  • Replied in Of course! But,
    my second marriage is to the same woman as my first.  Looong story, but it works for us.
  • I still have one, but haven't shot anything with it in many years.  It's a beast.  Used an electronic flash with it and carried a very heavy battery pack for the flash on a strap over the ...
  • Helen: Have you forgotten the 25/250 rule?  When I'm happy with my customer experience, I tell 25 people.  When I'm unhappy, I tell 250.

  • is that you can't believe a word they say when selling them used gear, (total liars).  But buying from them has been as advertised in terms of quality and speed.  I have and still do buy from them ...
  • The Digital Picture has some test shots up on the 70-300 II and they weren't too impressed. http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=1077&Camera=979&Sample=0&FLI= ...
