Not sure if this is in the right place, so please move it if required, thanks. So today after hockey, a friend of mine asks if I will come with him to Staples to look at some compact digital cameras. He is thinking of buying one for his wife (and himself) for Christmas and he knew that I knew more then him about cameras. So there are a couple different models he is looking at when a sales person comes over to offer some help. I forget which exact model it was, but it was a Canon (A520 maybe), and the sales guy says that you can attach SLR lenses to it. So my friend is happy because his wife has an old Konica all manual camera and she can use those lenses on this new camera. The sales guy is nodding an "of course you can" kind of response. Meanwhile I am just shaking my head. I ask the guy point blank : "You are 100% sure you can put OLD slr lenses onto this little digital camera?'" He is positive. I ask: "The mount on that digital camera is WAY too small to fit an SLR lens onto." He says: "I think there is an adapter you need to get." I had another guy I worth arguing with me that "YES, you can put slr lenses on this little digital camera, the guy at Staples told me!". I guess this is what happens when you get some high school kid selling computers, desks, lamps, calculators, batteries, stationary, phones and CAMERAS. Pretty pointless rant, but I feel better now.
