    Hi Des
    I was thinking of you just now reading Michael Palin's book "Erebus" including accounts of the ship's visits to Tasmania on its first Antarctic expedition. A good read, and definitely a place I would like to visit someday.
    Meanwhile next Tuesday we head south for 3 days in Santiago, Chile including a guided trip up into the Andes, then 8 days in the Falkland Islands. Should be a nice change from the very quiet birding and photography here in Toronto at the moment. Hope to be able to post some decent pics when we get back.
    Always enjoy your shots.

    Hi Des !

    You bought a Sigma 400mm tele macro last year on Ebay, and I too was nearly in the auction but pulled out because I wasn't sure whether it was AF - you might remember me telling you this on the forum.

    Well I too have finally won the "power ball" that is the Sigma tele macro in Pentax mount and mine should arrive in the next few weeks from Japan. YAY !

    The reason why I'm messaging you was regarding the AF. You mentioned that you would send off the lens to some place in NSW and have the AF reinforced. I am considering this also. Can you tell me whats involved and give me any details of the place that does this ? And how was your experience doing this procedure ?

    Kind Regards
