+1, what sort of alien monstrosity is that?
In Italy (Tuscany) we say "fritta, l' bna anche 'na ciabatta" ("if deep-fried, even slippers taste good"), but on a spit... I'm not sure... :lol:

K110D is ancient... and the K-x is not all that recent either.
Those prices are stupidly high, even for a reputed dealer, with all the things it implies.

Film making a comeback with Millenials - Globe and Mail

It's not a matter of wit... one of the most important characteristics of film is the fact that you never really clip the highlights, instead they get progressively whiter, but with countless shades of white.
If you digitalize that, you have to either compress it in the grays, or lose it.

Macro lens on the cheap

2x Teleconverter with macro helicoid, like the Kenko MC7.
With something like 20€, provided you already have a fast manual fifty (but who doesn't?), you get a 100mm, 1:1 macro lens, with the added bonus that you can still use the TC as a TC.

For reference:

Then the deal was ok, if you factor in the SD and the discount on the lens... but we're still talking about a 12-y.o., 11MP CCD DSLR... that's archaeology in my book.

Kimi's tires were shot, but if he had not been held up by Bottas he would have had much more margin.

Regarding the reversed situation hypothesis: perhaps, but I'm not that sure - though maybe not for the "right" reasons.
If you noticed, Raikkonen braked very hard at the first chicane on lap 1, while he could have gone more to the inside, thus blocking Hamilton and letting his teammate Vettel, who had made a faster start, pass.
Rumors have it that he's leaving Ferrari, so he's not playing nice... maybe if he was staying he would have taken one for the team.

And team orders are just one reason why F1 is boring nowadays. Another is that you can foresee an outcome some 10 laps in advance, like when it was obvious that Hamilton would have catched up and passed Raikkonen.

Or would have tried an impossible - and perhaps completely unnecessary - overtake, and lost their life in the process.
But their attitude and style were grand, not petty.

"Had to" watch the race because I was with friends...
An individual who openly lowers his pace in order to block an opponent at the cost of losing a position himself cannot be defined a "driver" nor a "pilot", IMHO.
He was also dumb enough to admit that in the post-race interview...
Someone from the '80s would have died before committing such a thing.
