Anybody here tried these bins? They get a great feedback for massive lenses.

Done some homework and went to Jessops for a closer look at these and the other Canon IS bins, big, bright and sharp as expect from Canon better than bino's three times the price AND that was without batteries fitted 'cos the wee girl behind the counter would'nt put them in :roll:

Letter to Santa posted, 'cos selling my arse will take tooooo long.
