    ....and they also still dig the Totally Digital D60!

    I went to the LPGA tournament today and took a few pics which you can
    see here:

    I was armed with both the 20D and the D60. I used the new Canon 24-105
    IS lens as well as the Super 70-200 f/2.8L. As you can tell from the
    photos, the girls all love the great Canon gear .... or maybe it's just

    The best thing about today was that I didn't see one Nikon camera. All
    Canon gear on the course today. A couple of pros were packin the
    1DMKII with the 400 f/2.8L IS.
    But most of us amateurs shoot with less expensive gear. I met a girl
    who had just picked up a used 10D with a Tamron (gag!) lens. Another
    girl I see there every year shoots with a basic Canon 300D (I think
    that's the model # anyway). She's kind of butch, if you know what I
    mean, and today she had her girlfriend with her. Instead of using a
    monopod like me, she'd just balance her camera on her girlfriend's
    shoulder, which she called her "Bi-Pod."
    I got a good laugh out of that one.

    You must be new here...

    Actually, Bret manages to take some very decent pictures in spurts and runs
    (Hmmm...that wasn't meant to imply anything requiring Pepto...). ...It's
    just that he never resists the temptation to shoot pictures of pretty
    girls...whether it's a nice "photograph" or not. I like pretty girls
    too...but if I stood around taking their picture all day long, my wife might
    not let me shell out for that next photographic expense. :)

    I don't agree...some of the photos were extremely candid plus he had great
    interaction with the subject. When was the last time you saw a pro sports
    figure smile for the camera?
