but like kaydee says, if you're on a great site seeing trip (or even family

That is exactly why the SLR wins out. As well quick focus with selectable focus zone and good frame rates. With the G's I have to pre-focus then compose, the "intelligent" focus isn't always where I want it to be and on certain subjects there isn't that time latitude to hope for when shooting.
As for the "look what I got". Picked up a RRS QR clamp. I messed up the Kirk while milling the bottom slot out. The cross vise wasn't snugged up and I managed to move the X-Y handle during an adjustment. When I went to machine the slot, the Kirk clamp shifted and the X position was off. Result bungled slot. There went $60.
Happens, can be saved but I wasn't in the mood to mess with the machines so the RRS was picked up earlier in the week. (I just love stopping into their showroom.
RRS clamp on left, Kirk on right. I prefer the size of the Kirk clamp so once I feel motivated I'll work on the Kirk clamp.
