    I assume you mean you tried selling the e for £1500? It's because you don't have the magical box ;)

    Something happened to the top section of the camera. The dials wouldn't change the shutter options ie continuous shooting etc. Alse the got shoe wouldn't work a flash.
    It went back and was all sorted in days no questions asked.

    I haven't heard of it happening to anyone else so it could of been a one off. I wouldn't worry about sending it back. Just choose a timescale when your least likely to use it

    Just had fiber optic fitted into my flat, I only get about 500mbps d/l and about 108 mbps upload, not too shabby I think.
    I think if we lived closer to the main exchange we'd get upto 1gbps.

    Bloody hell. I get 32-35mbps upload and about 4-7 upload. It's fibre too, although not the fastest. The faster fibre here is still well below 100mbps download.

    Quick question:

    Teetering on the edge of the Sigma 70-200 2.8 (lastest version) for £500, 1 year old from Jessops. Seems in decent condition etc.

    I have also this morning been offered a Tamron 70-200 2.8 VC for £570, 2 years old from Jessops. Seems in decent condition etc.

    Bearing in mind weddings is the aim, low light AF and 2.8 performance are pretty key factors, which is the better buy?

    I don't know how they compare to each other, but the Sigma is noticeably slower than the Nikon VRII.

    Tamron IMO!

    Although if looking to go pro I would really try save for the G2.

    I had an sigma and the iq was poor. So I went the whole hog and got a second hand nikon vr1. Whole world's apart in iq. But do was the price.
    It pains me to say it but id probably go for the tamron if I had to choose one of those.

    I need a new game. Been a destiny 2 fan, but its getting a bit tedious now! Was thinking maybe Far Cry 5. God of War is getting 10/10 reviews though.

    I think 70-200 initially is the 'safe' option for weddings, all depends how you shoot. You can normally get close enough with 85 for sure. But they are heavy beasts to lug around.
