5.0 out of 5 stars The only CD I kept, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got rid of my extensive cd collection some time ago, including the first ever cds I bought back in the early 1980s. There is one and only one cd that I kept: guess which one?

If I could take just one album/cd whatever to a desert island, I wonder what would it be?

An absolute classic for those of a certain age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still going strong..., 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this item quite a few years back and it is still going strong. Never let me down yet and is excellent value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its true what everyone says..., 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, for professional landscape and architectural photography, there is no other lens that can better this. There is a very steep learning curve to owning this lens and in the right hands can produce some truly magnificent images. Unfortunately, after months of use, I just wasn't wowed by the images and sold this in exchange for an 85mm 1.2L - of which I am wowed by the images.

Ignore my slight negativity - this is really one fine piece of glass: image quality from top to bottom and left to right is very sharp indeed. Nothing less than a 5-star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good, quality product, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent filter which does a good job. For the price can't really complain. I have, however, recenlty been converted by the exceptional quality of B+W filters, which seem to offer that little better quality than Hoya.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple product, extremely well made, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A necessity for expensive glass. Looks and feels like a top-quality product, of which it is. No reflections show through this filter, in comparison to other manufacturers' filters that I own that don't hold up too well.

For peace of mind and no image degradation, you really can't do much better than this filter; so good, I bought two of them!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for AI users, 22 Nov. 2002
This review is from: Illustrator 10 Bible (Paperback)
Received my copy of Illustrator 10 Bible this morning (prompt service as usual) - 6 hours later and with an empty stomach, I am still sifting my way through this excellent tome. What this book doesn't cover, is not worth knowing. I'm up to page 361 at present and still can't put the thing down. The topic on manipulating type is out-of-this-world and for any aspiring logo designers, this chapter is not to be missed.
I've owned AI 10 for a few months now and have been experimenting with the various menus and tools, but not until I got this book, did I realise just how good AI 10 can be.
I've bought many a book from Amazon, but this has got to be my best purchase to date (unless the Photoshop 7 Bible which awaits, proves otherwise!!)
