The problem is that you're a dishonest troll and pathetic suckup.

From somene who has never used L glass, Rita ...

Canon once thought of putting a Nikon mode into their bodies.
The minutes of that meeting note that would entail (according
to Rita):
- Max resolution of 1024x786
- extreme oversharpening
- Bokeh so ugly it frightens small children
- blown highlights
- Focussing on anything but the eyes in portraits
- a complete inability to compose images
- A completely anal phase in photography
- Metering only works on selected lenses, as the light meter
needs enough CPU power in the lens
- AF only works on selected AF lenses
- Fanboys claiming everything works with every lens
....

At this point everyone in the meeting was laughing so hard it
had to be adjurned. As they noted: "You can mount a Nikon lens
to a Canon body, if you really want, but you cannot mount Canon
lens to Nikon bodies ... so we are way more compatible anyway."

Thanks for the pointers. I'll definitely e-mail you when the date is set
and maybe my family can hook up with yours and you can show us around.

Funny, you are finally figuring out what little Wolfie is all about? He's a
sad one, that's for sure. I know on thing, I must have emotionally damaged
him since little Wolfie really took a shine to me like that dog turd that
gets stuck to the sole of your shoe.

It will be my (our) pleasure!
There are still a lot of places I want to visit too. I've been living here
for more than a year now, but I've only been around my city in a circle of
about 50 miles. And still I have so much left to see even there.
Lisbon is an amazing capitol with very much to see and do. Much nice and
modern shopping malls and great landmarks, like the Christo Rei (Christ the
King); very like the one in Brazil but smaller. About 100 yards tall. The
Ponte de 25 Abril is an almost identical bridge to the Golden Gate in San
Francisco. It was even built and designed by the same people. The other
bridge, Vasco da Gama, is the longest of Europe, both crossing the Tagus
river.
For photography is really is one of the best places: you see the super rich
from Estoril's Casino (biggest in Europe) and a little later you pass a man
with a donkey or a goat shepherd. The last are still very much around.

Hm, maybe I should become a part time travel guide?
Anyone else?

Take a look at Nikon's 14-24mm f2.8. Look at the design. Do you
think the cheap bastards at Canon would EVER produce something that
radical just to obtain decent image quality? They could care LESS,
they had the chance with the 16-35mm f2.8, a pricey lens and they did
NOTHING much to improve it. They cynically disregard the problems
with their gear and hope the people using their equipment will just
take the problems in stride. Must be nice being guinea pigs.

It takes great skill and pride in manufacturing a lens as great as the
14-24/2.8 Nikkor. As for the 16-35/2.8L II, you're right! It would have
taken Canon a total redesign to make that lens work. What the hell! If
Canon shooters are with two week old spoiled meatloaf instead of fresh
properly aged filet mignon so be it.

You idiots just don't get it. You're so stuck in the juvenile "my
dick is bigger than yours" crap that you can't understand that it
doesn't matter. You can (and do) take pictures that are garbage even
with the most expensive equipment.

No matter what corporation you're sucking up to there is always
somebody who makes something better. Cope.

Sure you can, but USING garbage won't help someone in either case.
Equipment sure DOES matter.
