Actually, I have won every single time I have gone point/counterpoint here. Every single time! An unblemished record! Over all of these years! Unbelievable!

Such as, for example, a recent 60D debate ...

Mom is very proud.

Your fellow debate team nerds push their glasses up their noses and raise their pocket protectors as a toast to you, before hiking their pants up to their nipples.

The net has about seven people quoted as saying:

"I'm a firm believer in Luck. And I find the harder I work, the more luck I have."

Great point. I will definitely try to work harder in twenty eleven.

Really? I uploaded a shot of the 4449 from Trainfestival 2009 last weekend and it did less than stellar despite the long wait. I thought the shot was going to do much better in views but as of right now there are only 456 hits.

Right on Jim.

So get the best glass you can, as soon as you can. You won't regret it. And you will wish you had done it sooner.

As far as fake L is concerned, since the 17-55 and the 10-22 are EF-s they cannot cover full frame, are not weather sealed and don't have that red ring signifying an L lens.
However, the glass in both is, from what I see, indistinguishable from L performance. So they get the fake L from me.

Dennis, you might want to cover up, your age is showing. You might want to try and reply to Jim in the thread where lens are being discussed.

OK then if plastic is as good as metal body's then Canon wouldn't make pro body's out of a cast metal!

Oh well, that's a first.

My internet was screwed up last night. So I cut and pasted what I wrote.

Then I pasted and posted.

But on the wrong thread.

Age? No. Tired? Yes. "Right on" indeed. (now THAT'S age!)
