Youíll be able to use Aperture for as long as you want to - as long as you donít update IOS to Catalina or later. Iím not sure about the lens information. Itís possible that the latest version of the 55-300 is not recognised by Aperture. I had a similar occurrence with Aperture not recognising the 16-85 because it was launched after the last updates to Aperture.

:PIt will be interesting to see whether some people's desire to get rid of paperbacks is matched by other people's desire to acquire them. :wink: SteveO ye of little faith!! Interesting point, though. :P

Whilst out on my 'one a day' daily walk yesterday, I noticed that one community spirit minded householder had put out his stock of 'read' paperbacks on his drive, to be collected by anyone who needed a book to pass some time. I'm going to add some of mine. I just thought it was a good idea.
