Hi Bruce

My thoughts exactly! ... and accordingly I have nothing against the big ones
- I'm quite happy to look through those that belong to friends when out wadering
with them!  When I was canning the 40-60 range of a 20-60x zoom earlier on,
I meant to be general rather than just Swarovski (the Leica is just as fuzzy
& vignetted up around 50-60x).  From my experience, none of the zooms are useful
above 40x.

Cheers -- Lawrie
