This one isn't about a lens, nor is it mine, but it's in the category of ridiculous.
A friend of mine was (rather predictably) taking pictures of a train, and a line of people had formed at a particular spot to do just that. Now, my friend was shooting with a rebel XSi, and as the train went past, people yelled at him for his camera being too loud. This is in a line of people who CLAIM to be photographers!

If the train just zoomed by and the camera was STILL to loud (ie at all audible). Then i think the people have a point :D, any rebel wich clicks louder than a passing train should be checked by canon.

I did a wedding a few weeks ago, and the pastor had told me I was free to roam the sanctuary as long as I stayed behind a given row of pews, and as long as my camera "was not too loud".

Before the wedding, I always set WB on all of my cameras, and match settings, etc. I pulled out my 20D and clacked a few off to check the histogram, and the pastor who was above me in the balcony called out... "That thing is a LOT louder than it was last night..."

I assured him it was my THIRD backup and if I actually had to use it, he should take a hint and start preaching on patience. He immediately said, "Heavenly Father, I ask now that this photographer's equipment work flawlessly and this particular camera can stay in his bag. AMEN!" I got a chuckle, and never needed to touch the 20D...

This past weekend I was taking some shots on the Mississippi river bluffs and a guy with a P&S walked up and saw my gear. He said, "I wish I had a setup like that!". I replied, " my suggestion would be to start taking drugs instead...it would be less expensive and far less addicting!"

Not to mention they have rehab for drug addicts.

Oooh, I've found my new career! You pay me thousands of dollars, I'll help you withdraw by taking away all your gear one piece at a time, replacing it with methadone to help ease the transition. I'll make a mint. Plus, I get to keep all the stuff!

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?

Yes, but somehow I think POTN has the opposite effect..it seems to amplify the need for more equipment, constant upgrades etc....:D

When it ceases to be fun, it will be time to walk away

Agreed! My wife wonders why I look at the L lenses with more passion than her. I may need help... just after I get the 300mm f/2.8 L IS USM.... and 5D II as a second body...and...
