I took the plunge!

In fact I had already ordered the bespoke raf camera adapter, while I was still procrastinating, so I suppose buying the lens was inevitable ….

I will write it off as a 62nd birthday treat for myself :)

LOL! Like a bus, one comes, and then another one soon after!

A few hundred $ cheaper than the one I bought, but there for another brave soul to plunder!

I have no doubt my purchase triggered this one to be listed. :-( :-)

Dogman and Hugh, we all have various backups/spares: hard disk drives, memory cards, camera bodies, batteries, etc. Why not a Heligon? I have got two  ;)

Yes indeed - me also.  I always buy hard disk drives in multiples of two and keep duplicate copies of data on each.  Ditto for favourite lenses and I always travel with backup bodies and lenses.  An inexpensive outlay when compared to the cost of plane fares and hotel bills.

People seem to be having so much fun with the Heligon, that I could not suppress my smart arsed remark about hooligan behaviours!  ;D

;D ;D
