    Ever heard it being spoken? Now THAT'S hilarious.

    Ever was hanging out at a camera shop when a gentleman dressed in office-wear came in asking for "that 70-300 zoom len" (that 70-300 zoom lens). He went on to use the word "len" at least 3 more times in that conversation. Not one time did I hear "lens".

    yeah i can't stand it when people write 'shuttle count' in their threads. the camera did not travel in any space shuttle or shuttle bus i bet.
