Since I have a 1.5 crop factor, does that mean that I am 1.5 times lesser the photag than a fututre Pentax FF user ... or vice versa ?!


It will make you 1.5 times worse.

Good point.
Even that isn't too worrisome, but if he starts arguing with himself we may need to intervene.


But.


Talking with myself is sometimes the only intelligent conversation I can find.


And I always win the arguments with myself.

Much better than mozzarella on pizza, or you name it.
QuoteOriginally posted by FantasticMrFox Quote
I hope that by Mozzarella you mean this genuine Italian thing, not the pale grated stuff you find on the average ready meal pizza
Since Robert is saying Provel (a 'processed' cheese, and first cousin to Velveeta by way of Frankenstein's laboratory and dairy) is much BETTER than mozzarella, I hope he DOESN'T mean the genuine article, lest he call down the wrath of the Cheese Gods.

There are very few problems in life that cannot be resolved by enough money or a large hammer.


When I was still making a living as a wrench I never failed to encounter the numerous hacks that called themselves mechanics. Every drawer of their toolboxes was filled with hammers.


Yes, many of those 'hammers' looked like a combination wrench or a socket and ratchet, but they were all hammers.


Big ones.


Small ones.


Medium ones.


Hammers all.

The little fink! Anyway, that recording will never stand up in court.

Your Honor, I think he misunderstood what I said. I didn't say "I actually like Velveeta, but I'll deny it if you post that". What I said was "I can't deny that Velveeta actually tastes like a post".
Otis said you would give yourself away. Otis.....damn smart squirrel....always right! Well......maybe he misses the weather forecast a little?

I'm on my 5th body in the last 8 years. Several lenses have come and gone. Currently I have a 15, 21, 31, 40, and 70 Ltd. All of them relatively new, except the 40. I've had it 8 years and will likely never part with it. I've had the 70 Ltd over a year and, other than test shots, used it once.
The 40 ltd and XS lenses, in my not so humble opinion, are the jewels in the Pentax crown.
(The 15 and 21 are tied for second)


I picked up a Sigma 28mm FF from our displaced Oklahoman Shirley a while back. It has been on my K5IIs almost continuously since it arrived.


Yeah, I know, somewhere in my dark and grumpy past I may have boasted that Sigma had lost me, but this nice little gem was available for a price I couldn't pass up.


And it is a very nice lens!

It's probably right-side-up when viewed from China, since they are on the other side of the planet....


Then how do you 'splain my Cambo? It came from the Netherlands.


The 'Top of the World' from the perspective of some.

Three copies of separation papers to sign (sombody has clearly missed the premise here. )


Or, it could be:


QuoteQuote:
It's the night before the night before Christmas
Old friends together the same time every year
She's leaving him, but he doesn't know it
To everyone else it's perfectly clear

Their holiday party has secrets in the air
Something that he doesn't share
She's found another
She's movin' on
The day after New Years she'll be gone

The guests are uneasy; they don't know how to act
Should they tell him or keep it hushed?
Take a drink and a snack
Talking behind his back
Soon everyone's getting lushed

It's the night before the night before Christmas
Old friends together the same time every year
She's leaving him but he doesn't know it
To everyone else it's perfectly clear

She said, "Promise you won't spend a lot on my present
Just give me something small
A little reminder is more than enough
It's the thought that counts after all"

The gift that she's giving, he can't foresee
a gift that begins with a "D"
When he gets the papers
Things will look grim
Why ruin Christmas for him?

It's the night before the night before Christmas
One year later, together as friends
They moved apart but the party's still going
A holiday spirit that never will end

Boudreaux's is awesome, but it will stain cloth diapers.
