    Welcome! Some great shots there. Interesting to see real photos taken with the 75mm lens. Very tempting!

          Wonderful series. On the whole I'm not a big fan of London (worked in the city for a few years), I guess I'm not a lover of big cities being a bit of a bumpkin these days. Having said that there are some parts I like a lot, and the Borough Market area is certainly one of them. (The pubs are another ) This series and your blog post certainly makes it look attractive.

            Welcome to the forum, James, and thanks for posting the link to your blog entry. It's a great set with facinating narrative. However, regarding the 75mm lens, you do realize that at least 5 members have had a serious GAS attack after reading this and one is still suffering from EES (Extreme Envy Syndrome)! I suppose you'll make things worse by getting the 17mm f1.8 when that's available, too!

            Great work, James, keep it up!

              Hello James and welcome to the forum,
              You have some fantastic shots there that make me feel quite homesick.
              We are coming down to herts and Kent over the Xmas holidays and I fully intend
              spending a day wandering around London taking pictures.
              Can't wait.

                I take it you're including me in this line-up

                I am now in a serious quarry as to my next lens. The 60mm or the 75mm. If I was seriously into macro there would be no difficulty. However, I see the 75mm having sufficient extra length over the excellent, and already-owned 45mm, that it is this lens which is leading the race at the moment. Always supposing we have money left over after Oz!

                      A great collection James. "Wine Wharf" really does it for me - no idea why, but why worry about that!

                      Ciao ... John
