The crux of the problem is most Canon shooters aren't used to seeing sharp
images when they use L glass. This is one major complaint when a Canon
shooter switches to Nikon, the razor sharp images with creamy bokeh is too
much for their mind to comprehend all at once. This is why Nikon has taken
into consideration of putting in a "Canon" mode in their pro bodies. This
mode will emulate all the blurriness and focus problems associated with most
Canon bodies. There will also be an "Error 99" emulator as well.

Your insanity has reached new levels! Probably because your ass has reached
a new huge size.

LOL, your humor is priceless! Too bad there's an ocean between us, otherwise
I'd sure would like to have some coffee with you!
Any chance you ever have a holiday in Portugal?

You'll never regret it. It'll blow your mind. Be sure to take a lot of CF
cards or an incredible large imagetank.

They call it "aliasing".

Yep, it seems like you have a lot of interesting things happening,
especially outdoors over there. With spring around the corner over here it
should pick up a bit for the outdoor stuff. The reptiles are starting to
come out. Storage isn't a problem.

Check out google with quinta, palacio and Portugal. The Quinta da Regaleira
is an amazing place. Will take all day to see. Many more palaces and quintas
around Lisbon. Wild life in the north: wolves and golden eagles. Fantastic
mountains with waterfalls. Rocks, beautiful beaches all along the coast.
Weatherproof weather
What I like is the way they leave things alone. Old buildings, old walls (of
Roman times) nothing is broken down. Abandoned factories, houses etc. make
excellent photo locations.
I would stay away from the Algarve in the summer season.

Did you know that Portugal is not only one of the oldest of the European
countries, but also has the oldest original border? So older even than
Greece or Italy.
Best part is the people; very friendly and not so used to visitors (yet).
But a lot of them don't speak English. I would say very below average
compared with any other western European country. Even much of the policemen
don't speak English.
One time I started talking to a young cop in Lisbon, but not one word....
Unbelievable.

Razor sharp with creamy bokeh ... sounds like something to be posted to the
Wine Spectator forum.

LOL and coughing and gasping and then ...

And a humidity indicator so you can take your failing Canon indoors
when it goes over 50%.
