    I've seen this kind of thread on a few forums, and it's actually a convivial place for general talk. So, why not us too :).

    ..aaand Black Friday strikes again. Although I had to also bring in Santa to get the "OK" :D. Still worth it. I hope. Will see when they get here.

    Hadn't found this thread before. Not directly sim racing, but I will use it to help texture my buildings. 1030488.jpg

    Oculus Rift purchased in the black friday frenzy... not 100% my 970 is up to the task but we'll find out soon!

    Bit self-centred, but the thing I'm most looking forward to is seeing my own creations come to life in AC! :ROFLMAO:

    any reason is a good reason ! Indeed the Balck Friday prices were finally what Palmer initially announced "ball park around 350 $/€", considering the package includes the Touch controllers.
    I got/received mine last summer for my birthday but.. can't use it in AC: I get dizzy ! :D

    I'm extremely interested to see how I cope with it in AC, given thats what I plan on using it for 95% of the time!

    I tried VR at Spa this year for 3 measly laps on Project Cars 2... And whilst it did cause some strange discomfort in the first couple of braking zones/corners, by the 3rd lap it was feeling great!

    I expect being able to fit it correctly and take the time to ensure its setup properly will be a big advantage, though I am expecting it to push me to spending more money on a new GPU... Hope i can hold off till the next gen!

    Still rockin' a 5D mkII. It's been round the clock but still working so I can't justify a mkIV. Yet...

    @garyjpaterson I would definitely wait for the next generation. Somehow.. :D

    @Willy Wale my favorite model, I love all 5Ds. Even though I only own a 550d. But my lenses will fit the full frame, when I will be able to upgrade. My main lens is a 17-40mm F/4L.

    @luchian we may need a photo equipment GAS thread

    Yes, the 5D is the right size and it does the job. I bought mine when the mk III was launched and the price dropped.

    My main lens changes. I go through phases of leaving the 50mm f/1.8 attached. Superb quality for less than 80 pounds. But otherwise it's the 24-70mm f/2.8
