How many times have you shown your photos, and been asked what type camera you used? Then the next comment is almost always, that's a good camera. Today I got some compliments on some of my sports images I've been shooting this year. I was told my new "rig" was really working well for me. (I'd gone back to Nikon in Jan, and use a D300/300 f/2.8 combo) I'm not mad or offended, more amused than anything. Sure, the Nikon works much better for me. I like the out of camera images, much better. I know this person probably didn't mean it as insult, so I just ignored it. But it does seem like asking a chef what pots and utensils he used after preparing a fine meal.
