News and Rumors Poll

Question is: How many separate threads are needed for the new, unknown camera?
(Please understand that this tongue-in-cheek and posted with humor as the intended result.)

Translation from my native language,
"The more you brush the gossip the better it will be"

So, bring it on!

May as well have em broken up a bit, I say, so there aren't too many conversations overlapping in any one thread. It's not like there isn't sufficient interest in this.

Keep it in "the original and best" so that the thread can break some records the seperate ones are just duplicating whats already in the original and since the topic is exactly the same why discuss it in many threads, that would be like having 5 threads discussing the optical quality of the same lens

As many as needed

I say as many as are needed to take the News and/or Rumor to the sublimely detailed heights (depths?) always expected of PF threads


Maybe one per issue:
  • Is that a mouse?
  • Is that a Mode Dial Lock Button?
  • Is that a body break where the pop-up flash should be?
  • Is that a new Patent Drawing?
  • Is that a focus asist light or a movie microphone?
  • Is that a blue/blank/front/back button? (For What?)
  • Is that 1 or 2 edials?
  • Is that a larger prism hump, or perspective?
  • Is that a shallower shape or perspective?
  • Is that a different grip?
  • Is that a different strap lug?
  • Is that a DA35?
  • Is that a tease (or good marketing)?
  • Is that a valid post on Rice High's Blog (I don't know - on my Ignore List)
That's more than 5. Add your own.
  • Is that a different symbol on the Mode dial (movie????????)

Lets keep it to things that there could be some actual debate about. The answer to that one is a given!

Threads are like lenses. You always need one more!

We can all agree nobody can stop anybody from getting their three and a half seconds of fame. Let them start their own threads; they'll go down by themselves.

You're the best example except that you get only 2 seconds of fame. You'll get the whole 3,5 after you'll pass your 5000 useless post. Hmm, not much longer I think!
