I shot it with my 60-250, and my buddy Paul was beside me saying 'Norm, he's snarling at us, we need to back up a bit," but it looked like the bear had some food there, and there was another bear in the area. If he comes after me, the other bear eats his lunch. I was safe.

In other words I had a death wish, these days I'd take my A-400 and things would be better.

Hi Pentaxdude,

I've been away so very late to the game in this thread.

My thought is this: screw those customers!

Not the easiest to accept in a down economy, but if you have potential clients who are making their decisions based on what type of camera you have, I would be very wary of what type of client they'd be (ie. clueless and nit picky about everything because they don't know any better).

It's not easy to turn down a client and potential $$, but I know for my little business (video transfers), I stopped catering to that type of client.

Have I lost business?

Definitely.

Do I have less stress and end up working with clients who understand and appreciate my work?

Most definitely.

I would, in all seriousness, print a Pentax label and put it over top of the Ricoh spot.

Use it as in ice breaker - potential clients will no doubt ask with the label represents. That's an opportunity to be humorous over it and say that some clients scoff at the fact you don't use Canon or Nikon which is silly because it's the photographer, not the camera.

No kidding, I think it'd be great. Plus it would also show your confidence in who you are as well as in the equipment.

Best of luck,
Keebler

We need to get an environmental/evolutionary anthropologist on here to analyze this thread. I need insight. How does this thread improve our chances for survival? Why have people who participate in threads like this survived through generations of evolution. What's the biological advantage? Enquiring minds want to know.

Cheese = stress relief = mobetta = more Zygotes?

Probably less heart disease due to considerably lower stress levels compared to those who only participate in the "Pentax is doomed!" or "FF is better because..." or (God forbid) "the K-01 should have been..." threads.

Possibly even enough to offset the effects of all that cheese...

I reiterate:


What an awesome reiteration... I'm truly inspired. I wonder if you can get the local beer store to order some of that in for me. Who wants Canon or Nikon beer so we can compare?

No way! It would probably be overpriced for the features, and the glass wouldn't as good as the Asahi.

Rumour has it that the next Pentax will not be FF or even MF but bigger, much bigger:

Since this is a family website I can't really say what one gets more of and what it is better than.

But "it" eventually leads to evolution of the species, so this thread is a positive social mutation.

More to the point, I think I'm persuaded that Tony didn't survive the Sopranos finale, Meadow did, and Carm and AJ may or may not have.

There's quite a bit of scholarship on the matter. And names matter.
