Thanks for the flash advice folks.......having taken on board the comments, I decided the R was worth going for and hunted round the web.
A three hour round tube trip, and I'm now the proud owner of a 'looks like new' 36R for the bargain price of 80.00.....cheaper than a lot of standard 36 models on ebay!

If I get over to the conservatory today I think I'll try RAW + jpeg. I'll be processing in Lightroom 4.1. I haven't seen any need for it so far, except for a couple of difficult shots recently, but I'll take my time and see what happens.

Btw, I told the store I bought the FL36 from that the tightening ring broke, and they offered to refund my money, or look for a replacement; so I asked for a replacement. Henrys.ca in Canada, best I've used on the web, 90 day warranty on everything used.

All hiding!!

Nice shots above Denny....what was the focal length/aperture on the butterfly image?....it throws the focus out on the girl just the right amount. Smile

Good to hear you've found a friendly camera store, sounds like good service.

Busy buying things. The Oly 60mm macro should be winging its way to me shortly. Really looking forward to using this lens. Smile

I was over at the Conservatory today, and I forgot all about shooting RAW. Next time.

I thought you were going to say you forgot to put in your memory card! Grin

I thought you shot JPEG all the time, Denny?

I do, but I made a comment last night on here, more or less to myself,Tongue that I was going to try RAW + jpeg. I want to see if I can draw more detail out in some areas I haven't been quite so satisfied with, my fault, of course.
