Hello, Sound Devices MixPre-3.

I picked up a Sound Device MixPre-3 (not the second generation) a few days ago. I’m excited. Plan to use this as an audio recorder for personal projects and as an audio interface at work to replace my very nice pair of Roland Quad-Capture interfaces. No complaints about the Rolands. I bought this to replace my Tascam DR-100 Mk II for personal projects. I don’t need the microphones on that and I don’t need it pocket-sized, so this MixPre seems like a great fit.

Hello, Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8D AF-S.

I just placed an order for this from my favorite seller.

I was shooting a close-up live musical performance by a friend last weekend at a small venue. I didn’t like having to choose between my 50mm f/1.4 and my 20-35 f/2.8. So I decided to cover that range with one lens — the Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8 AF-S.

I’m looking forward to its delivery in about a week.
