    Just switched to Glyph drives. The quality is second to none. After three Lacie failures in the last four years I'd had enough. I dare you to find a poor review of a Glyph drive.

    Re: Only one lens Forever

    135 APO Sironar-S. Beats my 110XL in resolution hands down. If I don't require the extra IC of the 110XL, then the 135 is the lens for me.
