I've already handled enough of them, by the way, to know that I'll be happy with one, it's just a question of finding the right one at the right price.

As it happens, in shooting, I've found a significant problem with the lens mechanism that means I won't be keeping this one

Thanks, by the way, Mark for the generous offer; If I ever find one I'm satisfied with, I'll shoot you a PM if that's OK.
