"to affect mentally or morally with a sudden pang: His conscience smote him."

or

"Take cover lest the flying debris smite you, mortally."

Urban dictionary has another meaning, but can't post it here!

Sorry, wrong tense in your example. Don't want to further confuse the ESL folks...

For $3500 you're going to get a ironclad upgrade for the 5d2, let's be honest.

I'd be more than happy to pay $3,500 or the UK equivalent of £2,200, but the main problem I have with the pricing is that it's listed at £3,000 or the equivalent of $4,737.
To me it looks like the mother of all cameras, and for me and I would love to have one. Just not at an extra $1,237. I'll wait until there's some grey market ones around me thinks!

"to affect mentally or morally with a sudden pang: His conscience smote him."

This is the correct use of the word "smote" being the past tense of the verb to smite. I smite today, but yesterday I smote.

However the use earlier in this thread was using the perfect tense "I have never smitted" so the correct word is the past participle "smitten" as in "I have smitten".

Just like I write (verb) I wrote (past tense) I have written (perfect tense).

Now, what camera were we talking about?
