I just left Wally World with 3 seasons worth of X-Files, a 12-pack of Pabst, and a grocery bag full of bacon jerky and cheeze snacks.
Any ammo? 12 gauge slugs are cheap right now. Good medicine for zombies!

Why do some people here have such a bad attitude about Ricoh?
Because Ricoh is known as a copier company... I would never want to own a DSLR that was made by Xerox.

Why not? If it was a solid camera that got the job done and done well then what does it matter what company name is on it?

At some homes even discussion of certain topics is taboo.

Thats it, I have had it. I refuse to be sucked in by the live hociR! I just left Wally World with 3 seasons worth of X-Files, a 12-pack of Pabst, and a grocery bag full of bacon jerky and cheeze snacks. I am ignoring the worldl for awhile (or maybe the world will be ignoring me!)

By tomorrow sometime I will either be cured or at least smell like it.

Actually, there are some links on that page that are clearly in both, NSFW & NSFH. I.E. pics of someone's "junk" getting measured among other things.

...or Canon.

They do make decent scanners, though.

Yep, when I go to photocopy something and have to get near a "nonaC", I always put on my elbow-high rubber gloves ... and Minion goggles, too.

My co-workers think nothing of this ... they are used to me (now) ...

Another reason not to get a K-3 ... impossible OVF view through the mask goggles ... and the live view ain't great either.

It's actually quite good.
