I have a little satnav, It sits there in my car.
A satnav is a drivers friend, It tells you where you are.
I have a little satnav,I've had it all my life.
It's better than the normal ones, My satnav is my wife.
It gives me full instructions, Especially how to drive.
"It's sixty miles an hour" it says, You're doing sixty five.
It tells me when to stop and start, And when to use the brake.
And tells me that it's never ever, Safe to overtake.
It tells me when a light is red, And when it goes to green.
It seems to know instinctively, Just when to intervene.
It lists the vehicles just in front, And all those to the rear.
And taking this into account, It specifies my gear.
I'm sure no other driver, Has so helpful a device.
For when we leave and lock the car, It still gives its advice.
It fills me up with counselling, Each journey's pretty fraught.
So why don't I exchange it, And get a quieter sort?.
Ah well, you see, It cleans the house. Makes sure I'm properly fed.
It washes all my shirts and things, And keeps me warm in bed.
Despite all these advantages, And my tendency to scoff.
I only wish that now and then, I could turn the bugger off.
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

But OH SO "almost" true in "many" cases - not "saying" that I have "experience", but I can "sympathise"
K-3 II, K-3 and K-30 (now running the Hacked K-50 f/w, so it thinks it is one of those ), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!) - and now a K-70 from SRS

I went to see the witch doctor the other day. I told him I had a curse put on me 50 years ago. I asked him could he remove it. He said " yes I can but I need to know the exact words that were used at the time". I told him that's easy. I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU ********

A lady congratulated me today on the size of my equipment! I said thatís something I donít hear very often; she was referring to the DFA 70-200 f2.8 on my K1.

A lady told me mine was too small. I was using a Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 zoom lens.

PS: maybe a 1000mm F8 TeleTakumar might change her mind

OOPS, that IS a "little" bit bigger, so maybe she thinks that "size" is all that "matters"!

Not worth "bothering with" IMHO - really "good things come in small(er) packages"
