For this photo, you shot with a 17mm lens on a full frame sensor.   My widest prime is 20mm and my camera has a crop (APS-C) sensor.  The combination gives much too narrow FOV for interiors.  Should I buy a 10mm prime for my camera, or buy a camera with a full-frame sensor to go with my existing 20mm lens?  Both options are roughly the same cost.

To all of my new followers who think I am a 6'9" tall tennis player: Sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not that guy.  I don't even like tennis!

Hi!  I just joined the community!  I live in Tucson Arizona.  Tucson hosts eight JW district assemblies each year.  This will be the third year that I have joined other protesters outside the convention center.  I know that many ex-JW's are against aggressive protests, and I have come to agree that they do more harm than good.  This year I am going with a different message, a very personal one.  I'm hoping this year's poster will resonate with more people than last year's "1914" poster.  Here it is.  What do you think?

I have been taking my VW Passat to this dealer for scheduled maintenance since I bought it there in 2004, and I have always been pleased with the service and professionalism of the staff. However getting through by phone to this place is a joke. You can call and let the phone ring for several minutes before they pick up. Or their automated voice response system may answer and put you into an infinite hold. Or an operator answers and "connects you to the service department." Again you wait ... and wait. It happens without fail every time I call.
