I have to get accustomed to the zoom friction ring lol ... its like Canon purposely put in an irritating weird tactile feature for the humour of it, instead of a zoom lock.

It is a VERY STRANGE holdover from the version 1 "one touch" push pull zoom, that makes absolutely no senses on a twist zoom lens. It was required on the push pull.

//still scratching head years later in befuddlement...

And yes, that stupid friction ring! What I’d give for a simple zoom lock switch. It’s the one thing about the lens that still irks me.

What I'D give for the friction ring to be useful,. on a version II push pull one touch zoom :)

In my wildest fantasies!

lol seems like if you get the friction you want - the ring could easily accidentally turn...

I will try to make friends with it and accept it or it will drive me nuts lol

Beautiful grouse shot, Rod! They've gotta be tough to capture!

The best answer would be yes and no. I saw 6 on that walk. They seem to spend a lot of time on the ground. I walked behind the one posted for about five minutes before he went to wing. They tend to fly short distances and that was when the picture was taken. The next two I didn't get a chance to raise the camera before they flew off. The last three stayed around for a while but the mud on the trail wasn't a pleasing back-drop.

At the start of that walk I was advised by another hiker that there had been recent sightings of a bear with two cubs; a young bear estimated at about two years old and a wolf. All of which I'd love to get pictures of but nothing I'd want to bump into on a trail. :-)

Thanks for the response, Rod. It sounds like you live in some beautiful country, with a good deal of wildlife nearby. I'm definitely envious.
