Of course JCH isn't going to get $1000. They'll get $7,000 because there were seven images. You forgot to apply the Rockwell Stolen Image Multiplier™ to your calculation.

I like Delta 3200 too. I like DDX as well. It's all good. I ordered some P3200 because it's cheaper than D3200 when you buy from the right people, and I want to have some fun with something new.
