All taken on my Canon 1DX with a 70-200L 2.8 II lens if you are interested, and at Twycross.

I'm interested, but I am not at Twycross. Can I still look at them?

Sharp, great contrast, colour balance etc. Very good.

I had to look the camera and lens up, being about 5 years out of date with camera equipment.
Gulp.

No Moggie you can't.. :D

Trekbuster, PPI reclaim paid for them and Grey imports, so you can knock about 2K off the price you saw for UK stock :)

Bummer!

I would have said how good they were, but as I can't look at them I won't.

Tony, enjoy it!

Due to my changed financial circumstances recently I'll have to soldier on with my 7 year old Pentax equipment, much as I'd like to upgrade.

You definitely get what you pay for, especially with glass.

Trekbuster, You've not had any ppi? I never checked, but called my bank after getting hounded on the phone and found three car loans that had it, I claimed through the bank not a company and got 8K... You can have it on anything from mortgages to credit cards to store cards... Was sceptical until I was told how much...

Glass is the key as you said, even if the camera is getting on a bit it's the glass that is the key, though no one ever attains what the camera can do.

Ok Moggy u can look :D

Hi All,
Tony,
Did you just forget that you had opted for the PPI when taking the loans out ? As I just asked the wife and she said you would have had to have opted like myself only I chose not to when I bought my last car just like yourself for months we have been bombarded with PPI calls so you set my mind racing :eek:
Your pictures look smashing very clear with good colour and details, anyway about your camera do you find digital or film takes a better photo ? myself I never made the swap having not mastered my Cannon EOS :D

Well done on the new camera. We all need a little retail therapy now and again. (I'm still mulling over a new lens :) )

Lovely pictures !

Tony, Just an idea, why don't you pick out the 12 best photos, get them made into a Calendar, and flog some on Flea Bay, perhaps Twycross may also be interested.
