The 135mm F/2 Defocus lens is a hard animal to tame. It does take great pictures, but focus is a struggle. I’ve found that it’s best to operate this lens manually, as the autofocus is slow and unprecise. However, it does lead some great photos, like this one of my compact SRAM Red crank.

Over the past week or so, customers have been admiring this new Pinarello Dogma 60.1 frame that was ordered for AH. AH had decided upon using a custom paint job thanks to Pinarello’s My Way customization scheme, which makes this frame stand out from the traditional Dogmas. He also ordered the Di2-compatible frame, which allows internal wiring of Shimano’s Dura Ace Di2 electronic shifting group.

Rachel is pissed at Andrew. Brendon tells Rachel that this is part of a plan. Rachel doesn’t like that Brendon kept secrets from her. It doesn’t go over well with her.
None of the HM believed Andrew’s speech. Matt talks with him. He tells him that no one bought his POV speech.

Laura is flip-flopping. She keeps wanting to leave. Marcus Bentley will go into the BBUK house.
Jo tells Laura and Corin that she really feels good this morning. Laura and Corin are exhausted. Laura leaves and goes through the door where the mole hole used to be. She tells the crew that she can’t do it anymore. It’s the fire exit. She tells that she wants to go.
It’s been an hour since Laura has left. The HM are unaware that she has gone.
