  • I loved the Simpsons once and they broke my heart. Season 2-6 is some of the funniest television ever made. By season 11 it had well and truly jumped the shark. If they had any integrity they ...
  • Using extract of Monkey glands for invigorating energy tonics and shots was popular amongst nazi leaders. I don't now if this is related but it's an interesting tid bit and may well be why. More ...
  • Replied in No offense
    I completely agree that money spent by lobbyists/Pentagon/government/military-industrial complex to fund cheerleading for weapons systems is a horrible waste and that purchased influence and ...

  • Maybe your more up to date than I am but I'm fairly sure that the last few GMD intercepts were done using only radars and other sensors that would be used in a real world scenario and that ...
  • It's true that bokeh is the quality of the feel and shape of the out of focus areas but Central to that is the control over the amount and position of those areas. I don't think you can take dof ...
  • That's not quite true, Patriot and aegis SM missiles have intercepted some pretty serious ballistic missiles. Admittedly not full fledged MIRVed ICBM's but they have demonstrated capability ...
  • I completely agree that US infrastructure spending is a fraction of what it should be. I also agree that military aid is a very tricky issue but like I said it only has to stop one small war to ...
  • That's a much broader question since he US already gives many billions in military aid to Isreal (as it does to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and others). It's a lot of money but it gives the US a level of ...
  • This obsession with bokeh is a little mad. I actually find the increased depth of field an advantage and with the fast lenses I can get PLENTY of bokeh when I want it. Worst case scenario I take a ...
  • Thanks for the support! Unfortunately the 14-35mm was sold out from under me. In that case I will definately be keeping my 12-60 though if someone wanted it I would probably still sell my 11-22 ...
  • It is effective within its limited performance envelope. So that means having intercept launch sites in the right place to get he incoming rockets. Because of the very short distances covered it's ...
  • This was the basis for the breakdown of talks in Iceland over the almost compete destruction of US and Soviet nuclear arsenals at the end of the cold war. The only sticking point was star wars, the ...
  • I love these two lenses but I have a small chance to buy a 14-35mm shg before I go away on my first short holiday in years if I can raise some cash.  As such I am selling my two favourite lenses ...
  • The touch screen is nice though I don't use it much when I handed it to my sister who doesn't really use cameras much she was all over it. Another big plus is how easy and useful the wifi is ...
  • Oh dear, sorry about that, I try to remember for these threads but I don't use threaded view so I sometimes forget. Its to old and won't let me even remove it now, perhaps a mod can move out ...
  • With sellers from Australia you should be fairly safe if you use some common sense about what you're looking for in an eBay lot that's an indicator of a genuine seller with good will. Throw in ...
  • Hand held 700% cropped out of camera jpeg under a bright Street lamp on a cloudy night...I love the E-m1. Nothing else would have done this.
  • Unless you are doing very demanding professional work or are planning serious crops in low light I doubt you would find much to complain about using iso3200 all day. Given the abundance of ...
  • I know I'm coming a little late to this discussion but for that price you could very easily get a near new e-m5 and some change. I've seen good examples of the regular body with all the paper work ...
