    Might have to get more work in Sydney so I can come and have a look. Hope Canberra went well for you.

    cheers

    Since you haven't posted pics of the back of the camera.... How big is the LCD screen?... :)

    If I had more gear I'd definately be a better photographer!... Definately!

    They made some excellent kit - generally built like a brick shirthouse. And the lenses were usually East German glass.

    It was East German glass that the whole Teutonic reputation was built on and when the companies split to manufacture in the West to trade in Western Markets the image quality was never as good.
