    SRS. On the Parade. They have the Arsat at £269, and a Russian 8mm fisheye in Nikon fit at £229.

    A fixed focal length lens. Not a zoom.

    OK thanks. I thought maybe that was the answer, but had not heard the term "Prime" before.

    OK I will bear it in mind. But how do I pluck up the courage and go in and say " Can I look at your Arsat, please" without getting into trouble.

    At least if you buy one you'll be able to shift your Arsat pretty quick!

    Thats why we have a "Prime" Minister Steve. He is fixed in his ways and refuses to move on any issues which do not agree with party policy.

    So "Two Jags Prescot" could be described as a Zoom Minister. Always interfering with every thing else.

    Does this all mean that a Prime Minister is of higher quality? And has a bigger aperture?

    I have no idea what size Tony Blair's aperture is nor indeed do I have any desire to find out. Over to you "Fairy Ring" Steve on that one.

    Geoff,

    Leave Will and his lustfull thoughts about Jeri Ryan (Seven of nine) alone, for me it conjures up a picture of Will think(lust)ing about Jeri not unlike Homer Simpson drooling over Beer! Chocolate! Donuts! Food! the list goes on.
    I know for one that I'll be tuning into BBC2 6:00 pm To-night, hoping to get a glimpse of the delightfull Jeri.
    I'm now away to cool off somewhere in a dark corner.

    PS Will how the hell do you do Stoutys chad thing?

    A case of beer, a box of chocolate doughnuts, Jeri Ryan on the telly....NIRVANA!
    P.S. Can't tell you about the Chad thing, Stoutey has sworn me to secrecy and has threatened to kill me if I divulge the secret to another living soul.

    Might just have to have a peep myself Ron, just to see what all the fuss is about&lt;img src="/img/wwwthreads/smile.gif"&gt;
    If she's as gorgeous as Will makes out I might even be converted&lt;img src="/img/wwwthreads/wink.gif"&gt;
    Are you SURE you're going to a dark corner to 'COOL OFF'?&lt;img src="/img/wwwthreads/smile.gif"&gt;&lt;img src="/img/wwwthreads/wink.gif"&gt;

    Geoff

    PS I've asked about the Chad thingy but no ones letting on. But Will can do it so it must be easy

    Well in that case Will, you can tell Clive, and then we can torture him until he tells us.&lt;img src="/img/wwwthreads/wink.gif"&gt;

    OK Steve, you take Nick and I'll take Will. If we threaten them with a L***a strap they'll soon crack.
