    Thanks everyone. I feel somewhat of a fraud versus Peter. On the negative side, my condition will never get better. On the plus side, it shouldn't really worsen. Another plus point is that I now KNOW I have a brain - I've seen the piccies on the MRI scan! It found a Cavernoma which causes an intermittent twitch. Now it's down to the DVLA to say if I am allowed to drive.

    Pete, that's awful, so very sorry, sounds like you've got the right mindset though, and you're tough enough I know that much. A close friend of mine had Hairy Cell Leukemia a few years back, had the treatment and is now as good if not better than before. Keep dropping in when you can and good luck with the treatment.

    Sorry to hear that, but you have a great attitude :) You have that fighting spirit to get the better of it, best of luck, hope all goes well.
    Sorry to hear this too. Sucks to get bad news or to end up ill. I'm going through a bit of a bad bout myself but seeing you and Mac's posts makes me realise there's always someone worse off. Hope things improve for you both

    Presumably you mean buying new from a shop as in lens split from a kit, if so yes standard 12 months warranty

    Bottom line is, it depends on the store. But if you're buying from a UK retail source they have to give a warranty unless explicitly stated otherwise.

    Very sorry to hear this Peter, and glad to hear you're bearing up. I'm not a doctor, but I know a fair bit about leukaemias, especially CML and to a lesser extent ALL and AML, so if you ever want to chat to someone with an appreciation of what you're experiencing, please do drop me a message whenever you like. All the very best...

    Not the 12mm (more will come), but here's a picture of a stick in Scotland, where even the sticks are more photogenic :)

    Cheers Stephen, and all the best with the weird tangle of blood vessels. I have a bit of a tremor myself at times, but it's not severe and the medics seem to have decided it's not worth looking into any further for now. Hope you get a thumbs up from the DVLA.

    Does anyone have or can recommend a wireless shutter remote for the X-T2 that is NOT the phone app and can take photos from long distances i.e. approx 50 meters away?

    Good luck with the DVLFA or UBWC as I call them, especially the medial department. Took them 3 months after telling me I was allowed to drive after applying (pending a decision) to decide (against my surgeon and GP's advice) that I wasn't fit to drive then 12 months to process the reapplication (claiming to have lost the original paperwork but then finding the payment and photographs). Apparently the stumbling block was some medication I'd had to take as a prophylactic against the possibility of fits after open brane (sic) surgery to remove a non malignant Meningioma.

    Thoughts are with you and Peter - hope you both come through the coming years well.

    Hahnel Giga Pro is pretty good for distance, they claim a range of 100 metres, mine worked through walls too.

    I use Yongnuo RF 603 Mk 2, the Canon version.
    Costs about £20/25.
    Well worth the money. Does everything you want.
    Make sure you get the jack plug cable, and the Mk 2 version.

    What's the range like on them?
    Suppose I could try with one of mine, but it's hot, my leg hurts from self inflicted strimmer lacerations and you may already know

    Never really measured it but it's always been good enough for my purposes.

    As you have so kindly asked I'll get the gear out from wherever it has been hiding for the past several weeks and I'll do a test tomorrow.

    Not heard about your leg. I'm having plenty fun with my own. What have you been doing? It takes a particular talent to get a strimmer close to your own legs!
