    pretty good, but I like your usual stuff better...it's nice to see the full aeroplane, having said that, the fools rush in shot is really cool.

    Me " I need to get out more and take more pictures ...going to the cricket was fun"

    Mrs " Why don't we go to an airshow? "

    Could have knocked me down with a feather - last thing I expected.

    Could be going to Duxford before too long.

    Supposing... just supposing I was thinking of buying one of these 100-400 beasties... where would you reccommend I look ? :devil:

    Cash payment place preferred to keep it off the cc statement :rolleyes:

    Looked at completed ebay sales and £820 ish seems about the going rate for recent used.

    Sunday the 11th seems possible for Duxford.

    Kerso has nothing for sale at present + looked through recent feedback... no large zooms.
    POTN pm sent anyway.

    I believe he's been on hols, and his other half has been ill...
    I'm not sure if he's trading on ebay at present, but hopefully can sort you out privately..(my 100-400 was a private deal):smashin:

    Typical you might be on for the 11th at Duxford..me away for a long weekend... :mad:

    Aperture Photographic had one on their site for £890 (mint) - it's sold now though. I've bought a couple of bits off them before now (lens and flash) - they're a good place to deal with and you can usually haggle them down a few quid...You get a 6 month guarantee too. Might be worth keeping an eye out.

    Kerso's prices seem pretty hard to beat though.

    He has quoted £875 delivered. Guess the exchange rate is not what it was.

    May still go for it....
