My daughter and her fiance were visiting us last week. I showed him a few of my pics and he was pretty interested. So I pulled out my mamiya C33 and he thought it was the coolest thing he ever saw. Then I showed him my 1948 Zeiss Ikonta and he was drooling. He had a little cigarette-pack-sized digisnapper so I handed him an EOS Rebel loaded with Fuji Superia and sporting a 28-90mm lens. By the end of the week he was hooked. He got back to Chicago and was looking on CraigsList for lenses.
Another one turned to the darkslide.
