 Was reading in the Guardian that there are proposed changes to book importation/selling agreements that might make Australian publishing less plentiful (which would be terrible, there are so many great Australian books right now) - any clue about this?
 Do you think that those words make much of a difference for prospective buyers, though? I don't, really, and I don't think it matters much, it's like saying something is printed in the darkroom when it's actually C-type printed, there's a group of people that see that as misleading but most people won't care as long as the result is what they feel is worth paying for, hence I doubt that 4 words have much of an impact.

They all make good images so it matters more what you like. There is very little (if any) major differences between output in beginner gear.     IMO: 1. Why set on a DSLR? They are heavily, larger and make very little sense for someone who doesn't aspire to do a lot of PP or do anything particularly involved 2.

Thanks for the recommendation, LET'S DO THIS.
SALT optics - love mine.
