I think I've finally worked out the vegan thing, Monty. If you eat meat YOU probably have to do the grilling

Phillippe - Thanks, I love the Seine shot. Excellent separation. Did you put the vignette in or was it the lens?

Samy - that "thing" looks like a naval gun! Very nice eagle. The Conowingo pics are also good.

Scott - thank you.The berry image is really sharp and I like the bokeh.
Kevin - great set of leaves and the flower.

Ian - more good portraits.

Bert - that's a turkey! Monty's tofurkey nearly put me off my supper. Where I come from "Chicken" is a vegetable!

Jose - thank you. What a beautiful flycatcher. How would an insectivorous bird transmit mistletoe? Does it also stick to their feet? Also an amazing set up - my tripod would collapse!

Americo - you've got it now!! Lovely image.

Monty - what a tree! Is your brother in law a lumberjack and how did you get it into the house?

Ray - thanks and what a characterful portrait of the bearded gent. Terrific. It is the standout shot.

Eilean Donan Castle - built in the 1200's but blown up later when some Spanish soldiers came to help the Scots against the English and lost. Rebuilt 90 years ago.

These are fantastic! Thanks for sharing these great shots, that 50mm f/1.8 E series is starting to make me consider my next lens choice!

It's the cheapest lens, I think. And remember this is on film and carelessly scanned on a flatbed. The lens is way better than this.

Thanks Matt, Monty, Ray, Scott and Peter.

Peter, this flycatcher is in fact omnivorous and I saw it regurgitating these viscous seeds on other branches, thus my supposition.

Americo, what terrific sets exploring the bokeh of the 85/1.4, fantastic!

Ray, loved the portraits, mostly the first one;

Ian, as usual, beatifully captured castle in B&W with the humble but very capable 50/1.8E.

For those that need a little more reach in a compact lens:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/300817913868?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

If this auction does not reach USD 500 or 550, I think it will be a good price for the condition of the lens.

And a reasonable price for the 180/2.8 ED:
