    I don't usually link to DPR, but this one is too good not to. Next time someone asks you about FF, point them here:

    (Just the first post. Many of the others are just sad.)

    Read it, felt like piping up; "but my full frame system only cost me $50!" Except linking back to the film thread here would prolly get me banned ;)

    Nice :)

    As a former full frame owner, that definitely got me chuckling. I do miss aspects of my FF system, but the size and weight trade-offs are simply worth it for me.

    I read it and it has some humor. But I find the format and brand war threads really tedious.

    Hell, I could come up with a "Top 10" list of why my compact Ricoh is superior to either of the above. Number 1 on the list would be:

    - Because it's discreetly pocketable, even in my front pocket. Tried it with the above and got arrested for public indecency and lewdness.

    Humor folks, humor. The author of that post said himself, "not to be taken seriously."
