I borrowed the bargain-price Nikon 80-300 mm lens for the afternoon while I was sitting out in the sun on Putney Common, and took a few shots. It would have been more handy to have around the day before when there was a cricket match on, for some 'action' shots.

I don't often feel the need for a long zoom, which is why I've never bought one. It allows me to take more candid photos from a safer distance (I'm worried about offending people by sticking a lens in their face uninvited, and don't particularly like the posed photos you get when you ask first) but other than that I'm not especially upset about giving it back to its owner!
