  1. The SRE-950S has yellow markings.
  2. Two hours into the race and it is still open for grabs, this is hilarious :) They need tracks like this.
  3. It depends, if it has the jumper block on the inside, then you don't need to do any soldering at all to switch the voltage, you just need to move that to the right place, and it's done.
  4. Gold aside, these small 35mm f/1.4 primes are very versatile and fun to use. I wish I'd tried a lot harder to master them, couple the ordinary look with today's social distancing, and it becomes a real challenge to take interesting pictures with them.
  5. For me, and endgame headphone needs to achieve two things: it needs to be balanced and natural enough to be enjoyable with a wide range of music (also very easy to tweak the rest of the chain) and it also needs to be magical (ipad jokes incoming). Some headphones do one thing well, HD600 comes to mind for the first, HE90 for the second. Luckily, for me, the SR-Lambda scores a double hit. After the first try in 2009, somehow along the way, I lost sight of how unremarkably amazing it was, but all is well since 2012. Flirting with other headphones is jolly good fun, in that sense, there is
  6. "Better" is a relative term, each has its advantages and disadvantages. There are several SR007Mk1 variations (70xxx with the carbon box, 71xxx, SZ1) and it is probably very hard to find a 'golden' sample now, because why would anyone sell such a headphone, unless he is completely unaware of the differences and happen to accidentally own such a pair. And without comparing two SR007 headphones side-by-side(maybe new pads on both and a properly seating headband, since both may also affect the sound), it may be difficult to evaluate it. So for practical purposes, the Mk2.9 should be a better,
  7. You don't need any tools for this, just use your fingers. That way you don't risk tearing it either...
  8. The new Canon lenses are great. All of them. This was taken with the RF 28-70mm f/2 lens. The EOS R is a bit quirky but also very powerful, overall I like it and I can also recommend it (or the RP which gets a lot of unwarranted hate) with the RF 24-105mm f/4 IS lens, which was also great.
  9. From the video it seems quite clear that it is not going to be an SR-009 replacement but a new take on the SR-Omega and it's going to be priced accordingly.
  10. If it is not listed as B-stock specifically, it is brand new.
  11. Only partially. If it was a 'full-on' ad, it would be the usual, 'best I've heard, worth every penny, you must upgrade now' rather than 'I think I prefer the SR-007 Mk2 now'. Speaking of which, in this shop, both the SR-007 Mk2 and the stock SRM-727II (as well as the SR-L700) are available at a significant discont (weirdly, the set price is not discounted), although I don't have any experience with them but these are a lot better than the usual EU prices.
  12. The SR-009S is the new flagship and they said they are evaluating if it is better continue with the SR-009 production or let the SR-009S take its place (and just sell the available stock). This limited edition model can be considered as an 'experiment' whether they can sell more from the original SR-009 and it seems that they certainly can so it will be staying for a while. P.S.: video review is up at the other place.
  13. Yep, it is, but there is demand, so they make all sorts of silly editions. And Japanese Leica prices are insane to start with. I have the old version, which is almost identical, great little lens. Paid less than 700$ though.
  14. Considering its rarity it is a reasonable 45,000 yen premium compared to a new SR-009 (but of course you can get one for a lot less now used) I wonder if they took a leaf out of Leica's book. Because Japanese people also have the option of an old-new Leica lens in black, which funnily enough, carries the exact same price and also the exact same amount of premium compared to silver (limited to 50 pieces, so I guess it is sold out)
