28-300..... covers most things, 5 axis stabilisation for low light goodness.

Ahhh yeah the price is steep, however you'd blow that much on an 18 hr flight to Europe.

The camera should last a little longer...

Jokes aside...saw that on Gmaps too and it's still got me baffled as there's no way to even land/ start a Cessna on the bumpy grass track on top of the embankment/ dam.

Y'all too busy looking at the trees and ignoring the forest. Only ultralights use the lakebed. Light aircraft use the 4,000' dirt strip south of the town.

I use it a lot...and don't find it hard to use on the FZ100, even with gloves on.

The Buchan Pub was humming and the verandah's were full of family's enjoying the day.

The motorcyclist's arrived.....



Within a few moments all the people had gone.... the pub was ours!



There may have been a reason for their sudden departure... who knows?
