    Just pressed the button on swopping my old 60D for a 70-200 f4 from MPB

    Need to keep this one quiet from my wife as the money from the 60D was supposed to offset against the 80D purchase :)

    The problem isn't so much seeing things through the viewfinder, it's arranging the subjects to photograph in the first place, and then reading the settings on the camera. Why do the make the lettering so small these days? :)

    Well, I've got my grey background, and we're watching the grandkids at the weekend, so hopefully I'll get a chance to try it out :)

    I might replace my 1D3

    Still very happy with the results in favourable conditions but here in Sunny Scotland - some extra useable ISO for wildlife would allow me more opportunities.

    I no longer lust after a Sony A68. I now lust after a sigma 100-300f4 to go on a Sony A68. I blame Bobsyeruncle for starting this thread!:D

    My next purchase is tuition days with professionals. No point in keeping buying gear when i should watch and learn from those who know how to use it properly.

    Well that came out of the blue. Not exactly a purchase but px'd the D810 for the D500 after trying one at the NEC (well, PX on Friday at least).

    I would like a Canon 70-200f2.8 ii but because of budget might end up having to get the sigma version instead.

    Next purchase? - Glass screen protector for the A7r (can't find a GGS one) & a set of metal Meike auto extension tubes so I can cut the close focus distance down from 40cm on the 50mm F1.8

    Lust after? - The new Sony 85mm F1.8 & a decent 135mm

    I use these protectors on my Canons but they do the A7 as well, perfect fit.

    By the sound of it, a lot of visitors to the show at the NEC rather fancy the idea of a pixie - while she may well be lusted after, I'm not sure she's available for sale (but can almost certainly be rented!)

    I'll be ordering a Manfrotto BeFree One at the end of the month for my travel tripod needs.

    Currently have a Red Snapper and it weights a tonne.

    It is really, really good, the extra light makes a big difference and it's pretty sharp. An extra bonus from the extra light is that focusing in liveview is easy as works with any star. Here is the result from test this morning:

    Thats a cracker, and good to know. As a coincidence my Sigma 24mm Art arrived today, but Im clouded out and forecast to be like that for the next few days so no chance of any stars for me
