Being practical, I haven't reached a point yet where I'm so unhappy with the 18-55 that I want to replace it, but I'd definitely look into it if I had the cash to spare. After all, the quality I can get with it is still miles ahead of anything I had before.
The statics at fairford were a real eye-opener for me. I really enjoyed taking those pictures, wish I'd have had more time (and sunblock
) to do some more. I remember standing beneath the wing of the DHL 757 and thinking "Where else could I get this close to an airliner?" It was great fun.
It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.
