I popped down to Hambledon earlier today. Which gave me a chance to continue practicing my roll (I’ve decided I need more confidence in it) and try out the replacement for the 18-200 lens I trashed in Nepal.
As always Hambledon gave me plenty of opportunities to practice rolling, it seems near impossible to come out of it upright. The lens is the newer version of Nikon’s 18-200mm super zoom and seems to do exactly the same thing as the old version with the addition of button to stop it extending by itself when held pointing downwards. Anyway it seems to do the job so I’m happy with it.
