    I guess in this case, focal length is more important. 85-105mm is ideal.. 50mm is too short... but then, 200mm is shaky... which may or may not be good depending on the subject preference.

    For me, a 70-135mm with VR is ideal.

    i dont see it as ah pao is mocking the newbie, but just being freindly and making it less serious thats all. little joke like that (those to are not personal attack type) is ok right. work already so stress, come to forum also have to be so serious, very tiring right?
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.

    If its that thread about the eyehole, then I really see nothing wrong with AhPao's post, it was just a "haha" and he eventually said the correct term to use is "viewfinder".

    The thread starter was just overly sensitive and in the light of this, I'll stay 10 miles away from him

    Any photographer: Pro
    Any girl: Model
    Cable release: Hand string
    Flash: Fast light

    To the direct translation even worse....

    Tripod: Stand leg (Chinese: "Zhan Jiao")
    Shutter: Fast Door (Chinese: "Kuai Men")
    Flash/Lighting: Beat Light (Chinese: "Da Guang")

    Of cos, there are alternatives for ur terminology as well...
    Medium Format = Big Camera
    Large Format = ...
    Any girl = chio
    Any model = very chio
    Photographer with P&S = Cameraman
    Photographer with SLR = Pro
    To the one who does like the photographer, photographer = extra
