Very nice. I haven't been able to get out much to use mine, and tend to use the RX100v lately. But when I do use the DSLR I use the 50mm prime more than any of my other lenses. The zoom on the 300mm is fun but lacks quality at the top end. If you do get the 300mm then get a good tripod, don't rely on the VR too much. (And disable VR when you do use a tripod).

Re: What have you just bought?

New battery for the car: Exide 53 Ah £70 delivered. I could get one locally but it's bound to be more expensive.

Old one is 9 years old (OEM) so not too bad.

Well, other than the "not allowed within 30 ft of nuns" club, that is.

no, it was just to clarify why I would have an office-type chair at home - having a room to do work in, with a suitable desk and chair, beats working at a dining table (if you have the option).

I’ve worked from hope (off and on) since 2000, when I joined BT Cellnet (as was), and they encouraged working from home, and even supplied a desk, chair, footrest, and sundry IT equipment.

Being ‘over-friendly’ with penguins = bestiality

Vital not to get them mixed up...
