19.  'IQ'
Whose? ;)

 ;D

With your iq you'll know !

And yes it was the Radisson. Well spotted !
Thanks for confirming. Imagine my joy when I discovered it and my dismay when I realised I'd never be able to shoot that kind of scene once I got down at departures :(

21. Being overly passionate and concerned about how first time buyers (or anyone) spend THEIR money.

Some folks react as if it's coming out of their own savings. You're new to dslrs and want to buy a 1DX? Great. Next!

22. Wanting an almost infinite megapixel camera in order to make prints that will be seen from ... space  ;D
P.S Even if the best lenses cannot resolve more than ~ 20Mpixels (According to DxO)

Quite.  This typically overlaps with 1-3.  If the camera really doesn't matter, then it doesn't matter if a novice starts with an expensive, high-end camera.  (Anyway, isn't it easier to learn how to use a dslr when, as is the case with higher-end cameras, changing basic settings requires less complicated fiddling with menus?  I found my first dslr, a Nikon D3100, and point-and-shoot pocket cameras, far more intimidating than my subsequent Pentax K-5 and 5DII/5DIII/6D.)

24. Calling a version one a Classic or giving it a C. A 5D is a 5D, not a 5DC, as are 1D's and 1DS's.

25.  Folk stating their modest budget in £'s and getting told to buy a camera costing 10x as much.  And from a store that trades in $'s.

26. Folk that say 'I would rather a dslr without video with the money spent on double the resolution instead'

29: Pickles, they are things you eat, they and not found in the millions on your camera sensor. Camera sensors have mega pixels.

30: People that think there is a demonstrable difference in 1/3 stop of dof, particularly at 700px in a forum post.

31) People that just don't know when to stop but continue to labour labor their point (in the face of evidence to the contrary) long after everybody else has either a) lost interest or b) lost their mind.

34) "Hi, I've just bought a 1DX, 24-70ii, 70-200ii and 600RT, how do I become a wedding photographer?"
