I was at a dinner yesterday night, and one of my father's friends saw my D40 and we talked about cameras. I asked him what camera he had. He told me a D90. So I thought this guy was another DSLR enthusiast. I then asked him what lenses he had. He said 105 and the 300. I was thinking, wait, 105 micro and 300 2.8...? And then I asked him how fast were they- he said I dunno 2.8 or 3.5. Then it clicked- this guy doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. He probably has the 18-105 and the 70-300. The most glaring thing- he asked me about megapixels on the D40. That blew my top. He said oh, that's not all that much right? And then when my dad wanted a snapshot of all his friends together, I popped the flash on it. He then commented, oh, it's a 1.8, you shouldn't need the flash. Yeah, if you want the razor thin depth of field to only focus on one person in a group of about 10 people. That really really annoyed the crap out of me. If you don't know anything about photography, do not question me!!! It was a dim restaurant, how else would I have gotten the shot?
Jeez, if you leave it on auto most of the time anyway, should you really be questioning me?
Anyone else have any funny stories, etc. about people who don't know what the heck they're talking about?
