walker2000: Not for summer, though.

I'd say, "only for summer", walker2000, cuz, I don't think it would be warm enough for a No-Fun City (Vancouver, BC) winter and, definitely not, for Winnipeg, MB, winters :D

Jack Simpson: Wooooo Hoooooo .... so, I could turn my (normally) boring Tele Takumar 400/5.6 into a Yowzers 2200/3.72 lens and have another reason to bring me Pentax Q7 back to life :)

I know and, I tried it with my PhotoSniper and, wow, tough to handhold ..and difficult with a big manfrotto monopod :o

On article Shooting with a used DSLR kit that cost me just $80 (284 comments in total)

Very cool, Micael and, yep, if one shoots properly there isn't any reason why one couldn't shoot with the Canon D30 or, heck, on occasion, I still pull out my Canon G2 and, if I could get it working, bring back out my 6mp Pentax IST*Ds :).

Jack Simpson: @ Richard Butler, from a retailers standpoint, in downtown Vancouver, BC, I'm constantly amazed at how many people, either, forget their charger and/or battery at home -- usually plugged in ;) -- or, how many people come with just a battery -- usually thinking that because whilst at home, they only charge up their camera battery every couple of weeks and not thinking that, weather permitting of course ;) they might take more photos in the first day of their holiday than they might do at home for a few months :o. Having said that, most camera shops (here) have learned to carry a number of batteries and chargers of (almost) all vintages :D Cheers and a cracking selection of photos, BTW :).

You are, indeed, a very wise person, Impulses :)
