    Now, as we all know, photography can be a dangerous business. This can lead to that and Stuff can, you know, happen...

    Apparently Cosina agrees :eek:

    I didn't know using a camera lens the wrong way could result in death! :eek:

    I better sign up for an elementary photography class now!

    It happens more with primes than with zoom lenses, but there's always the classic stepping back to frame the shot properly when you're too close to the edge of the Grand Canyon. :wink:

    Well, I always find the front of my lens bumping windows while using the 7-14, so watch of for those cliffs while shooting wide.

    Thanks for the tip, Nick... I need to start reading these warnings. :eek:

    Never thought of that! :rofl:

    I don't care why you did it (science needs no reason!), but dying to know if it fit?!


    :biggrin:

    That warning is no joke.

    My wife says if I buy one more camera this year she's gonna kill me...

    :biggrin:

    Stepping on other people's foot can also be dangerous.

    It's the weight you know. Those Voigtlanders go against the M43 ethos. They'll break your back carrying them around.

    Perhaps a slapstick stepping on a rolling lens, then fall into traffic/down the stairs sort of scenario..
