the agony aunt column

Post by andygolfer » Tue Jul 14, 2015 7:59 am

Dear Dierdre,
I am feeling rather embarrassed this morning. Until yesterday I believed mine was a reasonable size and possibly even above the average but after seeing other men’s at Lakenheath, I’ve decided mine is quite small and I am worried about it because I went home feeling inadequate. Even the bit on the end which is sometimes removed was quite small compared to many of the others I saw. My wife always says it is quite large and bigger than I really need.

Should I be worried and what can I do about it please

By the way , in case you are confused I’m talking about my camera lens

Dear A of Essex after seeing your equipment in action all I can advise it's not how big but what you do with it, even if mine is bigger ;)

P of Ulster
C&C always welcome

Just remember that contrary to some behaviour, you should always keep it covered when not in use but uncapped when in use. This will assist in correct and full exposure.

Hope this helps......................................................................... :clap:
