    It is marketing input to say "Include that" whether or not a marketing
    person actually types it.[/QUOTE]

    Huh? How is that even relevant. This is the claim that started it all:

    PeterN <>

    in many organizations even the owners manual has to be passed
    through marketing. Showing all of the super features

    Whether or not a text is "marketing input" (whatever that is supposed to
    mean) is not the question, it is whether the owner's manual has been
    passed through the marketing department.
    Indeed. Marketing is not an "involved" department.

    Ordinary, necessary and reasonable. Meet that test and you have the

    limits and statutory documentation.)

    Depreciation and amortization are a means of allocating the cost of an
    asset over its useful life. the tax code contains incentives to
    stimulate economic growth and repay political favors. therefor, tax
    depreciation is often shorter than book depreciation. To complicate
    things, State tax depreciation rates do not always conform to the
    Federal rates.

    Now can we please get back to photography.

    Isn't that one of the main selling points for the 4/3 system?

    The two of us as hobbyist amateur photographers don't have the
    privilege to "depreciate" our camera equipment the way pros can. Makes
    me think I should incorporate as "Savageduck Studios" and start dealing
    with the material assets and running expenses such as travel &
    subsistence, to, from, & at locations, CC rental etc..

    It certainly should be, yes.

    I'm not hung up on it all. This was all part of demonstrating that
    manuals contain advertising / marketing materials from the company
    making the product.

    Nikon would be neglectful not to!

    Interchangeability yes - but I doubt each manufacturer of bodies touts
    the others lenses too hard.


    QUOTES follow:
    If any accessories are lost, customers in the USA and Puerto Rico should
    contact Panasonic’s parts department at 1-800-833-9626.

    Beginning around p. 196 they mention all sorts of Panasonic accessories
    and a few Panasonic lenses - no mention of another manufacturer.

    Beside: "Mount" they list: "“Micro Four Thirds Mount”
    with no suggestion that any other co. makes them.

    In the fine print at the end of the manual where all the various trade
    marks and so on are listed there is: "Micro Four Thirds™ and Micro Four
    Thirds Logo marks are trademarks or registered trademarks of Olympus
    Imaging Corporation, in Japan, the United States, the European Union and
    other countries"

    But no suggestion of lenses from Olympus (or anyone else) in the manual.

    I don't know about CA but in QC one would have to show a going concern
    with at least two clients before depreciating gear and expensing T&L and
    so on for income tax purposes; as well as invoices to reduce VAT
    payments against expense VAT paid.

    Perhaps Wolfie's Swedish cousin?

    It seems we have several vortices in the photo NGs ready to suck in the
    unwary and spin them down to unrecoverable depths.

    Hey! Just a preposterous, tongue-in-cheek brain fart to bring things
    back to photography as Peter suggested.

    That's weird, you seem to just hitting wildly in the air now. Who am I
    supposedly trolling? For what purpose?

    I haven't been rude, or insulting. I have substantiated everything
    I've said and been consistent and reasonable.

    You, on the other hand, have been nothing of the kind. And yet I am
    the supposed troll?

    That's just weird...

    I had a similar inkling.
    There have been a couple similarly behaved posters in some non photo
    NG's as well of late.

    I believe I know of whom you speak. A certain Antipodal resident, and a
