    Default New camera and lens.

    I'd like to thank all those who provided me with help and guidance when I was looking for a replacement for my trusty Lumix FZ-50. I bought a Canon 40D with a 100 - 400 zoom which will satisfy my interest in photographing birds and aircraft. A few of the shots I took with it have been posted in the Australian Birds section and a few more will appear in the Trip Reports section soon.
    Cheers,

    George

    Congrats George, it's a great all round combo if you ask me. Get out and enjoy it, your pics from it already look good.

    Congrats on the new toys mate. You're going to love the combo and it'll inspire you to get out even more.

    Your images have already taken a giant leap. Once you get used to the new toys dials and stuff you can really start to show off.

    Looking forward to more of your shots.
    Cheers,
    Geoff

    George, you won't know if the new combo works until you get back to the NT mate I have a brew waiting for you

    Glad it is working for you, it is working for us.
    Cheers

    Congrats on the new gear. What you've purchased is what I've got my eye on for an upgrade next year, so I'ld be keen to learn from you how you find the gear.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    @Nolan, we were seriously thinking of returning to the NT but our kids chose Noosa instead. Can't wait to, one day, taste your homebrew.

    @Mark, I'd be very pleased to give you my opinion of the kit when I have fired off a few more shots. If you ever get down to Melbourne you can use it.
    Cheers,

    George

    Sounds great! All I have to do is convince the wife of a need to spend some time down south, use Don's advice to send the wife on a shopping spree for a day and we'll hit Werribee!!!

    It's working very well and I don't expect that I will have any problems, Keith. Ofcourse, you'll be the first to know if I do. Thanks for your help and service.
    Cheers,
