  • Hi Janet I'd like to start by saying how much I've enjoyed your web site over the years it actually provides an excellent reference work to help others identify a wide range of species. Now to your ...

  • As Ian pointed out in another thread the 10-30 can be picked up cheap on Ebay.  We used the 10-30 and 30-110 extensively when we first bought them in 2011, they paid for themselves many times over:-D ...
  • Did you add grain to the B&W? very reminiscent of 35mm Tri-X, certainly dramatic, my choice would go with the B&W, would look great as an A2 print. dave

    That is a used example though , new ones are still more than twice that price. I find that most beginners tend to buy new gear because they don't know enough to take the risk on used gear. I can ...
  • I've been reading these forums since the first day they started. The problem clearly occurs on the V3 and from what you say also on the V2 and yet no one has noticed it before. Probably find that, ...
