This weekend is going to be the litmus test for the camera, practise and lenses I've bought recently. I'll be photographing for an article... hopefully they won't notice the £35 second hand prime I bought :-s
If you buy second-hand from a camera shop, Like Mifsuds where I got my 400mm F2.8 from, you might pay a bit more but most give a warranty and grade it, and it's usually been checked and repaired if neccessary.
You might be surprised at how good that prime is.
