    What are the different "generations" of F-mount that determine this stuff?
    The D200/300 can meter older AI-S lenses. I don't know much more about it.

    definitely will upgrade when the funding permits. my car got broken into on Saturday and about $700 worth of stuff got stolen plus the body damage and the driver side window got smashed.
    Insurance is not covering the theft and only the damage so i'm not a happy camper!

Even the guys down at the Canon/Nikon shoppe were a little startled to see such attention to ergonomic detail.

    As I compare the Minolta Maxxum 9000 with its BP90 and MD90 power drive stack ... and then see the A700 w/ the VG-C70AM ... the improvements in just the grip, alone, are awesome.
    It's funny to get reactions in the camera shop. Most of them are Canon/Nikon owners, but all kinda say "Wow, A300, thats a very cool camera." When I was in Wolf today a guy was in there getting mad at one of the photo processing machines, but he was yakking with the clerk about cameras, and was talking about how cool the Sony's were. I don't know if he noticed I was fondling an A700, or he just said it out of the blue.

    Gosh, that sucks. It is such a pain to deal with a car that has been broken into, even without considering the loss of $700 worth of stuff.

    Red face The tide shifts ...

    Off topic, of course, but as Sean can tell you ... security in today's economy is becoming more of an issue than ever before. People are becoming jobless, making the prior jobless even more desperate. There is not enough "easy to purloin" stuff, any more ... it already got purloined. I suspect home invasion to go up, too. I can only hope that people arm accordingly and deal out some "in-the-home" justice. That may ease the pain of just going on, also.

    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.

    You may walk in a portrait-orientation, but if uninvited, you're leaving in a landscape version. That's the way we roll, in America.

    We have a few more "happy folks" to deal with here ... sometimes you just need to remind them WHERE the line is, when they forget. Gated communities are not the way we should roll ... that is for Las Vegas.

    Lets all take a deep breath before the thread gets locked down, we can share 'hardline' opinions or other views in emails. We are about one click from turning this good thread into a political, social, geo centric stew. All I will say is as with anything else, a multi tiered approach / response is required, Think, use common sense, safety, security, defense, offense. the other guy will always make the choice ast to what my next response will be.
