  1. Re: So stores/ebay sell 4x5 GG protectors but not 8x10?

    I broke a GG about 27 years ago. Since then I keep thinking of a GG protector. But Iíve been so careful ever since and Iíve never really needed it.

    “Wannabe wide angle”.

    Absolutely! I’ve been using 135s for 40 or more years. I once thought of it as a wannabe normal, though.

    I’m sorry you are in this predicament. Hope that’s the worst of your loss and inconvenience.

    Ok… you appear to be much more of a tax expert than am I. Where is it written that yard sale must be a loss? If the selling is at a level that is not at reportable, it’s simply not reportable.
