    Children, children.
    I have Canon, and Minolta, and Exacta, and Kodak, and Casio, and Sony, and Panasonic.
    Do I have to fight myself?

    Look over my Viewfinder Nature pictures - I thinkyou'll have to agree at web resolution the camera doesn't matter.

    Oh....can't we just all get along?;)
    I've got Panasonic, Canon, Minolta, and Pentax, and at Costco last week, I almost picked up a Nikon D50 just for grins. Does the brand really matter? They all make great cameras, and they all make a few Edsels too. It's the image that matters-especially at web resolutions:D
    However...CANON RULES!!!!!:p

    Actually Ken, the Nikon users drool when they see those pretty white Canon lenses. I also heard a Nikon user I know has nightmares ever since he and I got the same shot but his was BLURRED.....the nightmare was that he gets fired and replaced by a Canon. Funny, a week later his boss bought a Canon :D I haven't seen him since either. :eek:

    Fair maden,

    Because of your true heart you shall be shown mercy when the Nikon Samurai whip up on the Clan O Canon.

    But let this be a warning! All other Canon members shall meet the wrath of Samurai steel! (aluminum, titanium, plastic, whatever) !

    Samurai Master Ken has spoken! Let it be said, and so from the hills it shall ring:

    "The Nikon Lords shall prevail and all those who are not shall suffer from superfluous salivation flow!"

    So it is written, so shall it be done.

    Ah, so.

    <font size=2>I decree:

    On this, the day of our lord the eighth of march, in the year two thousand and six;

    There shall be a contest.

    This contest shall be photographic in nature.

    This contest shall pit the Clan O Canon against the Nikon Samurai and the Sonikanolta Warriors in a fight for dominance in the Viewfinder.

    This contest shall have a theme. The theme shall be decided by all, around ye olde Round Table here.

    The tribal members shall then go and partake of many pictures of this theme, and return not until the mission has deemed complete!

    The tribe with the best pictures shall be deemed Champion! And shall retain rights to gloateth until the next match shall comence! :D

    Now, brethern and sistern, we must decide upon this theme lest another moment pass! Make haste of your minds! And let ye ideas flow as the ale to our cups!

    :D

    Old Japanese Joke:

    One day, an old Japanese man went to the eye doctor. The doctor told him, "you have cataracts". To which the old man said, "no I don't, I drive a Rinken". :D

    Fully armed, ready, and reporting for duty. But when I lay the smack down, can I use my Kiev?

    On the field of battle, and army is nothing without its "Canons." Nikon? Sounds like a shoe.

    Re: Bring out your weapons.
    Sorry chaps but this competition is a non-starter. A couple of weeks ago a program on UK TV, I think it was the gadget show, asked a reputable professional photographer to compare a Nikon 6Mpixel, Fuji 3MPixel and Kodak 3MPixel camera from the photographs taken; same photo in each case.

    To say that he had a tough time comparing the Kodak cheapo <100 v the Nikon expensive 500+ to choose which camera it was is putting in mildly; Well you have to wonder if this is a fair fight. By the way he spotted the Fuji straight off and declared it the worst.

    I guess CANON weren't asked because it would have made it unfair to all other camera makes:D :) :p ;)

    In a test like that The Nikon can not be taken at face value, seeing as how Nikon gets all their sensors from Sony and, cough cough, Kodak.

    I think I will continue using cameras that are made by the same people that make the sensors.

    And I'd like to know what model as well.
