    Bring out your weapons.

    I have seen you ralley in the countryside.

    I have seen your crests riding in the breeze.

    For a millenia now have you gathered in the valley,

    Awaiting your call to serve.

    I awaken you!

    Nikon Samurai!

    Clan O Canon!

    Sonikanolta Warriors!


    It is time to rise! The time has come to raise your flags and advance to the battlefield!

    For now is the time for bat-tle!

    Let you come to this, the Round Table, and decide what rules of contest for ye first Photographyreview Battle of the Clans!

    Speak now! For the winds of war are blowing.

    And aye, it is a mighty smell.

    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
    However...CANON RULES!!!!!

    Re: Bring out your weapons.

    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 I haven't seen him since either.

    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) !

    Re: Bring out your weapons.

    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.

    Re: Bring out your weapons.

    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!

    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!

    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".

    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.
