The photos from the trip are really wonderful. I had taken all the camera bodies and lenses and synchronized the optics for maximal sharpness at each and any setting. It made a word of difference in the technical quality of the photos. There were many beautiful settings and historic ones as well. The external hotshoe flash was invaluable on sunny shadowy days for fill flash, esp in the tiny streets through many of the small towns. Will get these shots up as soon as I submit them to Getty Images.
