You should really learn how to understand sarcasm when you see it. I think you just like to argue, and will not quit until you get the last word...
So... go ahead. Have the last word. Hope it makes you feel all happy and tingly inside.

Yes, we all do and that is why we are interested in reading threads like this.

When I was there a few weeks ago, what some folks who live there told me was it had more to do with increased austerity at the governmental levels trickling down to the rest of the upper/middle class, which has cooled two of the major drivers in their economy (consumer and government spending).


Yes, I do agree that, that is another major factor in preventing official corruption and another economic bubble from bursting.

Didn't you said that you were not going into politics or criticizing someone else?

So what is this?

I am selling my 7D and while I won't be quitting Canon, I was about to pull the plug on a D7100 as my crop camera, but I might just wait and see if this D400 rumour pans out.

How is the performance of the new 80-400 AF wise? I would only be using the camera for wildlife (initially) and this would probably be my first lens choice. I'd be happy if IQ were as good as 100-400L (mine's excellent) but AF was noticeably faster, especially for tracking. I'd expect IQ to be even better however, given price and 17 years newer lens design.

Ahhh! Just got back from a week with no internet, radio, TV, phone, etc ... was wonderful

And then my wife informs me she's pregnant with #6 ... even better!

Life is good ... then I see how far afield this thread went ... really people?

Anyway, in less than two weeks I'll have to change the title ... :P I'm not giving up until December!

AF on the new AF-S 80-400 is very fast and accurate. Just got back from the UK and part of the trip I went to the Farne Islands to photograph the puffins there. I have only post processed a few and here is a good example of the speed and accuracy of the 80-400. These birds fly past quite quickly and in a bit of an arratic fashion:

In most circumstances, the bokeh is very nice too:

I had to check out your WWW link and came upon what appear to be quite a few excellent photos of a crop of beautiful kids. There's even one of you, your wife and four kids so it is either an old image or one of your brood is off on his or her own. Congratulations! I spent part of the day yesterday at a one year birthday party for the son of dear friends. Because many of their friends came, there was a plethora of infants younger than two years old. It was quite a delightful scene. You don't need to invite company to have a crowd of munchkins around Andre... definitely the good life if one is up to it... and you seem to be. Well done, though we all know your wife does most of the "heavy lifting" here.

A beautiful family!

Thanks!

And yes, my wife is a saint on Earth.

I've stopped using Flickr and now just use Facebook for posting photos since it's so much easier. Here is a more recent family shot.

Nice to see you Andre. Beautiful family.

Not a chance in the world I could do 6. I've got a cat named Sandwich and that's pushing it.

Congrats on #6, Andre. Hope that the new baby and wife have nothing but blue sky and smooth sailing in the future. Of course, that also applies to the rest of the family.
