I have secured and allocated funds for a lens to extend the life of my current camera for years to come. Also, I shall be increasing the range that I can photograph at to 300 mm. This will open up new spots so I can get new angles on aircraft, get better closeups of portions of the aircraft, help reduce poor lighting in long range 200 mm. shots, and possibly provide a better quality photo than the current one (It’s 9 years old now).
This also means no replacement camera for at least a couple more years.
Waiting for an exceptionally good deal to pass along. If one doesn’t come soon, I’ll go ahead and get it at the normal/expected $.
