I received an E-mail from a local camera club announcing that a member had something to sell. The subject of the E-mail was: "For sale Used Cannon G5"

Not being familiar with this, I did an internet search for G5 Cannon and found this product

I am curious when and how the item for sale was used, but whatever it was, it must have been a blast.

Let the punnery begin.

And the best news is that with the end of Apartheid, South Africa is free to sell it once again. One of the finest you can buy on the market!

Now that's strange indeed. Which search engine were you using? If you search for a cannon, you should not find a howitzer.

A Pontiac G6, perchance? As a promotion Leica once offered the 800 mm f/6.3 Telyt-S with a free carrying case -- A VW Fox.

Possibly dust and oil are also issues.

The main questions I am still pondering:

1. For focus fine tuning, what kind of target do you use?

2. While image editing may be non-distructive, I imagine that image capture is the opposite. In fact, "capture" could take on a whole new meaning.

It gives new meaning to Chimping as well I suppose. If the first shot doesn't look like what you wanted, well, tough. The second shot will look even worse.
