It can't be too high, this thread is still here :)

Now that's offencive, Sir.

For what it's worth, I can comprehend the Queen's English perfectly.  It's the local patois that I have trouble with...fortunately, I found help.

Just humor, but I apologize for any implications that it applied personally to you or any other poster.  If it did, I'd be implicating myself. (not a unreasonable thought  ;) )

Just curious -- what is the minimum IQ requirement for posting in the forum here? And by "IQ" I mean the old school variety -- Intelligence Quotient.

We just had a thread shut down for being "beyond stupid." That would suggest that posts must meet a certain intellectual level before proceeding to full forum discussion. What's the standard? Surely we would not be capricious about such a thing.

Or, is it possible people may be stressed over an upcoming taxes due date in the U.S? That may explain some reduced tolerance for our mentally challenged members.

Since I'm not the brightest lens in the mix here, I'd like some guidance on this matter so pressing to me.

Thanks.

two points below your IQ is the limit...  :)

high enough to write the post but not so high as to make it well thought out.

Then again, all you need is a billion monkeys typing on keyboards and some way to pick the ones to post  8)

That thread almost immediately degenerated into insults, which I'm sure was the intention of the OP.  They can troll somewhere else.

At the risk of having this thread suffer the same fate,  I suggest 2.8 is the number you seek.


Why 'stop' @2.8.   That's not fair '2' those more 'open-minded' or those who have had 1.2 many cocktails.  ;)
1Dx, 1DIV, 5D3, 7DII, (Sigma 15 FE)
16-35/2.8; 24-70/2.8 II; 70-200/2.8 II, 100-400L
35/1.4, 40/2.8; 50/1.2, 85/1.2, 135/2; 200/2

The insults were deleted, the sophomoric humor was left alone.

Humor is fine, but when it degenerates into mean spirited attacks and name calling, either mods have to babysit the thread, or we have to shut it down completely.  There have been too may threads that have gone the wrong way lately, and this one had no redeeming value.

2.8 is OK I guess provided a red L follows  ;D

2.8 is OK, or 4 with IS  ;D


IS= Intelligence Stabilizer  ;D

Certainly your DOF gets narrow as you approach 1 . . . then everything goes fuzzy as you're finally able to take it all in, and then darkness as the shutter comes down.

Oh I do like this metaphor. Better than the chicken even, though that did result in me giggling audibly in the office.

Ok, now I'm interested… Which thread?




And as to the question about I.Q. requirement... Please keep it low, I like it here…  ::)
« Last Edit: April 11, 2013, 04:26:44 PM by Harry Muff »
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

Methinks the IQ test should include the following:

Q. Does the 1DX have a green box?

Q. Maximum number of days until Canon might release the 5D3 firmware?

Q. How many Canon's have had the same 18MP sensor?

Q. Why isn't there a left handed DSLR?

No offense offence intended.  It appears my attempt at humour may have fallen apartment flat.

Now THAT's funny!

Yikes ! Even the mods can't spell humour humor correctly  >:(

It's worth pointing out that the spelling of English words has a heritage running back about 2000 years as it is strongly influenced by the latin ( Romans )  and as that developed over the millennia into other ( but not all ) European languages. This is why humour is spelt with a 'our' instead of how it sounds: 'or'

It was your erstwhile Noah Webster who, after the American War of Independence, when you guys decided you didn't want to be ruled by us Brits anymore ( can't think why  ::)   ) published his 'American Dictionary of the English Language' around 1820, and altered many words to be spelt as they sounded, specifically to make 'American English' different. However many of his radical changes to spelling were never accepted, such as spelling women 'wimmen'  ;D

To quote Bernard Shaw : 'England and America are two countries separated by a common language'  ;D

Anyway I'll keep it  :-X now, that's probably made everyone wish the original thread was back  ;)

Careful with those, corner sharpness will deteriorate, and you can expect increased vignetting

Rather than a straightforward minimum IQ score, I propose the following criterion for forum participation:

(IQ score / your camera's DR score) > 9

The smaller denominator gives more of a chance for us dumb Canon shooters to participate in this forum.   ::)
