I use a 35mm lens on my dSLR

FILM IS DEAD, GET OVER IT! Locally labs are going out of business. I guess
film will disappear within 5 years.

Even if that were true (and I don't think it is, but that's another
whole discussion), it's got nothing to do with the inappropriateness of
posts about digital cameras here.

How 'bout we say that when film is officially dead, then y'all can come
back and post here, OK?

"In 1964 Barry Goldwater declared: 'Elect me president, and I
will bomb the cities of Vietnam, defoliate the jungles, herd the
population into concentration camps and turn the country into a
wasteland.' But Lyndon Johnson said: 'No! No! No! Don't you dare do
that. Let ME do it.'"

- Characterization (paraphrased) of the 1964 Goldwater/Johnson
presidential race by Professor Irwin Corey, "The World's Foremost
Authority".

No I don't. I shoot with a 35mm sensor in a dSLR.

>35mm is a film format.


It is also a digital sensor format. In both cases, the image is 36x24mm
+/- some tolerances which have never actually been defined for the film
medium, but are often provided with the camera, whether film or digital.

>The DSLRs are 35mm camera look-alikes.


Some are, but that does not mean that ALL dSLRs are 35mm look-alikes.

No it's not. The 50D is NOT a 35mm camera
nor does it have a 35mm size sensor.
Keep this crap in the digital groups
where it belongs!

It's just a rinse-and-repeat from a company with
a doctorate on the subject. Nothing to see here,
move along...

I'm in one of my kill-file moods where I lose any interest in arguing
with trolls, net-cops, and obtuse posters, and simply add them to the
filters along with the usual subject words of premodded game consoles,
watches, jeans, shoes, make money on the internet, etc. It's amazing how
large the message filter log gets in just a few days.

One key thing in Thunderbird's news reader is to kill-file globally
rather than by individual newsgroup, as many of the problem posters are
posting on many different subjects in many different groups.
