  3. If you are limited to 2 lenses and want to shoot Oceanics, as your post implies, then you will find the 60 too long for them. The Tokina will be of use at the 17mm end (depending on how comfortable you are close up to them). Generally I find mid range zooms such as the 17-55 or the 17-35 used on DX format, are good for mid sized sharks. If your kit lens is an 18-55, this may well be a good option, although you may need a close up lens depending on the size of your dome (I've never used the 18-55 underwater but other wetpixellers might have). Wide rectilinear zooms such as the 12-24 will also be of great use (moreso than the Tokina when it comes to shooting Oceanics) Hope this helps Steve

  6. Thanks for sharing Simon. It reminds me why, for years, I've tried to book all long haul with British Airways whenever possible - even if it means taking a slightly indirect route. Their reasonable set of excess baggage charges, combined with no weight limits on hand baggage (and you can carry a decent sized laptop bag in addition to normal hand baggage) is just worth such a lot when you look at how much airlines like Singapore Airlines and Malaysia Airlines charge for excess, and it takes the stress out of the situation. BA really came up trumps on the way back from a trip earlier this year, when neither me nor a friend had our 5 x 23kgs bags with us for reasons I won't go into here. A quick and polite chat with the BA rep at Buenos Aires airport led to them transferring our free baggage allowance to another passenger who was bringing our bags home a few days later - he had 8 bags with him in total. I can't imagine many airlines treating us that fairly. I've never been able to fault them on their customer service. Granted though it's simply not always possible to use them, but whenever I can cover the bulk of the journey with them, I do. Cheers Steve
  7. An excellent spread, congrats Alex
  8. I hope to be there also. I have vague memories of unicum from the 2007 Antibes festival. I recall it tasted like antifreeze. Quite nice really Didn't go last year, so also looking for a decent hotel as I don't know the area. Steve

  14. Hi If you download the latest issue of X-Ray mag (#33) for free here, you'll find an article that I wrote on the Solomons. My trip was carried out in Nov/Dec 2008, and the vis was great, the corals pristine. Bilikiki's boats are top class. All other info is in the article, so I won't bother repeating it here. All the best Steve
