Thank's for the condolences VS. We did give it a decent send off, with a 21 flash salute after which I mumbled a bit of Ansel Adams while fighting back the tears. {They can always be removed in Photoshop!} I never thought about the credit card insurance. I did however, arrange a separate "away from home" policy to cover my photo equipment, & there is no excess {deductable} on it. I was just thinking, now I have the opportunity to start over if I think I Need something better for a LITTLE more money, what choices do I have. If I stay with the 300mm zoom range but with a larger max aperture, say 2.8 I could then use TC's without too much loss of light or IQ. Problem is, it would probably cost 3x more than the Tamron, maybe more. AsI said it's a good thing I kept the 55-250! Now if you will excuse me I'll go back to the wake! lee uk
