What???? I ask you is that anyway to respond to a client? So I opened the pdf file and got quite a shock.

Gulp!!! Not sure it's worth the repair considering the lens only cost me £260.
Also there was nothing to say why these repairs were necessary. As far as I was aware the switches, contacts and connector was fine. So I'm asking myself, am I being either fobbed off or taken for an idiot? Anyway he will not be doing the job, in fact we are going back to the shop on Monday to ask some questions and collect the lens!!!! In the meantime I successfully bid on another brand new lens on ebay for considerably less price then the repair quoted. This should be arriving within the next 10 days.
Today was the ECP&DA work party. On the agenda, replace the fence running along our mooring. This meant my bird feeders had to be relocated and, as a temporary measure, the TV aerial pole has done very nicely thank you. Just hope my birdies aren't put off by the new location. Oh and another bonus for us.....we can use the wood as fuel for our stove.
