4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Lens, 9 Aug. 2010
Great close up portrait lens, but has a minimum distance (0.4m) and being f1.4, it is sensative to focusing errors. HSM ensures quiet focusing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 7 Jun. 2010
Light weight, bright and lasts a long time. Went Mountain climbing at night with it and had no problems. The on-off twist mechanism is a bit fiddly though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap & Not Perfect, 7 Jun. 2010
For the price, one can be reasonably happy; but be aware of the following:
- the hand strap is too short
- the walking stick rubber end falls off after long rough hikes


Does Foreign Aid Really Work?
Does Foreign Aid Really Work?
by Roger C. Riddell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.14

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnum Opus of Aid, 30 Mar. 2010
Riddell weaves together a very ad-hoc and tattered subject spanning local charities, celebrities, governments and global enterprises; to give the reader a view of the state and direction of Development and Charity Aid. Not only are we lavished with a historic view backed by facts and figures, but we are also made aware just how naive we are about poverty. In many ways we are the Columbus to "discover" a new continent, when others have been there and done that. Poverty and Aid as it seems are old acquintences.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why?, 26 Nov. 2009
Why is every historian, psychologist, failed journalist, surgeon and local shop assistant writing about Global Warming in an authoritarian and deterministic fashion? That would be far more interesting a topic than the rubbish spewed here.

How would Feldman react if I wrote a book on anesthetics, which is his speciality. Perhaps this book can be a new form Anesthetic for the most painful of procedures.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unjustified, 26 Nov. 2009
A man who has no knowledge of science, who doesn't believe in evolution for no better reason than personal prejudice, is nonetheless appealing to a wide audience. Why? For the same reasons he points out in this book: fear. As Nietzsche said being good was a fear of evil; Booker like Nietzsche is guilty of the ironic reverse, that his fear of responsibility and reform has led to a position of ultra-conservative doubt.

I do not question that climate change, as we currently understand it, might be wrong; but why are we listening to this man about perhaps the most important question for humanity?

After Virtue: A Study in Moral Theory
After Virtue: A Study in Moral Theory

5.0 out of 5 stars Occasionally, an honest book emerges, 11 Nov. 2009
After Virtue, poses all the important questions on what we really mean by morality and virtue. Are our senses of right and wrong, consistent/universal or personal? Should they be and can they be? What did the ancient make of it and can goodness escape the emotional subjectivism and be rational?
