thanks for your answer. I too, look for useful information on this list. I
delete lots of messages that have no value to me. And I gave credit to those
who answered in the vein it was taken. But we all tend to take ourselves too
seriously and this list seems to go to extremes at times. I didn't do this
to hurt anyone. I did it so we could all gain a little introspect to our
selves. have a little laugh. Probably not my place, but I did it anyway.
After the Nazis thread, we needed to relax. Remember yes, but relax.

With all due respect, is this another one of your experiments in LUG
manipulation such as the one you pulled regarding lens caps? While there
may have been some truth in how argumentative the LUG can be over
something this seemingly trivial, there were also a number of people who
answered in good faith. I thought it unfair to humor yourself at these
people's expense. At heart this is a group that interacts and desires to
share knowledge.

That being said, I would put my camera and lens in plastic prior to
taking inside so that any condensation forms on this outer barrier
rather than on cold camera surfaces. Once camera temp has equilibrated
to room temp then you can remove it.
