Ok, wasn't aware of that one, thanks John

At over 1k more then the F4, it'll have to go on the back-burner for a while, particularly as no bonuses will be coming my way for a while

Hmmmm.... ive bitten the bullet, but not on the Scottish one, I decided to pay a little more and support SRS, plus they offered the normal 2 year warranty and for me, should there be any issue in that time I can drive there and get it sorted.

So I'll have my boxed Sigma 70 - 200 F2.8 up for sale on here first fairly soon
