    Well, that must be the OTHER $700 billion the Congress parted with! LOL

    My God ... the cost of that production must border on the obscene! What a budget! Thank goodness they know what to do with oil production profits, eh?

    Good catch, faisal!

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
