    Another vote for the Olympus TCON tele-extender lenses.

    Remember though that you can usually only use them at the longer end of the standard lens' zoom length without getting vignetting. Also at...

    Superb whale pics. I'm as jealous as hell now!

    Some of the shots showed the balleen plates very well and others the distinctive double-blowhole of the baleen whales. Were they Humpbacks?

    Epson 1280

    Thanks for the recommendation. I'll take a look at it.

    Phew! You were lucky, and so was your friend!

    I fear if someone did that to my FZ50 I wouldn't still be referring to them as 'my friend' but more likes as 'the deceased'.
