About me:

HAVE PurchaseD an IST*Ds and see if my Canon G2 can reach 200,000
shots..(EDIT)...I
don't think so but **EDIT: my Canon G2 did not reach 200K ..it was kind of halted at
about 86K when I got my IST*Ds (in Dec 2004) which went on to about 88K when it
got replaced by my 2nd K200D in Mar 09 :D. Got a Pentax K-r in Dec 2010 and a Pentax Q (w/ Prime and FishEye) in Sept 2011 :) and added the O2 (Wide Angle Zoom) and O6 (Tele Zoom) to the Q, as well as, adding a Ricoh GR IV this past May 31, 2013 and, after thrashing my Q and 06 lens, I know have a Q7 and another 06 lens :D

On Opinion: Bring on the 70-200mm equivalents article (315 comments in total)

So, why all the 70-200 listings but not all the "70-200" equivalents? Kinda put the hands on the football/soccer ball on this one.

On SanDisk unveils 512GB Extreme Pro card article (160 comments in total)
In reply to:

Frank_BR: Strange times we are living. For the price of a single memory card you can buy two Nikon D3000 with the kit lens 18-55mm.

For the price of my two memory cards (256MB + 512 MB) which was $530, albeit back in 2002/3, you could purchase a Q7 dual lens kit :)

On Canon confirms price drop on select EF lenses article (140 comments in total)

FWIW, Canon Canada had a price fluctuation (some up some down) in the beginning of July this year. Mind you, that was for stores and our costs. This "price drop", from Canon USA, may be just for pricing at the Canon (Online) Store.

Walking the walk is one thing but, IMVHO, talking the talk is a wee bit more important ;)

I can't believe so many people have no problem putting in such large files (1600 x) don't they realise that there are C&P'ers out there? :o
