    • Despite being a rather old lens now this has always provided rather stunning performance, the only issue is occasional 'zoom creep' when the camera/lens is hanging down, but this is only a problem if running/jumping with the camera not being held.  The ring-type USM drive is very fast and provides full-time manual override, on my 40D focus is always spot on with no hunting even in poor light.

      Hopefully you can see from the picture that the lens is in very good condition.









      I don't have the original packaging, but will ensure the lens is very well packed and will be posted by Special Delivery. I'm looking for £95 (inc, delivery), but you are more than welcome to visit & try out the lens in Plymouth, Devon and cash on collection is more than welcome to save on postage.

    • Great flight shot Ben  I must get out with my laser lens again soon. I don't want it seizing up...
    • Any speaker that needs Triamping 'probably' shouldn't be.  Too many parameters to mess up   Two ways give far better results
    • Some start to room tuning .. Seriously research and Get a decent Room analysis program find a couple? of cheapish microphones. Then.. Do a Decent effort /job of room setup. It may surprise you.. a lot, always does Merely  going out and buying a myriad of 'Slightly Better' gear ...only assures of a depleted wallet.
    • Still finding my way around the new site format.  Lookwise a good improvement but, so far, a bit of a challenge. How can I forward a private message to another Wammer?
    • That is interesting that you haven't heard much of a difference in swapping over cables, especially as they're so varied in how they're made. I agree its not as dramatic as swapping speakers but different cables for me have brought out the best characteristics of a speakers sound, or even made them sound totally lifeless/or harsh, and just by changing the wires. Cables can make or break a system overall I think, how it does it via electrical compatibility or what I don't know, but it does something. The cost of them however is another story, in a blind test you might tell which one you prefer, not which is the most expensive! Sorry guys off topic carried away with the wire, but its a good thread anyway, I'd love to listen to that system of yours sometime Keith, this looks fascinating and lots going on there.
    • Thank God for that, I could just imagine the arguments that may have followed if you'd have said yes!  I've had dacs that run purely off battery power before but the thought that the battery type could make a difference has never occurred to me until now.
