good bye tax money...............
I have both of these and used them well during a vacation in march.
One thing to note is that with the lens hood on, there will be a shadow cast. even if you are using bounce mode. Affects the shorter focal lengths, from 18-5X mm I think.
Try taking photos of something on a table at 18mm and you will see what I mean. The only way to get rid of this is to remove the lens hood when using flash indoors.
