That would be even better. Any idea where to get it? I searched Google and all I found was a partial Perl script.

hi paul-

thanks for the link to exifstat. i'm not a fan of command line programs (ah, the good old days of MS-DOS 3), but i'll give it a try this weekend.

I'm pleased that I'm not stuck at one end of the zoom range. 55% of my shots were between the limits. I'm also surprised at how much use I made of the wide end of the range... that's completely unexpected. All in all, I think I made the right decision with the 28-70 for event photography, and it's more than paid for itself in a short period of time.

Damn you, Paul!! After posting this message, I now have come to the conclusion that I need a honking big 500mm 'cause almost all my outdoor shots are at the 280 mark!! *LOL*

Seriously, thanks for this, it certainly shows me how I'm shooting. I'm using the 17mm of my 17-55 quite a bit and also the 280 range of my 70-200VR w/1.4 TC, and my usage is fairly spread out in between. Nice to know I'm getting my money's worth out of my lenses

This is very helpful indeed. Cheers, Sandi

Me!!!???? Techy-techno-geek, nawwwww, I just like gadgets! *LOL* I also can organize hundreds of thousands of pics so I can find one in seconds but can't figure out how to keep the top of my desk cleared!! I'm an oxy-moron unto myself, and no wisecracks please....

Yes, MS is my bitter enemy when PC is acting up, but sure do love the diversity of programs... The idea of two computers for those who need Macs makes perfect sense.
