My Fuji loaning friend is parting with all his DSLR AF lenses (Nikon mount, as he's an old time Fuji S user), and I offered to list the lenses for him, since I have a pristine eBay profile with high count feedback and time on my hands to deal with the sales. So he sent me his four lenses, which I listed. Today I was selling the second one, a Tamron Superzoom that I wouldn't touch with a pole (my friend had used it ONCE on a one week trip, and nerv taken out of the box ever since). My buyer came with a friend, who played the "photo expert" part. They had brought the buyer's Nikon D40x. For those unfamiliar with Nikon, that's the smaller, cheapo entry level class of Nikon bodies, and it's also at least 4 generations old. Basically now a 150/200$ camera. On my dining table sat my NEX 7 with SEL 35/1.8 mounted, and my friend's loaner X-E1 with Fujinon 35/1.4. Quite a desirable and powerful pair... The driver looks at my cameras and says, proudly : Personally, I have a D90. I say, Oh, I have one too He looks at me quizically and says, a bit perplexed : "and you like those small bodies better now ? The D90 is really a beast". At this point I'm mentally scracthing my head and wondering how not to hurt his feelings. I say Sure, I love mine, it's perfect when I need a fast , reactive body for action photography, but for everything else those two pretty much trump it. There, I see on the guy's face that he thinks I'm a clueless female talking nonsense. I feel the need to help him, and think that, at his obvious photographic knowledge level, MPs are gonna help. So I point at the 7 and say "Well this baby here has the latest Sony APS-C 24Mp sensor, it's not too shabby". A haze of doubt clouds his eyes for a second, then he answers : Well anyway I've had them bridge cameras too, they're convenient for the big zoom (I have a short prime mounted on each mirrorless body in sight) but in the end nothing beats a DLSR. I vigorously nodded and smiled to myself, took the other guy's money and wished him beautiful vacation pictures with his newly acquired big zoom. After they left I was able to openly laugh my butt off looking at two of the hottest cameras of the moment being mistaken for bridges My husband and I got such a kick out of it I thought I'd share !
