What should the next poll be?

Of course you can all vote, but some of the references may only make sense if you've been hanging around Olympus Talk Forum for a number of years.

...the "Physics, faux-physics, equivalence, and quantum efficiency" option.  Maybe the next poll can be who was surprised by that?

Anyone looking to buy a backup record player?
1

I love LPs.  With an old analog amp and good speakers, the sound to me better than from my smartphone and good earbuds.

Sure I could buy a new "state-of -the art" receiver and CDs (I read that they will be gone in 10 years like DSLRs), but I am heavily invested in my current format and still very much enjoy it.

The question, how many people have a backup?

I have an LP turntable, as well as three working reel to reel tape decks.  The backup is in good shape.

It is that easy, and yes the hokey pokey is what it is all about.

What should we have for dinner this evening?

Timely, topical, and something everyone has some control over (compare this to topic to any discussion of FT or E-7)

Poll dancing?

I'd much rather watch it than do it. (get that unpleasant mental image out of your mind, if you can)

1 and 2 will be answered in about three months, one way or another. My gut feel, is, all the people who dumped their HG and SHG glass cheap won't be feeling nearly as as smug as those of us who bought those lenses at great prices.

DPR is biased against (insert your preferred brand). Standard thread that gets started every time a review is published. They didn't have a lot good to say about 4/3, but they've been very generous about a few M43 cameras. And they may have had a point - 4/3  has a much narrower appeal than the smaller M43.

Still, I remember the classic line well known to any long time forum member: a solution looking for a problem. Talk about hoof in mouth disease...

Why make a FF camera? C/N/S already make them, Pentax is about to join because they don't have much choice, and it would mean a whole new lens line, just as sensor tech is negating many of the advantages of a larger sensor. Can't cost justify that one.

It would be nice just to have a lens roadmap... a current one. Pity about the 100 2.8, that would have been superb.

The Heisenberg uncertainty principle prevents me from having a concrete position on quantum physics.

Eggs, definitely. I never cared for hard crunchy things early in the morning - don't want to start the day with food that fights back.
