    I would like the patience and care to capture the image in my head!

    When are they going to introduce voice operated commands into cameras.
    It's already here - like the Samsung Galaxy Camera, for example (an Android phone with a conventional compact camera zoom lens); you can verbally order it to zoom in and out and shoot

    Can't afford the replacement though.
    Hang onto it and ask Santa for whatever you want to replace it with.

    I always liked your Burghley Snow picci
    .

    I also liked the original of the punts HERE

    There's also a nice one with the river mist.

    I'd like a Leica M8 with a Leica Elmarit 28mm f2.8 ASPH (6-Bit) and a UV filter.

    I'd be satisfied with a pre-loved camera body in excellent condition though I'd really, really like a brand new lens and filter. I know I'm gonna be disappointed, well maybe this year anyway.

    What is anyone else hoping they might find in their Xmas stocking?

    Brilliant, go for it Graham and John.

    Just be sure you can duck, dive and run very fast otherwise you might be beaten to a pulp by several heavy white lenses, a couple of ladders and half a dozen heavy tripods.

    I'd hope to enjoy both the camera and the images. Most of all I'd enjoy the challenge of learning to use it, never having used a rangefinder before. The choice of lens is because it's lightweight and an ideal general purpose lens which is reasonably priced for starting out and learning to use the camera.

    What I'd eventually hope to achieve would be the sort of artistic imagery similar to the sort of thing JW did with his Noctilux f1 ... but that's way out of my reach, just another dream.

    I could understand it if you went for "Seven-of Nine", but this is simply incomprehensible...

    Oh well, it takes all tastes.........

    Knowing my luck the Christmas Fairy would get the spelling wrong!

    If I'm going to be a little more ambitious I could wish for an Olympus XZ-2 compact or really push the boat out and hope for an Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 for my E-M5 but that's entering the realms of pure fantasy - might as well wish for a hot and steamy date with Kim Kardashian!

    It's Christmas, John - the silly season, the time for fantasies and greed. Santa's magic with a huge sack so ask him for everything and tell him you won't believe in him anymore if he doesn't bring what you want.

    I'm thinking of asking him for a new vehicle for myself too. Something like a Landrover Discovery with a personal chauffeur and another nice young man to carry my kit (and maybe me too) if and when we trek across marshes and muddy, uneven countryside.

    I may as well shove a Noctilux f1 onto my list too.
