    ROFLMAO. Funniest post I've seen in a long time. I've seen this EXACT argument on camera forum OVER and OVER again. Seeing it from the hammer perspective will hopefully show others how ridiculous camera gearheads can be. Now I'm gonna go out and take some phtoos!

    Speaking as a one-time roofer, I loved my Estwing 20-oz with nylon grip; and I still have it.


    CORRECTON: 16-oz

    Some people claim that the Nikon F can be used as a hammer, but I prefer using mine as a camera.

    Different hammers for different jobs.

    As a former Carpenter in my younger days, that read was very very funny.
