Wow, it only took a minute, lol.

Or if they were ever in AP classes back in high school

Seriously, you start burning through so many movies when you take AP tests in May but school does not end until June.

Olympus E-450 + 25/2.8 pancake. Weighs less than 500 grams.



I played with an E-PL3 a while back, and it actually felt bigger than my E-410.

I've actually thought about getting that lens for hiking, but it's only like 100 grams more to carry around the kit lens, which is worth it imo.

I remember watching A Clockwork Orange in my AP Lit class senior year. The techer retired the following year, which sucks because I got to read a ton of awesome stuff in that class, sad to think how many kids are missing out.

I guess while we're steering this thread off-topic for the nine millionth time, I'm going to go watch Blues Brothers for..... about the nine millionth time.

Yeah, and especially when they have old characters from Kubrick classics in their avvy. And that's kind of on topic since Kubrick had the famous Zeiss 50mm f/0.7 lens commission specially for Barry Lyndon.

I loved Comedy Central when they used to show Flying Circus. "Mrs. Smegma, will you stand up please?"

True enough, and it has an optical VF to boot.

Thankfully a colleague of mine teaches a great film crit class here; they start with Edison's early silent films.

I got my 50 1.4 back from Canon again for the third time. Its still broken!

I still get front focus on everything past 8-10 feet away from me. I tried shooting the same stuff in live view x10 and the focus is dead on. Once again it does the same exact thing on my 7D and T2i. What should I do now? I'm afraid if I call Canon they're just going to want it back again, which I'm done with.

That sucks...did you send your body in with it? If you didn't you could try that once more. If you don't just sell it and grab the sigma 50 1.4. Or the 50L...

Wow, this really sucks. I'd be pretty fed up as well at this point. I would call Canon up again and demand a new copy. I don't see how they could refuse at this point. You could also ask them if you could send your body in with the lens, so that they can see for themselves. Afterall, surely they test a lens after being repaired?
