    Hm! Before today I thought this thread was toast.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Let me guess... It's painted white, is about the size of a normal 300mm and needs to be taken to and parked by the edge of a sports field with a small truck...

    Long ago, while on a trip to Tokyo, I saw an interview with the CEO of Canon on the TV. This was around the year 2003 or so. It was a very long interview, in Japanese, but I was able to watch it with a colleague of mine. Most of it was pretty staid stuff, but at one point the CEO was asked if Canon would produce a pancake lens. The CEO became visibly agitated and responded with a tremendous, emphatic NO! There will NEVER, EVER be a pancake lens with the Canon name on it. NEVER!! He was clearly disturbed at the idea of a pancake lens. I could never really understand why because the translation could not keep up with the TV feed and the interviewer quickly moved onto something less controversial after upsetting the CEO so much.

    I guess there has been a change of leadership since then.
