Whenever I see a twisty (or click/twist) that shows brass threads, I'm immediately turned off. Maybe it's because I've been a photographer for the majority of my life, and I equate brass threads with a broken lens. I also hate yellow gold jewelery and watches, and bags/belts/shoes with gold or brass hardware.
Anyone else go out their way to buy only lights that don't have brass threading?
Yes, I am nuts.
