    I'm not really that big of a Canon vs. Nikon kinda guy but the idea came into my head while driving the other day after seeing all these Calvin's peeing on Nikon.

    "I wouldn't even piss on it if it was on fire."

    My avatar was born.

    I hear Bill Watterson is pretty disgusted about how often Calvin is misused.

    Silly Tulsa, don't you know people who despise Nikon are busy thinking up new ways to demonstrate their dislike and don't have time to take pictures.

    Ahh, I now understand:sexywink:

    I am not even sure if I understand the avatar. Are you pro or anti Nikon?

    I own a Canon, but if a great deal on Nikon gear came around, I wouldnt hesitate to buy it.

    I took from the avatar that if he were to see a Nikon on fire, he wouldn't pee on it, extinguishing the fire :p

    I wouldnt pee on it either, That requires exposure waay too close to the flame, the question is, would he use a water hose?

    You'll have to belive me for now (I actually can't find it on my computer and it was never good enough for flickr).

    Suffice to say it works well at 100 pixels - fullsize its a lot lot lot softer. 70-200mm f2.8 IS L + 2 * teleconverter shot wide open right up close (pretty much at the min focusing distance).

    I took from the avatar that he thought Nikon was hot and that Calvin agreed.

    Correct!


    HOWEVER!

    I am not truly an "anti-Nikon" guy. If I was offered a nice Nikon camera I would leap at it. I just thought it was a funny idea so I went with it.

    The phrase "I wouldn't piss on ________ if it was on fire" is just a very redneck way of showing disdain for something or someone.
