    My favorite line: "Also I take a lot of pictures of twigs against brightly-lit skies, and I think it's beyond all doubt that under these conditions the X100 has absolutely horrible bokeh."

    Very clever, on the right forum too!

    I especially liked: "I was a bit worried about the silent leaf shutter. (Talk about ironic considering how rubbish this camera is for taking pictures of leaves!)"

    Further down someone has joined in with an example of "the worst noise I've ever seen" (sic) - brilliant!

    I was thinking about having a Twig-of-the-month calendar made that I could sell on these forums.
    Life is an infinite series of moments called..."now".
    My job is to capture them.

    Definitely a great read -- I always love when folks describe things like this as a "catastrophe".

    VERY funny; and so are the replies from the few who could not see this. Thanks Terry; we call this "leg-wettingly funny" over here (then our humour tends to the crude, on occasions). cheers, KL
