    never ever count your chickens before they're hatched. or in this case, before they have had their looks made permanent.

    How about addressing him/her as "Fellow CS'er" ?

    He told me he's a regular in CS.

    So what's actually the best way to address a fellow CSer if you think you see one?

    maybe break it down by section.

    hello , fellow xmm lover!

    hello, fellow landscaper!

    hello fellow reporter!

    hello, fellow kopi drinker!

    Have another idea. What if can't remember all the sections? In that case, just say,

    "Hi! Fellow GWC."

    For male, GWC = Guy with camera.
    For female, GWC = Gal with camera.

    I will only call someone else comrade if he is also using Nikon
    Otherwise, if I see fellow CS-er not using Nikon, I will assume they are part of the enemy.

    eh, dun become enemy ah. In our Pentax place also got Nikon/Canon users joining us on monthly outing.

    Its only matter of time before we put a gunny sack on them and do the "KIWI"(Like old NS time tradition) them. (sorry guys, just kiddin)

    I also got few Nikonians fren, cannot come to them and say "Hi Nikon...Pfft!" can i?

    I hope for your sake that you don't end up in the hospital, Pentax does have a rather significant portion of the market in medical optics instruments.

    You wouldn't want to have your surgeons collapsing on the floor as they examine your inside with a Pentax endoscope during a major operation.

    He will request the surgeon to use D3X to examine his inside.

    Maybe NTUC unionist people and P*P cadres also address each other as "comrade".

    Address by hand signal.
