It's just like saying elbow or forehead IMO. Nothing rude
Displaying your scrotum in public might be a bit ruder though than revealing your forehead.

We provide you with actual facts and information instead of mere rumours and you are complaining?

hahaha, reality is it should be "you are so Parisian" because the rest of France is very different LOL ( Not a knock at you just an observation from someone who actually loves Paris - and France)

I'm a former "Okie" ... not a "New Yorkie"

Bonjour,

Same difference as above ... I lived in Paris over 7 years and it's an international "big-city" environment ... as opposed to my Poitiers which is barely over 100,000. Ultra-urban vs. relatively rural ...

Just like when I lived in OK, you could pick out a New Yorker, etc. by accent and "attitude" in a millisecond ... same is true in France between the various regions ... but in the long-run, people are people IMHO.

A+, John

ok, so its pretty much the same as knowing in an instant someone from manila, when you are in the provinces. or here in the states, someone from atlanta, in a rural area. I just wondered if the french generally regard parisians differently than other french because of the very different lifestyle. big city folks tend to think their city is the country, (manila folks are a good example) and forget there is something outside of that. it often breeds a kind of 'disgust' from the fine folks outside the big city.

Wow, given Poitiers' place in world history, I had always assumed it was much larger.

Pentax doesn't still make those lenses. If you want APS-C equivalents I would suggest you probably actually want an FF camera. Faster lenses are more expensive, or conversely, thin DOF is cheaper in a larger format. Buy cameras less often, and afford a lens every year instead of every ten years.
But that's the thing with this digital age.
With film the advances in the camera weren't that much and you don't see it back in image quality because you replace the film, with digital the quality of the image is connect with the body.

Now we replace the camera, what is it every 3 to 4 years, so if you can save $1000 on the body then that is a lot, a lot more if you save $1000 on a lens over time.
Systems these day need to be based around the lens and not around the camera.
