:x Thursday was a bit of a mare. I woke up with the kinda migraine that would knock out a horse. But being the brave little soldier I am off I went to work at an ungodly hour! I got to work and decided that a walk and a half days leave would be better. So I did. I was hoping to spy a good cheap Canon Digital ........... I went into one shop and they were helpful and told me all I wanted to know. the next shop ...... OMG what a total A****** ! Fir4st he told me that the Canon were the worst camera makers, that the Canon EOS 300D was a overpriced compact, then he tried to get me to buy a Nikon. I explained a third time that I had 4 Canon EF fit lenses and that I wanted a Canon SLR. Did this make hi take note? The hell it did ! he went in to full on muppet mode ! He told me that Nikon was the prefered camera for the Professional. I politely explained that wasn't quiet true as I had covered some big games at Wembley Stadium in the past and 98% of the pros used Canon EOS 1 or variations there of. This took the wind a little out of his sails. But he rallied with a ... "well.... this is a good camera" .. and showed me a Rollei compact ! Ok so if I were an unsuspection "punter" I might had fallen for his sales patter ... but I didn't. So how many others have had similar experiences =like this ...... oh and the migraine left me two days later .... and I took photos wit hthe migraine too .... dedication huh ?
