    55-300 or 70-300 ?

    Thanks Tina, I think I must be one of the lucky ones as it turned up on 28th June and I love it! ........I was sweating a lot before it came as I read all the same reviews as you AFTER I had ordered it and it disappeared off the site as well! Here is a recent pic taken with it. Heather

    Beach huts (again)
