Trouble about buying a 'new' lens is that you tend to shoot every thing that moves for the first couple of weeks no matter what the weather- sorry!

Plus some from over the road at Lakenheath - Spring has arrived and the sun moves nicely around in the late afternoons although the light does have a weird effect

Whatever the new lens is it's worth every penny. Great pics.

Cheers

It was thanks to the heads up section that i caught the Turkish.

The lens is second hand but was still over £800! ( New it's nearly £2k )

Very nice ... the C5A images are fantastic - love the shot showing the undercarriage bogeys all crossed up.
