    "Full frame photographers are four times more likely to have no sense of humor at all than Pentax Q shooters"

    Well, of course. You can't be pensive and mirthful at the same time!

    I'm on the floor, howling with mirth. . .

    "Pull my finger" -- indeed!

    "Photographers with more than three interchangeable lens camera systems are clinically insane." and poor, too.

    John, you have done it again. What a hoot!

    Cheers, Jock

    Sorry, John, you're way off base on this one! :) Although I'm grateful to know that "gelotologist" is a real word.
    My largest sensor is the Nikon D40. I like Buster Keaton, The Marx Brothers, The Big Bang Theory, Firefly, and get a chuckle out of "Schwanda der Doodlesakenpfeifer" (sp?) even when the opera is translated into English as "Schwanda the Bagpiper." Oh, and I liked Wagner before I got my first point-and-shoot. I think all that means I should be shooting with the Hubble telescope!

    However, if I show this study to my husband maybe I can convince him I need a fancier camera.... oh, wait, there's that pesky disclaimer, "Please don't make drastic life decisions based on this chart." Drat, John, you think of everything!

    You could always argue that buying a new camera does not fall under the "drastic life decision" category...I won't tell...

    It depends on the ratio of price of camera to annual income now, doesn't it? :) I'll try to keep that under control!
