    Its been wet for the past few days here. About 15 deg max. Not that cold but cold enough to bring on a good o'asthma again
    Bummer on the athsma Kit.

    The PC lenses are slow to use and a lot of fun, stop it down to around f8-f11 for best results.

    I take it you've borrowed and F100 and PC lens or are moving over to the good gear?

    Thanks for the tip again Ian.

    Actually, I've moved over already but not the PC lens. Its the digital route that made me move. Know what I mean?

    Heh!!! Thanks for the welcome. Nothing against the system I used before. In fact, I liked it very much and still do. Its just that they can't give me something I really need I guess

    I was thinking, prob need something wider than 28mm to capture the whole room. Also to go down to about f2 or at least f2.8 in case the room is dim. I don't want to use a tripod as it's a hassle...

    Oh yah and budget is very constrained... so the cheaper the better. By the way I have a Canon EOS 10.
