Then I won't correct you. 


Yes, but it's temporary, with the $400 rebate. The F5 I believe is about
$2,200 now, or just about the same price. It certainly is a more capable
camera in terms of brute force, but I still prefer the R8 for the way it
"works." It's like a friend vs. co-worker.

What is the probability that something will happen according to the odds?
