1.0 out of 5 stars Excellent service but terrible lens, 11 Dec 2010
Initially I had many problems even mounting this lens to any of my Nikon cameras. Through correspondance with the retailer (who with all credit to them tried to be helpful) I was eventually able to mount the lens on one of the cameras (by having to adjust minute screws on the adapter ring). If you are a Nikon user who is used to operating in automatic mode you are in for a shock - this lens will not even register with your camera unless you use manual mode only. Fine, so far having now mounted the lens and my Nikon recognising there is a lens in place I can at least try out the lens. As a very experienced (ex-professional) photographer of many years standing I am used to printing my photographs on A4 and very often A3 size paper and as any Nikon user will know a Nikon lens can produce superb results to this size. Using the lens in bright sunlight I was able to use 1/500 with the fixed f8 lens mounted on a tripod and using a remote control shutter release. Out of a total of 25 pictures taken I did not have a single photograph that had any real degree of sharpness that did not degrade considerably above a 6" x 4" print. Yes I did check them on the camera screen after taking them and initially at thyis resolution they appeared to be "acceptable" if not exactly good. In the end I suppose it is yet another prime example of "you get what you pay for" and at this price I should have had more sense to expect anything different. In short instead of buying this lens - mount a beer glass or a milk bottle on your camera and you might get similar or maybe better results. If you are a discerning photographer who is used to pin sharp prints from a branded (Nikon, Canon etc) lens then do yourself a very big favour and look elsewhere - this lens will bring you nothing but disappointment. I would very much like to meet the photographer who claims the advertising phographs that are used to promote this lens (implying this lens produces this type of picture) and find out exactly what equipment (and lens) they really used. You will never convince me that a photgraph of that sharpness and clarity could ever be produced from this lens. Unfortunately I am now left with a useless piece of assembled glass pieces (I can not bring myself to even call them a lens)and some £140 wasted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 31 Aug 2010
If you want the real inside story of the Labour governement, without any of the personal spin, bias and personal feelings from political autobiographies or diaries, then this is the book for you. Brilliantly written, a thoroughly enjoyable book

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the novice, 26 Jun 2009
If you are like myself and have a passion for digital photography you will probably have one of the major software programmes for all aspects of this. If you are like myself and have such software - but have no previous experience of using such a complicated and exhaustive programme then you will find this book a gold mine of hints, tips and detailed instructions. The author assumes you have very limited knowledge and gently takes you through all the many features to be found in the software.

I heartily recommend it and would be lost without it (and my final photographs look absolutely superb and indeed professional when printed out)

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent text from a true craftsman, 25 Feb 2002
Whether a practicing professional, an academic or a student, this book provides an excellent overall insight into the world of E-Business. Whilst one or two areas do assume some prior knowledge, none the less, the author has provided a succinct and comprehensive coverage of all the major topics and elements that make up E-Business.
There are excellent examples provided to illustrate points made and topics discussed.
The B2B case study that runs throughout the text with self assessment exercises in every chapter for the reader to apply the learning from each chapter is a superb idea and provides the reader with the opportunity to synthesize their knowledge as they progress through the book.
