What Did We Do to the Canadians?

Okay, what did we do to tick off you Canadians? It isn't enough to try and freeze us out in the Winter by sending frigid air South? Now you have to try and smoke us out? :confused2:
Seriously, the fires up there sound pretty serious. Hopefully lives aren't at risk and property damage can be minimized.

I Leica that idea in general, but Leitz* not get too carried away ... also, I heard that the Argentinians were sponsored by a FF mirror-less ...

( * repeat of a "bad" joke; the collective groan may commence now ... )

Nikon stopped at 240z and left the MF market to Pentax (to the chagrin of all Nikon shooters, the 645z is the Nikon that should have been).

Hey now, be nice to my Datsuns!

It's a 10D. State of the art at the time. Long ago in the mists of time.

Never understood why the K100D had iso of 3200 and K10D only had 1600. Any Ideas?? Or is this too on topic and I'm doomed?!?

There is a topic here?

Now for dinner I am preparing the Farmer's Market July dinner. That would be cooked down, fresh green beans with new taters and bacon juice. Out of the can I am making stewed tomatoes southern style. I am saving those locally grown, really ripe ones for my Bologna sammiches.

The K100D was a 6+ megapixel. I suspect with fewer, and larger sensels it had a similar noise profile at 3200 as the K10D at 1600.
Of course the other possibility is that, um, uh, sorry; I got so engrossed in my bacon and lutefisk sammich I forgot what I was going to say.
Oh yeah! The other possibility is that it was the earliest implementation of the plot to overthrow Tokyo.
