I just couldn't hold out any longer. I have ordered a new Nikon D850 plus battery grip from those great people at Wex Photographic. They are Nikon Pro dealers so as I am part of the Nikon Professional Service (NPS), I get priority service which means it should be...

It's Political Conference time in the UK when those who would be our political 'masters' preach to the converted (their party faithful) and try to convince the rest of us that their promises and pledges are more plausible than those made by the other party leaders....

Cards on the table: I know next to nothing about steam locomotives (other than I know NOT to call them steam trains or else face the wrath of the steam enthusiasts), but undoubtedly there is a fascination about them that draws me back time and time again.

When Oscar Wilde famously said "I can resist everything but temptation" it's a safe bet he didn't have the Nikon D810 in mind but I like to think in a different time, he might have done so.
