Good. I myself, like 35mm portraits.
I agree. It's probably a bit about (and I should be clever enough to get beyond minutia like this) the difference between saying you believe something is not suitable and saying something is categorically not suitable - between an opinion couched as such and a regal pronouncement. This is especially important when we are responding to advice being asked by people who may be relatively inexperienced and may view our advice as being unassailably accurate if it is couched in definitive terms. It seems to be a Duty of Care thing ... to me ... in my opinion ...
