Re: my son wants to go to school in GIRNE AMERICAN U. CANTER

I know nothing about the school itself but Canterbury is a nice enough place with good links to London and the continent. Canterbury is an historic place which means a certain amount of charm, but it also means driving through (or really around it) is painfully slow at times. As with most places in ...

Re: Weaver mount to screw in to tripod thread

What are you hoping to attach to what? Do you mean a weaver rail or weaver scope mount and do you want to attach to a female or male thread?

Re: Wanted - 75 mm ish Len's for Scopeless

I've got a Sony 12.5-75 mm f1.8 C mount lens that I don't need as I now have an f1.2 version. It has been fixed at 75 mm and sprayed black - it looks a little tatty but is optically fine. If you're interested I can upload a pic so you can take a look.
