    Wondered about that. I was thinking of selling my excellent 70-300. As I don't think i will really need it now I have the 16-105. Even though I could get £200 + for it I think and put that towards a decent 35mm prime.

    It IS fun though.....:smashin:

    Sadly not...but thanks for the tip. In fact I might check as I did have BT a few years ago and you never know :thumbsup:

    Nice one

    I very rarely used my 70-300, not because it wasnt a good lens as it was very good. But Id rather make a bit of money back and let someone else enjoy it than see it lonely in the cupboard when I take my other gear out.

    Put your money towards something youll use, thats my advice.

    I agree. I love the lens and it really does take great shots but like you it seems a waste to leave it in the cupboard. Thinking of £220 or so ? Its in perfect nick...

    Yes...look better pics as a result :thumbsup:

    Hard to say, most recent on ebay went for 220. So I wouldve though 180-200 is a decent bet.
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Not 100% sure as I stumbeld on it by accident. I already paid for a years pro account unknowingly, then associated it with my bt email address, for a complelety different reason and vola....it now says on my account page.

    "You are signed in to Flickr via your Yahoo ID (user@btinternet.com) You have a Pro account, at no cost as long as you keep your BT Yahoo! service. "

    Havent had bt for years....

    Took this over the weekend. The quality of the 16-105 is still impressing me.....

    Cheers Jim. I get some nice shots from my North facing study...the sun just catches things right. Especially with that angry sky. Only PP was a reducing the temp in RAW to around 4700 I think and a tiny increase in contrast. Other that that its as I saw it....

    Crops extremely well close in.....tribute to the lens IMO
