      Ray, after seeing Tony's post and he has put the same photo up I think 3 times, also taking into consideration his wife in hospital and can not visit her, I am worrying about Tony's health.
      Do you think there is some way we can have someone contact and check on him possibly through Johnsey or phil in his capacity as site moderator. If we both aproach either of them .
      His behavior is out of character.

      I hope you have had a good Christmas, Ray.
      I just recieved the Mamiya 645 to eos adapter so I can put the lenses that come with the Mamiya 645 set.

      I should be interesting to see how they go when I give them a proper tryout.

        Hi Craig,
        Thanks for your good wishes and I hope that you had a good Christmas too. We had a great day with all the family. It was a 340km round trip but well worth it.
        It sounds like Santa looked after you. You should have loads of fun with that Mamiya.
        Cheers,
        Ray.

        2nd part..
        Tomorrow I will be picking up my first Canon L-Series lens. A 17-40 came up at a ridiculous price that I could not resist. Can't wait to try it on the 1Ds.

      Thanks Ray, one or two more would be nice, two of the students have been there since day one . The class has been going for about six years now and one of those students is 92 this year.

      Hello Ray, I have just had my ten seconds of fame on TV, my photography class was part of a story done on the community center done by one of the local TV station down here

        Hi Craig,
        That's just great. It is so hard to get recognition for activities like that so I hope that it might help to increase your membership (if that is what you want!!). Well done, mate.
        Regards, Ray.

      Reference to missing post, I put a post up about favorite lens but had a small problem with my computer namely a sticking key so I deleted the post. I have another keyboard now. The 1D mark 3 has live view , whoopee for me as I find it helps with the fine focusing. I use Soligor 28mm F2.8 M42 lens for landscape, sorry for the confusion, Craig S.
