Another American/European language confusion. In Europe the standardized way to write dates is YYMMDD (year month day). So today is 070730, and Darren is getting married on the seventh of September twothousandandseven. Congratulations Darren!

Don't worry Roy, it is a common mistake and one I make all the time when reading American books etc.



We are 2 countries separated by a common language!



As for the ebay stuff, here's a prime example

Surely this would look better on a Pentax.

well i guess the camera isn't included even tho they didn't mention it. 16usd(probably more as the USD is slipping)is worth watching or bidding.

soon, before this ended they sent me an email saying they would be happy to sell this lens to mefor 399usd.
i have one of these and if it was mint, i'd say 150-170usd tops delivered.. it's very good performer with color and contrast.

go figure,
roy
