How great is the strap with the Silver edition... it has a nice feel on my neck... might use it in the meantime instead of my BlackRapid strap!

I did notice though how on the strap it says "Made in Japan" but the box says "Made in China"... which one is telling the truth ?

Did anyone notice the silver edition came with 2 batteries? That was a very nice surprise.

...and (in Australia at least) an 8GB FluCard Pro. I haven't set it up yet.
Both where montioned somewhere, flucard and second battery to be included. Makes the offering very nice, with the grip and dogstrap.

Great. The silver edition is available in 29th this month here in Japan, though. Why does it take so long.....?

My Sigma 70-200 is an excellent low-light concert lens, but the IQ of the DA*50-135 is so much better I rarely use it now. I would certainly recommend the Sigma over the DA*60-250 if you want reach at close quarters, especially in low light. I haven't used the Tamron, but it is screw drive so will be noisier, and probably slower focussing than the Sigma. Considerably cheaper though.

Yes, I have the FA31/1.8. It is an absolutely glorious lens. Sharp wide open, sumptuous colours, and beautiful bokeh. The focal length is close to the ideal normal lens for APS-C cameras.
I am agonising over the FA31/1.8 - I might just have to bite the bullet. Thanks for the info re the Sigma 70-200 and although I take your point re the IQ of the 50-135, I do want the reach and it would complement the 24-70/2.8. More cogitation required I haven't experienced LBA for years but I think I am having a relapse. By the way, great photo!!
Cheers

Those sequence shots show promise, mate.

Were you using the 43?
