New toy! 300mm AF screw-drive!
3

May have gotten another of my bargains, sub £500 with 14 day trial and 6month guarantee.

Serial dates it to 1986/87, not mint but not battered to bits either, test images look nice and crisp.

So far, am amazed how quick focus is with the D3S, a little less with D300 but not hopeless. Seperation lives up to all the buttery-smooth cliches.

But I can see it's going to be a proper pig to carry around all day. Next project, build a cart running on wheelbarrow wheels - I think I can figure a design which will take it, 80-200mm and 28-70mm, all on bodies, facing down and resting on lens hoods.

It's got three days of work this weekend, can't wait to see how it performs!
