Looks like it may be a little wet chaps, hopefully most of us will have WR lenses, and as an added bonus we wont have to put up with the strong contrasty light that ruins portraits

I remember now why I keep meaning to get a WR lens - oh well - we will see how WR the 17-70 is!

....wonder if steam punks are WR?

The lens is remarkably WR for a non WR lens.

Can't say how WR the steam punks are though.

Have a great time tomorrow everyone.

My ankles and toes are killing me, seems that short stroll along the canal has awoken the arthritis as long as it settles down for Whitby next week I won't complain (much)

Good to meet you Iain, and Dave and a surprised rare visitor to the forum who was toting his Nikon, Peter (sorry can't recall his username) who was rather annoyed he'd left his K5 in the car on finding there was a PU meet

Thanks to Davem for pointing the event out and scuppering Fountains Abbey, we all had a really good day out.

now who will be brave enough to post the first pic
