That new Tamron 150-600 is looking rather interesting! I hope it will be "affordable" so say around 1.000-1.500 euros. Would be great to get a bit closer than my 100-400 and it even has IS. :D

Final stretch of writing my master thesis. Can't wait to finish it!

Great, Bjorn! I remember when I did mine 2.5 years back - it felt like I was working day and night the last three weeks!

That's something I already thought myself. :) 600mm is quite a lot - 600mm on a full frame camera is similar to the 100-400mm on a crop camera. And a 600mm lens on a crop camera... great! :D Two things: Price must be payable and the optical performance shouldn't be the way you could get when you resize a crop from the 100-400mm :mrgreen:

Let's hope so! The only thing I could think of to improve my reach was buying a 500mm/4 but those old babies are still very expensive. Maybe this will help us out :).

If I owned my house here in El Paso, I would be all over solar panel. I can't believe more here don't. We have so much sun it is crazy. Then in winter and spring I think there is enough wind in just those 2 seasons to warrant a windmill-generator.

Great thought..Even I have got both solar and wind farms just due to plenty of sunshine and wind in our region.

Anyone else having trouble with flickr just now? The only size option I have for sharing is "original." Somewhat beyond the rules for this or, probably, any forum.

Seems fine for me, WM.
You haven't previously clicked on that `Try our new photo experience beta` have you? (I tried it & couldn't get any links........so pressed it again & reverted to normal!)

Hi Carlos

I hadn't tried that but just did, and quickly left again as you did. There's no change. The only size option I have is "original." I have put it into the feedback system along with a dozen or so similar comments from others. What methods do others use to share pics here?

And then, Lo!, I try again a few minutes later and it is working again. Here's a closer pic of Fleetwith Pike to prove it.

Got a wildlife trip next week. Hope the weather is ok... but I've been really slacking this year and am out of practice... don't even know where half my kit is. Found my 5D2 in a bucket, and the 100-400L was under a bag of gerbil bedding.

For a while now I have been wondering about Leica. I still have a bit of a Leica itch but also a strong feeling that they have done themselves no favours recently. It is more than a year since they launched the "M" or M240 and only now are supplies beginning to trickle into the UK. Not sure about elsewhere. Meanwhile other manufacturers have been coming out with ever-smaller full frame cameras, some of which a number of people will consider are superior to the M on paper at least and at least two, the Sony A7 and A7R, which can also use Leica glass. Needless to say, all of them cost a fraction of the price of an "M." Fuji's X-Pro2 is also to come. In response, Leica seems to have done little or nothing. Opened a few shops around the world; a few Ms in different skins; some Panasonic-based compacts and some T-shirts.

What do others think? Have they become too lethargic/over-confident? Do others think that what they have done is enough? They produce wonderfully-engineered gear but, as far as digital is concerned, as yet there is no proof that Leicas last longer than other makes.
