That would seem to correlate with the whole "one for color, one for black-and-white" idea...

You are evil. I'm curious; why does anyone need two 5D's at a zoo? OK I can understand a pro shooting a wedding, or an NFL sideline photographer, but a zoo?!
IF a Canon 5D hold the mirror, he has another back-up. He he he

Yup. It was probably Mr. Rockwell. We're probably going to see an "in-depth" review of this mystical camera on his blog in a few days saying how much better it is than the 5D then bash it because of all the cool features it has. >:P

Perfect, Just perfect. I'll have to remember that one.....Well done.

Just remember next time that the * (DA*) stands for the special internal element that when activated by the Fn button on the back turns on the 3x +/- TC and the lens stays at f2.8 but with one push = 16.7mm-45mm (-3x) or 2 pushes = 150mm x 405mm (+3x). So you save a fortune in lenses with zero added distortion.

Maybe, just maybe that Pentax needs to advertise or something. You know, ads and things.

I also told him that the sensor size was somewhere between FF and MF,
It occurred to me. If he doesn't know who Pentax is, I'd honestly expect him to have no idea what medium format is.

Two Canons - one with a big, fat lens and one with a long, skinny lens.

(Thinks it over for a moment.)

I think I'd better stop here .....
