I`d say that PMFJI is as "necessary" as OTOH, AFAIK, etc. It all depends on
who`s writing and what sort of net language they use.

I`m lazy... ;-) Actually, if I`m not wearing my contacts or glasses, or
it`s late at night and I`m drop dead tired but really really need to check
my mail and reply before I go to sleep, in case there`s a message of vital
importance... then I tend to get sloppy and forget the shift key. Saves
those extra seconds (I pay pr. sec. for internet & phone line...) I`m sorry
if it offends anyone!!!

Obl OM-content: I have (as the subject implies) a Tamron 39-80/3,5 macro,
and was wondering if anyone else has one. ie, am I the only person who
can`t get a decent shot with this lens or is it really awful and I should
get rid of it ASAP?
