    It will eventually pay for itself. I previously had the a7ii which was honestly perfect. With the version iii releasing I didnít want to lose my ass due to deprecation so I sold it. Amazing camera though

    I tried to make the Sony 50mm work but I just couldn't do it. Very noisy and hard to grab AF where you want.

    My Rokinon is tack sharp but very heavy for a 50mm. That's typically the price you pay though with 50's.

    Proud to announce I finally got the wheels mounted! I want to give a big thanks to everyone that reached out to help make this possible. I was very close to just parting ways with them. It just goes to show how truly awesome this community is.

    I didnít have time to wash it and the lighting is pretty harsh today so Iím going to wait to post pics, i know such a tease lol. They deserve to be showcased and Iím just not happy with how they are portrayed on my phone.

    Iíll have pics up either later tonight or tomorrow

    More shots of the new wheel setup. I am absolutely loving them. Kind of a pain to clean since they are 2 piece but man it's worth it.

    I finally got around to properly showcasing these beauties. I have been in contact with BC Forged and they will be up on their website shortly as well.

    I have to say, they are an awesome company to be involved with. I chatted with Jonathan for a few hours today and have nothing to say but great things. I am glad I went with them.

    Here is the link to the full album for anyone interest:

    A few teasers (:

    Very very nice!!

    And I agree. I've done 12 or so sets with BC this year. They are fantastic to work with. My guy even responds on Sat and Sun which is huge for me, as I'm also 7 days a week.

    Congrats! I wish mine had the black optics but unfortunately my dealer didn't have a single one on hand.

    I usually hate chrome but it flows rather nicely with the polished lips!

    I had it on my S3 and It looks good on the S4. Either way the S4 looks good.

    I pulled the trigger on a set of front and rear PowerStop z16 brake pads. Hopefully they'll reduce some brake dust and still provide a nice bite.

    Initial impressions of the new pads:

    They provide a smooth and linear stopping power. The initial bite isn't as harsh but does not feel too soft in anyway. I feel as if they are a very OEM feel minus the hard initial grab.

    So far no noise and the brake dust does seem to have decreased. My wheels were slightly dirty before installing so I will report back after I clean them.
