One thing I really enjoy is the view that isn't quite as popular or so common. And this is neither. A mighty fine choice. And great for the potential visitor, too. As they can see via your image that Whitby isn't just a swing bridge, lots of steps and an abbey. I know Whitby very well. But I had to think for a moment where you would have been to get this!

It's incredible... Zoom in. It's no wonder you got such a big print. The amount of seagull shit on those roofs. It's a wonder they can take the weight! The catholic church off centre to the right poking up near those trees looks brilliant too.

Yep - we rented a cottage on Alfleda(?) Terrace last year and one of the enduring memories was sitting out in front, with a glass of adult fruit juice, watching the world go by.

Absolutely priceless!!

And yes, that is one of the favourite hand-held shots I have, but in fairness, Nikkor lenses bow to nobody. You know that Si.

I have no experience of lenses to make any judgment or comparisons. But already I am beginning to be frustrated by the limitations on the f stop! I will be doing a lot of homework before I get my next camera... In a year or two.

He He! I have been wandering about with camera bodies and lenses for about 40 years now and I have always been convinced that the best lenses in the world are the ones I an currently using. In fact, they are nearly all good and depend totally on the head behind the finger that presses the button!

However, my current kit suits me to a 'T' so I am content. I would die for your zoom range however!!

These "super zoom" cameras are coming out thick and fast, now. Mine wasn't cheap. But it wasn't expensive, either.
