Re: Anyone print A3 ?

I use an Epson SC-400. It prints A3+ and 13" roll paper - so is good for panoramas.

Re: Which filters for 7-14 pro

Yes, we are very lucky to live on a ridge ~200m above sea level. It looks over the Cheshire plain to the south west and on clear days we can see the outline of Snowdonia against the horizon.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Since the only firm rumours are that it will be expensive and the best thing since sliced bread i expect the price will be well into top-end Sony Alpha territory.

Jim's idea of Chatsworth is good. There's lots of variety (deciduous woodland, waterfalls, lakes, Hunting Lodge etc.) in the estate above the House.

The autumn colours have yet to develop fully...
