You did a great job on those photographs Nicholas! The fact that the guide wires are shown so clearly attests to the fact that the Zeiss lens really gets the job done well! I have loved the 828 since I received mine nearly 1 year ago. I have never really sweated the PF issues, I just learned how to deal with it. It isn't like every picture has purple in it! The greatest thing about the 828 is that you can get alot done with that camera alone! Dslr's have their place also, but I enjoy being unencumbered by a heavy bag full of $$$$$$$$$ lenses!
