The lens was not even attached to my canon 60D but placed on a table and the camera placed against it. But the trick bit is having the lens back to front. (i.e. large end to the...

    Why is it, if you are in debt to big firms they will give you a discount? I have an example. Someone owes company £508.00. if you pay in 28 days will take £381 off debt. Amount to pay £127 instead of £508. or they may take legal action. They never do this for me as I always pay my bills.
