Ahoy Folks,

Just thought I'd publicly thank Xerubus for letting me purchase his 70-200 VR. It arrived yesterday, and from the short play I've had with it, I must say I'm over the moon.

Thanks Mark! :D

Now to find something to photograph!

Any motorsport in NSW soon?

Ah, if only, then the chicks would dig me. 8)

I sold the Sigma glass on Ebay for a cool $950! almost payed for half the VR. I'm afraid I've been a bit of a turncoat...

Okay Trent,
This sounds a great idea!
Although I'll try and not get a fixed speeding notice like I did last time I visited WSID :evil:
Anyone else fancy a day at the drags? (Not the Kings Cross type by the way :lol: )
