Dana D. Wiggins Thompson 4/10/2004 6:02:34 AM

Thanks everyone for the wonderful compliments! Paul, I recently took a Workshop with Bryan Peterson in Dubai. He let me borrow his Nikkor 70-180mm Micro AF ED lens! Wow!!! What a great lens...That same week I put in an order one from the Nikon Dealer here and I just got it last week! I absolutely love it and Highly recommend it! #471929

Paul C. Gazzanigo 4/10/2004 6:07:59 AM

Thanks for the info Dana - and, coincidentally enough, I just finished reading one of Mr. Peterson's books - "Learning to See Creatively", and I highly recommend it as well.

Thanks again, and all the best ...
