Yes, no problem at all. EX lenses are pretty tough. This is a crop from the full frame, and of course, the 7Ds have a 1.6 crop, so effectively an 80mm.

My jeans were caked in dried gravy, and it was a hectic job meeting deadline whilst the action was still going on. First time I've covered it, but I'll be back.

Had a thought after commenting, it would take the mother of all Yorkshire puddings to soak up 500 gallon of gravy. Smile

Do you know long has this been going and how far afield do they come from.

11 years now. There were 2 contestants from overseas, New Zealand and Germany.

If you like silly sports, it,'s the World Black Pudding Throwing Championships on 9 September in Ramsbottom, where the puds are used to destroy Yorkshire Puddings.
