  2. Why to do you care Rich, since you don't own a dSLR of any kind?

    Don't know about the 30D but my 5D is a great camera and performs

    I suspect most of the people who have problems with Cameras and Lenses
    just don't know how to use much more than a throwaway camera anyway or
    just like to whine for the sake of whining rather than mastering the
    art of photography.

    Aren't overly large cameras a bit like flashy powerful cars? - a subliminal
    compensation for a small penis?

    Get yourself a Pentax, and discover truly masculine photography.

    Comparing the size of penises, cars and cameras only matters to those who
    don't use them...

    Well, maybe I do?
    The 5D seems to be a particularly flawless example of Canon product.
    No...I think the thread pointed out they weren't all cranks and that
    there are problems. Read it again, with the attachments.

    Not with a plastic body you won't. I think Pentax's flagship digital
    has a metal body, but it's hard to tell the three of them apart.

    You mean the part where the OP said, "I did. I reread it. I'm bad with
    comprehension. I get it now. I think once you use the multi-controller, it
    stays on that focus point, so yes, it was not random. This is one of those
    times where technology gets in the way (for me). Now that I know, I know to
    press the [+] right-thumb button after doing a selective AF point with the
    multi-controller. I wish the viewfinder display wouldn't sleep so fast
    That looks like inexperience to me, doesn't it to you?
    Non of the replies to that thread indicate any problems with the camera
    other than a lack of knowledge on the part of the operator. And I read every
    one up to 2 hours ago.
    Rich, you are getting as bad as Preddy...if not worse.

    Only a Canon fanatic would relate a problem with a camera to
    equivalency with a car accident!!!

    If there is one thing that Pentax owners know how to do, it's use their

    Small, but perfectly the saying goes

    Actually, camera ownership does rather mirror life; we have Canon owners -
    well, they're the giggling slappers putting themselves about on a Friday
    night, anyone's for a few extra buttons and a pretty box. Nikon owners are
    a good deal more thuggish - shaven headed oiks with 'NIKON' tattooed across
    their knuckles whom decent people cross the road to avoid.

    The Bronica and Leica crowd are timid aesthetes with delicate sensibilities
    and even more delicate lenses, who rarely venture out amongst the seething
    masses, lest they contract a dreaded working class disease and die within a

    Pentax owners, on the other hand, are the honest backbone of camera owners -
    neither pretentious, nor flighty, nor unpleasantly aggressive, their solid
    no-nonsense respectability and tireless dedication to their craft is the
    rock upon which photography is built.

  12. Rich does this when he can't get to his dominatrix or can't pay her,
    so others will kick him around a bit.

    If you don't pay your dominatrix does she kick the shit out of you or be
    very nice to you? ;oP

  17. Well, you said it.
    previously posted stuff snipped....
    Then why do some of them post so unpleasantly to usenet?

    I hope I detect humor in this post. To continue the idea, though, Pentax MF
    users, the guys who are REALLY serious about what they do, fit in the the
    niche filled in the real world by the guys who lift weights on Malibu

    If that's the problem, I can put him in touch with one or two that I've
    photographed. I'll even pony up the difference between the pittance he
    usually pays and what these charge...
