An excellent Canon L series lens

Advantages: Solid build quality, excellent results, quick focussing, quiet motor
Disadvantages: Rather expensive, could be heavy if carrying around all day

New prices are around the £1100-1300 mark - I saw a second hand one in my local camera shop last spring for around £800 and jumped at the chance. Hardly used at the time, but I've made up for that now.... As an aviation photographer who specialising in ...

Review of Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 AF

A serious lens for serious photographers!

Review of Duracell Ultra Camera battery (DL123)

Battery flattery

Advantages: reassurance of Nikon brand
Disadvantages: generic equivalents are cheaper

This battery uses Li-ion technology which has been a great relief to me as I am the world's least disciplined battery charger, slapping batteries into chargers at any old state of charge. You can imagine that back in the days of NiCads and their dreaded m ...
