    Re: A female samurai? I don't think so...

    Why yes I think I would like that honor. That would be cool!

    BTW almo was mistaken. I have a Nikon FG-20., not a FM-2a

    Re: Here's an Idea...

    How about we all just sit in our living rooms, connect our computers together using a long string of telephone wires and Gather that way?

    We could all even wear the same t-shirt

    Re: Would Nikon Samurai # 5 Please Step Forward

    I say seriously let's start working on a Nikon Samurai t-shirt design. Maybe we can even convince photo-john to let us use the PR logo on part of it. To signify our loyalty to the clan.

    Nat, you're the most creative among us. Samurai Creativai, I hereby dub you "Creator of the T-shirt."

    I'll touch my samurai sword to your shoulders when I see you next

    Now I'll go practice my naginata(google it) and sharpen my weapons for the next time I see you..... ;)

    Personally, I prefer Tae Kwon Do Moo Du Kwan USA. Been studying that for more than two and a half years. After this much time, nicknames have been given out. Sensei is "The Short Guy". Ken is "Cinder Block". They call me "Tigger" (I'm known for my jumping kicks). And they call the lovely Dawn "The Queen Of Pain". She loves self-defense techniques, and is VERY GOOD at them.

    Well... an M5 is a rangefinder, not an SLR... What were you doing with that and how did you put a 600 f4 on it?

    YES, you are correct

    I dated an ELITELY rich girl who's father was a LEICA/CANON guy (amoung others). He used to give me his camera and tell me to take images of him racing his indy type car, flying his plane or go to car shows and take images of antique cars for him. The leica was a pain, but the canon had a good meter and AF ;)

    I had to leave her because of her cheating ways, but DAMB I wish I hadn't left the father's money ;)

    Actually, it's a purple belt. Red belt (second kyu) comes in April. Our red belt is the equivalent to brown belt in other systems.

    "The reason you are know for jumping is from years of.... "ROBERT!!!" and you jump up to do what you are told "

    You are a funny guy! And you obviously do not know that I am known for my great legs. Being a long distance runner and a tri-athlete most of my life (I've been kind of slack the last couple of years) have blessed me with decent hams.

    Here are a couple of samples for you:
