Rich, that is just Brett. He's good people though, so don't get worried about it. What gives me a laugh is that all these really really really old polls have suddenly started getting votes again! It's wild to see some of these pop up out of the past.

And I'll add a serious "Thank you" for the whole beauty pagent. A great idea and a boatload of work. I've been enjoying it tremendously.

We should've had one of sponsors put up a camera and some gear, and then we could've devised some kind of pool (like a Super Bowl pool), or parlay card. The winner would get the camera and the runner-ups would get lesser, but still cool, gear.

should've, could've, would've

I'm betting the Canon P will be in the top 3 or 5 vote-getters, maybe even #1.

The Canon P is right now the leader in Group F.

Votes on leading cameras per group so far is:

Group A: Leica M3, 78 votes (out of 174)
Group B: Leica IIIf, 40 votes (out of 172)
Group C: Leica MP. 38 votes (out of 119)
Group D: Leica M2, 25 votes (out of 112)
Group E: Leica M6, 21 votes (out of 73)
Group F: Canon P, 16 votes (out of 65)

(* Of course the above is also a direct result of how 'tough' or 'even' the group is).

So good going to Canon P who is so far the only non-Leica camera in the lead in ANY of the groups!!

Having said that..there is still some time to go until the groups starts closing.

Without a Contax G there is no contest, so may the least ugly camera win

I just can't see #4 winning.

Brett has said far more idiotic things.

Maybe we could start a poll on which statement is Brett's most idiotic statement.

Should be easy.

Find all Posts by Brett.

Make into a Poll.

You guys are worried about which ones you voted for are winning?

Worry if you want to buy all of the ones that are winning.

Why is this thread remaining at the top of the active threads page when, before me with this post, it had not been active compared to many other threads that have come and dropped lower on the page?

Edit: Good, now it's moving down as it should.

Melanie seems to know her way around a camera pretty well.. and does a great job of metering

She does - and will be the first one to admit that she doesn't do a whole lot of metering - at all This photo was taken in - as you can see - pretty harsh light outside a coffee shop here in San Francisco so pretty hard to get the exposure right. Looks good though. The exposure. Not the subject

This thread is doing it too. It seems to be jumping back to the top without being added to. Anyone else notice this or is this my brain chemistry problem?
