    After my bad experience with my old 40D this week, not to mention
    Canon's lousy customer service, I've finally decided to get rid of all
    my digital Canon junk and go back to shooting film exclusively. I
    mean, everybody knows that even the best digital can't compare to some
    good Reala or Velvia.
    And who has the time to download pics and edit them all?
    No more Photoshop! No more worries about which RAW converter is best!
    No more expensive memory cards and readers!
    I'm scrapping all of it.

    No more Totally Digital D60!
    No more 40D without a catchy name!
    No more FAB 5D2!
    I'm even junking the EOS-1V in favor of a shiny new Nikon F6.
    Those "L" lenses? The "L" stands for "Lousy!"
    Gimme that 58mm Noct Nikkor, baby!

    -Annika -----> Totally Analog !!!

    P.S. Noons, I love you and I apologize for any ill-feelings or
    inconveniences I've caused you. I hope we can be best friends.

    That's funny... I just decided to go for a Canon digital kit:
    I *want* my wildlife shots to look like they've been oversharpened by a
    Photoshop beginner and my ultra-wide landscapes to have dark corners and
    a bent, fuzzy look.
    And the aesthetic of frozen action shots with sweat droplets in the air,
    that's what Michelangelo would be doing if he lived today!

    And having to think about exposure, focus and composition....You gotta
    be kidding! I'll leave those things to the rocket scientists.
    24 FPS, that's it man! Spray and pray!!

    Farewell Leicaflex, goodbye Zeiss 35mm f/1.4....

    It's a choice that you seem glad to have made so more power to you! In
    the end it's not the media rather the skill in using that medis that
    counts.

    Some people paint Oils, Others paint watercolors. It is a matter of
    comfort with the media that gives the artist rise to perform.

    To me this is, aside from the Canon flames which I totally disregard,
    is a photographer that seems to be disenchanted with the digital
    workflow.

    That's fine. Personally I enjoy the workflow but then I loved being in
    the darkroom too.

    All of that is moot because it's what goes on in the viewfinder that
    makes the photograph.

    But hey, if you see something else here please enlighten me. I'll
    listen.

    OK, if you insist. I sent you an email last night, since your address looked
    real; but I guess you didn't receive it.

    Bret ("Annika") is an excellent digital photographer who has used Canon
    equipment for years. He'll switch to Nikon when pigs fly. But every year he
    sends an April Fool's message like this, and you fell for it. ;^)

    Let's just say that "Bret ("Annika") is a digital photographer...",
    probably more realistic and certainly less controversial.

    I'm an anglophone and day/month/year has always seemed the most
    logical way of expressing dates. I have never been able to
    understand why you'd put month first.

    Talking about distances, you don't say you drove 50 metres, 26
    kilometres and 44 millimetres.

    Talking about time even, you don't say the time is 53:11:24.

    Keep up, 'merica :)

    Differences in US & UK English usage.
    In my everyday life I *would* have typed 01-04-2011, but to make it
    easier for someone who I assumed was on the other side of the pond to
    understand, I put the month first (especially since he didn't seem to
    pick up hints very quickly).
