    It could be a real lifesaver ... and imagine all the great images your are going to get of all the smiling folk when you whip this puppy out and s-s-s-save the day.

    Is it just me, or does it seem that it is not safe to go much of anywhere, these days? Wow!

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
