Absolutely true story! :)

Sports editor to me on first shoot for sports page: " Hey you can't use
that litle camera,  we need a 4 column picture!  Where the hell is the guy
they usally send with the big 4 column camera?"

Another time:  "OK it looks like you got the right camera this time as I
just need 1 column heads of these guys."  I had the Leica with a 90mm lens
at the time. :)

Well you know most editors only know how to write, well some of them,:) and
as far as photgraphy goes they really don't have a clue.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh it is a world to behold at times as news photographers.:)
Of course some editors are accoustomed to big slr Canon or Nikons with
70-200 lenses & shades, when you came along with an M camera they just
about have a bird. "What's that, one of those disposables? Don't you have a
real camera like the other guys" :)
