Weight and Stuff Report – 23 February 2016

Up a bit today.

Something I’ve been waiting a long time for arrived today  :tigger:

Sadly, it arrived too late for a lunchtime test in good light, but here are a couple of quick test shots. Full details when I’ve had a chance to take it out properly. I might even identify it then..

Well, OK. It’s a long lens. And just as I like to test wide lenses from the middle of the Millennium Bridge, for long lenses, it has to be Earl Grey. Here he is at the long end of the lens.
