Well I went with the 35mm in the end as it does pretty much all that I want in a prime and should augment my two kit zoom lenses (16-50mm and 55-210mm) quite nicely. That's enough money spent on lenses for now.
Now its just down to practice and learning how to use it all.

Smart Watches

Annoyingly I broke my Apple Watch 3 last year and after several months have got an AW4 as I missed it. Even better is that my health insurance provider pay towards it on a sliding scale if I do a certain amount of exercise during the month. OK I am letting them have some of my information. However, ...

Well here I am 1 month before my 300km London Revolution ride and my training regime has been terrible. Too much stop/start going on. I know I can ride 160km in one go and I know I can comfortably ride 80km at present. I need to ramp up the training a bit and not burn myself out in the process. I am...

Yeah I have come to the same conclusion after reading many different articles online.

Trying to work out what sort of bag I would like as well. I like the idea of a sling type as can be used when riding too. Looks like I need to visit a shop to check out sizes etc first.

What TV series have you watched?

59492 I have just finished watching Sex Education. A brilliant series. Once you get your head around the weird 80’s staging but with modern people, themes and mobile phones etc. The writer has a love of John Hughes 80’s high school films. Well written and very funny. Loved it! What would you say it...

Well Johnmcl7 , I played with it a bit in Barcelona last week but mostly stuck with the Auto settings while I learn the controls. There are way more now than when I had my D70 10+ yrs ago. I have to say I love the size and handling of the camera which seems to fit my hand well. Lots to learn though....

Well I am looking to buy a camera. A long time ago I had a Nikon DSLR, I forget the model now but it was a 6mp model.

I am considering buying a Sony 6000 as I would prefer something a bit smaller and pocketable than a DSLR. Any others that I should be considering?

It has definitely made a difference. Less numbness in feet and fewer problems with hands too. I have decided to ditch the new bike thoughts as well for now too. I went for an 80km ride yesterday and it was great, although i started to feel it in the last couple of km’s. I picked a route that had a f...

What TV series have you watched?

59469 The good place! Just finished season 2! And it certainly had a few moments that I had my crying! But had me laughing out loud too! Great and well worth a look! I am mostly through Season 2 of The Good Place. A great programme although I would say Season 1 is much better than Season 2. It feel...

What you playing at the minute?

Well I have been trying to get back into gaming on the XBOX and have mostly been playing Wolfenstein The New Order with the occasional bout of Forza Horizon 4 thrown in for good measure. After not gaming for 3+ years I am finding my use of a controller on FPS games to be nowhere near as good as it u...
