  • I'm not missing anything about current events. Nor do I underestimate the importance of them. But critically, nor do I extrapolate what isn't there. So how many Jews do you know aside from the ones ...
  • How many times...of course, it is an opinion. A well founded one but still an opinion! I have a PhD in History so I don't need to check it. Once upon a time the British wanted to rule the world, ...
  • The last time I looked, Canon had around 40% of the photographic market share. My own view, for what it's worth is that they retain that position, precisely because they are cautious and stick to ...
  • There is nothing wrong with the word Jew. I am a Jew, and I am happy to call myself a Jew. However, to be glanced at and hear a whisper "he's a Jew," as if I am a contagion, is not especially ...
  • Yes. And? When you have a better understanding of the Jewish community than I do, maybe I'll defer to your opinion. So lets be serious here. Do you really think that the entire Muslim population of ...
  • I never said it was happening. So there isn't anything to prove one way or the other. A combination of extreme Islamists and fearmongering by the right wing press, who sees every Muslim as a ...
  • I don't need to dig out any evidence, I'm Jewish and until very recently lived in North London. The tolerance levels toward Islam, never especially high, are now at their lowest ebb. Even I, a ...
  • Good image at that ISO MAC, but very noisy at 7X5 on my screen, I would quibble with what you might use that for at 10X8? The 7D2 is not a high MP camera. Not that it has to be, but it isn't.
  • Knowing what I know about the Jewish community in North London, I think I can vouchsafe that the response would be as I said.
  • What all of them? That was a rapid conversion... What would they have done shooting with manual focus and film....If they are that desperate for x amount of stops IS they need to spend a bit more ...
  • Replied in Wrap yourself...
    ...in Islamic insignia and take a trot around Stamford Hill or Golders Green. You would most likely end up with a similar outcome. Cheese would be rather nice.
  • I'm sure that is so. I don't think I suggested otherwise. If that is so, it makes their electorate especially unsophisticated, which i don't think is so. There are a lot of disaffected Tories, but ...
  • I think most people are a little bit wary of UKIP, not because they have any chance of winning power, but because a small share of the vote from a volatile electorate will permit them a say in a ...
  • Replied in Great post...
    I wouldn't disagree with that. Agree with that to. I wonder if those who are using camera phones would have been DSLR/ILC buyers anyway. Maybe it's just more people taking pictures because the ...
  • No, but it doesn't allow me to do some of the things I want. Neither does a 7D2 come to that.
  • Maybe. If you think the niche market of birders and sports shooters constitutes all people, then I'll just have to, as you suggest, get over it!
  • Thanks, I'll remember to call when I need someone to think for me! ;)
  • Which one. Nothing I wrote compares with that! As for WTF...
  • I'm aware of that, it depends in what you are focusing on. It's just an option among many. I'm not religiously attached to a particular brands. I'm not on a hurry either.
