My 'Favourites'

And what's up with the macho language like "shoot" and "glass." "I shoot a D700" ??

My 'favourites' are:

1) "Pull the trigger" - I can't wait to "pull the trigger" on the new xyz. Wow. Gosh. You're not just some unknown photographer, you're like, a hit-man or or maybe one of those elite special forces guys or something. So much more dangerous and cool than the average schmoe. Real men don't just 'buy', they "pull the trigger".

2) "Deal breaker" - The absence of feature x was a "deal breaker" for me. Sheesh. Most of us just go to the camera store and buy a camera, or don't buy it. But up there in the stratosphere with the short-handful of other Important People, you "do deals". You don't simply pay the list price or wait for bargains, you negotiate directly with the camera company on terms that work solely to your advantage. The camera company respects you and scrambles to meet your terms, but you accept no compromises. No doubt on those rare occasions a piece of tech meets your extraordinary standards, you accomplish the "deal" by "pulling the trigger".
