    Well, it doesīnt look as pristine anymore, the pic was taken 7 years ago so it has got a lot of use and wear marks since, but it still works as good as new.

    Experts: help me please.

    But itīs made of carbon fibre, so it hardly weights anything.

    My camera is a Canon 1D mk111 with a Canon zoom lens 100-400mm EF 1 - 4.5-5.6.

    When gold was at it's highest price, I sold off many of the items I never wear from my jewellery box, and bought the camera and lens as slightly used.

    Looking at your photograph I'd say that was a good move!
