If cameras were hammers, I still would have pre-ordered.

    I'm more fond of Roger Cicala and LensRentals with every post he writes.

    Ya know what's funny? I actually do frame with a Stiletto titanium framing hammer (the old hickory-handled Ruger, not that new garbage LOL). I'm far more religious about my hammer than my camera.

    When I was doing framing for Habitat for Humanity, I went through several hammers looking for just the right combination of weight, balance and grip. Come to think of it, that's probably where my obsession with camera ergonomics began...:rolleyes:

    p.s. I never did spring for titanium; after all, it was volunteer work!:smile:

    A $100 hammer is a tough pill to swallow even if you are getting paid, but I got a deal on a used one. Now that I'm a convert, I would pay the new price if I lost it. Sore elbow is a distant memory and my belt is a lot lighter.

    :2thumbs: for Habitat. I did a little time with them as well. They do good works and recycle a lot of materials.

    That guy really hit the nail on the head and hammered his point home.

    Can't wait for Hammerkina, I'm going to pick up a left handed hammer.

    pretty darn funny...and certainly a high reading on the cringe-ometer :)

    Chuck...Grant, I never knew you guys were carpenters, nice to know I am not alone on this forum. Trusty old Estwing Claw (English Pattern) for me.

    I think it's safe to say that Grant is a carpenter, and I was a part-time nail banger...:smile:
