I was once a lens maniac like many of you, guys. All this lasted till I had a chance to compare two (presently extinct) camera/lens systems. This comparison taught me a lot, and among other things it taught me not to "trust" the lens and work with hi-end lenses as if worked with poor ones. All lenses are "culs-de-bouteille" to me now. I think some of you will attain this level of skill someday. I do not care much which lens I use now, unless it is a Tamron, which I can not even get focused (br-r-r-r-r-r!).
You just continue selling lies to each other. It is all about money, not the result. If we ran a test 99% of you would not tell a Zeiss from a Leica, a Canon from a Nikon. Not speaking about the poor public, who never cares. It is all about money. "You will either know it...,or you won't".*

[QUOTE=desertratt;1451084]I would hate to see the day when everything photographic sells for ten bucks. I recently bought a Nikon N70 body in beautiful shape for $20,
Just as well it was $20. Presumably you'd have refused to buy it at $10:D
La Chou, no doubt the poor public needs protection . . . :whistling:
BTW, what extinct mounts did you try and what were your results?
I never said I can tell them apart. My point was, almost nobody can...
What "better results" are you talkig about. I meant to say: you can't trust your lens with anything, you have to watch out or it will fail you.
When I take a camera it is myself who is generating inspiration. The camera is good when it "knows" how to get out of the way. It's just an instrument. For want of a "glock" you can achieve the same result with a crowbar.
