    Hahahahaha! The brainless clown strikes again. This sounds like those cheap
    prep guides you see at some of the local magazine shops, "1000pgs, only $10"
    Everything from the material to the paper and printing is worse than dog crap.
    Keep 'em coming Mr. air-head. You entertain me.

    George,
    Just out of curiosity, how much Sigma stock do you own?

    Given the harm he has done Sigma here, I'd guess he has far more Canon and
    Nikon stock. Sigma would be wise to locate him and pay him to shut up.

    His entire brain is invested in Sigma, and there's no room in it for
    anything else.

    Preddy is insane. He thinks that a 3.43MP camera has a higher
    resolution than a 14MP camera.
