    Wahoo two more votes than I expected. Thanks John & Trev :hiya:

    I have a TZ9 and a TZ35 - OH has the 9 now so only use the 35.

    As with the last few weeks it is a shame for some of the shots to go without a vote such is the quality but mine goes to the runaway leader this week Goso :smashin:
