.
