    Wooo Hoooo .... good news, Stephen :) All of which means you
    can start looking for new Fuji kit ;) or, perhaps, prepare for
    a little trip to use your new Fuji stuff :)

    Cheers,

    Jack

    Can't touch the money, it has to be returned to my savings to pay off* Beardy Branson's Credit card!

    That said, I sold some stuff at my Camera club (£400) so with the cash back (£570) what's left over might be able to fund a small lens - handy as the photography show is coming up in a couple of months.



    *I could just give him the money - but it's a 0% card so I want to earn a little interest on it - and having my own savings pot it comes in handy to purchase the odd camera!

    I decided to trade all my Eos stuff in so after this and the cashback I have a bit of lens spending money.

    Currently thinking of the 100-400mm + 1.4 converter, but I'm holding off till the Photography Show in a few weeks as there might be more discounts or cashback offers available.

    I'm tempted to replace my traded Eos fisheye with a Samyang version, I'll have a play with one at the show first.

    I use the 7.5mm version on my M43 kit. It's more useful than a full circle one. Fisheyes can inject a bit of "WTH?" into otherwise boring shots but they need to be used sparingly.

    Thanks Andrew. I personally prefer your type, I'm not keen on the full circle versions.

    Well worth considering, I've have an 8mm one in Nikon fit...

    Hi Stephen,

    We, the store, have sold a number of the 100-400 lenses and one of them went to Antartica on a Nat Geo trip
    and, of the results I've seen, albeit on Facebook, it looks a great lens :). They, the Nat Geo team who went
    to Antarctica, had a show of their images but, of course, it was on working day for me :(. So, hopefully, one of
    these days ;)

    As for the Fisheye, something that Fuji hasn't announced but, luckily, there's an abundance out there from
    other manufacturers :) and they are, indeed, fun :D

    Cheers,

    Jack
