I did have some misgivings when I bought this camera (G9), that I was just spending for the sake of it. However, every few days I discover something new about the camera that makes me love it more. And the image quality of this 14-140 f/3.5-5.6 is great, for a zoom.

Went over to Napier today for lunch - on holiday.

Views from the Gin Trap.

Wondering if white balance is off - especially the first?

Clive - Tsunami Bar or Da Bach. When I first a construction here years ago, it was Friday 13th. That night local youths vandalised and burnt the structure down. It was rebuilt, but has been destroyed in high seas a coupe of times. This is not a patch on the one I saw many years ago.

Itsa screen shot photo. Maybe some techy hear knows how to pass this on to Microsoft for verification or warning their name is being used to support what seems to be a scam. I have tried to find a way to get past their 'product help' but gave up when asked to sign a 5 dollar voucher for help No wonder we go looking for alternatives with better service. I wonder if MS management ever asks themselves if they could do better?
