No equipment is any good
Jun 14, 2010

No one can take pictures anymore.

I was reading today about a person with a 7D but he cannot buy a lens that works. The 17-55 is not long enough, and the 24-70 does not have stabilization.

And no-one can use a T2i or a 7D because there are too many pixels.

And a T1i and a 50D do not have enough pixels. Or microadjustment.

And a 1Ds -- any model -- weighs too much.

And none of the EF-s lenses fit the EF cameras, so no one can buy an EF-S lens for a EF-S sized camera because they want to upgrade to an EF camera.

And on full frame cameras, the edges are soft on too many lenses wide open.

And flash sync speeds are too slow so you have to use high speed sync but that does not have enough light to overpower the sun.

And apparently Canons autofocus slower than Nikons, so that's no good.

Andwhite lenses attract attention. And black lenses absorb heat.

And you need tiny depth of field, so an f1.2 lens is necessary, but people do not have flat enough faces, so their ears are blurry.

And there's no white balance that let's the camera look out the windows and adjust for daylight while looking inside the room and adjusting for incandescent.

I'm going to sell my cameras if I can find someone silly enough to buy them, and get some paints at the art store.
