  2. Not had much chance to go out and play with it yet - thursday should see that put right. So far though, I can say it's one beast of a lens. Tack-sharp wherever the zoom or aperture is set, beautifully built too. Not sure about the robustness of the hood though - reports are rife of them falling to bits. A great idea in theory having a hood which retracts and extends so readily, but whilst well-engineered it feels under-built. Will be interesting to see how much use the Oly 75-1.8 gets after getting the 40-150. The 75 is a bit special though.
  3. Guy Martin's WWI Tank

    Indeed - although local folk were well p*ssed off when the news came of the tank's appearance being cancelled. Rumours flying around said that this had nothing to do with H&S but more to do with the bleeding-heart lefty cretins believing it wasn't 'good' to have a tank in the High St. W*nkers. Right bloody shame if you ask me.

  7. That's one very sweet-looking lump of glass, Ben - look forward to see what it can do. Before getting the Nocticron, I was sorely tempted by the Voigt 42.5-1.2 but bottled out at the last minute when mine came up used.

    Popped into Lincoln this morning as there was a photographic show on at the Engine Shed, organised by LCE. All the major manufacturers were there, plus I got my hands on the new Panny G9 which is a rather lovely bit of kit. Took the camera along for a bimble around the Lincoln University buildings too...
