I recently retired after 45 years working in Accountancy and IT management, mainly in the pharmaceutical and medical services area. Married for 41 years with a daughter and 3 grandsons.

Recently spent some of my hard earned pension money on a Nikon D90 with lenses from 18mm up to 500mm and looking forward to using it.

The D90 was replaced by a D7000 some time back and last week 5 lenses from 10mm - 500mm were px'd for a 24-70/2.8 and a 70-200/2.8 together with a 1.4 teleconvertor. The 500 was getting a bit heavy and very much under used and there were too many choices to be made when I went out.

County: Hertfordshire

Patience has it's reward.

I know they say the early bird catches the worm but in this case it caught a fish.
