Hi Russ,

Is it just me, or are the 2 poll choices identical.

I would like the option to switch between the 2 modes.

SDM when I am indoors and i need it to be silent and then Screw drive while the 50-135 is in its water-housing, so I can hear the audible whizzing of the motors.

The poll feature on the forum will only allow for two choices. I didn't know this setting up this poll, you set the poll options after posting, so I did the best I could to work around the issue.

I set up the other poll to only count people that did want to have the feature. I just wanted to know how many people wanted the feature. I didn't really care how many didn't. This seemed to invalidate the poll in some people's eyes, so I set up this poll as a complement to the other poll to offer the non option for those that had issue with this.

I have to admit to thinking that someone might be tempted to vote against the option because they didn't have any issue with SDM, only to find a few months latter that they did, and then want to change their vote. I set the other poll up a long time ago, before I think, a lot of people really where ready to entertain the idea. Maybe I was wrong in thinkng that.

Thank you
