Ta. I always take those reviews with a grain of salt I'd rather rely on people I know most of the time.

Obviously not my photo, and likely not even a Nikon but I found this interesting:

Had some trees trimmed today. The guys were handling heavy chainsaws as easily as Japanese chefs handle their sushi knives. It was money well spent -- rather them than me!
Nikon D7000 and a bunch of Nikon stuff — oh, and some Canon p&s's too

What lens's do you have for the camera?

Yeah I knew it was an Aussie surfwear brand, but to my knowledge it's no where near Melbourne that it comes from, I believe it originated in Torquay, which also happens to be in Victoria, but that's the only similarity. There's also the more internationally successful Aussie surfwear brand Billabong that started off around Sydney too.

Torquay is about 100km from Melbourne and it's a place that you go to in the summer to go to the beach. In Australia 100km is very near (it's 75km from my place to the airport and we are at opposite sides of Melbourne). Things aren't regarded as being any distance until it's more than one tank of fuel there and back.
I think Billabong is actually from Queensland near the Gold Coast rather than NSW.

Beat me to it K1W1.
Australia has a really low popultation density still with predominantly single story detached housing. Although I live in a small city of under 1 million people, Adelaide is 65 km (roughly 45 miles) from long edge to long edge (as viewed from space on google earth).
