I don't envy your cameras or lenses.....
27

....but heck do I envy your light. I went out yesterday afternoon to shoot some birds and test the G9 new AF a bit more. One of those UK days when it looks like the sunshine will breakthrough but never actually does. Quite bright, in fact ISO200 was fine but an indescribable flatness to the light. I was shooting Terns and Gulls so white on white or white on grey water. AF testing was very encouraging again so I should have had a few nice shots. When I got home and put the pictures up I was given a very disappointing set of pictures. Even on a bad day I always get a few pictures to move into my albums but not today. Apparently instead of my G9 and PL100-400 I had been shooting with a £100 point and shoot from e-bay, well that's what it looks like.

The suns out today but the light while much better than yesterday is still horrible compared to some of the postings on here.

So if you live in a place with great light for much of the year, count your blessings and next time you get a case of GAS remember that you already have a weapon in your armoury worth more than anything you can buy.
