The Dark Side; Son of D3, the dark truth

Darth Westfall.
The D3x has been released master. It appears the prophecy was true.

Emperor Mitarai
Yes I have seen it… on the shopping channel. They were throwing in a free set of steak knives. How does it compare to our cameras.

Darth Westfall
The image is strong with this one, but we are as yet unsure of it’s true potential. My protege, Mini We, will see to it that the son of D3 never falls below $7999 drive away.

Emperor Mitarai
Good. Gooood. We shall have our revenge Westfall.

Darth Westfall
It appears we already have master. Sales of the 5D II are booming, it is so much more affordable. We have been working on a new Death Camera called the 3D. As strong as any of our Imperial Flagships, with the speed to match.
Mini We, what is the status on the 3D.

Mini We
My master, I have just had news that the engineers working on the project had in fact created a new camera codenamed 1000D. Plastic body, less AF points than the 450D, less MP’s, less functionality.

Darth Westfall
Frames per second?

Mini We
3 frames per second.

Emperor Mitarai
Not exactly lightspeed. Oh crap.

Obi-Thom, a D3 and D300 head out in search of Darth Westfall. They are stopped at a Paparazzi Security check post.

L Seriestroopers
Halt. We’re looking for some mythical rogue cameras. Super fast, well built, good AF.

Obi-Thom
You’re looking for cameras with average AF. You will not find those cameras here. These are not the cameras you’re looking for.

L Seriestroopers
These are not the cameras we’re looking for.

Obi-Thom , D3 and D300 enter

Emperor Mitarai
Hello my dear friend. We meet again and you will finally meet your destiny. The son of D3 will go nowhere. Your group will be crushed by the new 5D MKII. You can not compete with our equipment. You have no answer for our 24, 35, 50, 85 and 135L’s. Your sensors are no match for ours. You will be destroyed when Sony stops selling you their technology. (laughs evilly). What do you say Obi-Thom.

Obi-Thom
Emperor, you had me at hello.

Luke Coolwalker
Don’t hurt yourself Emperor. We’re doing just fine. What is it exactly you will destroy us with… your new 1000D. [Laughs out loud] Stop making me laugh. We’ve built new factories at my home town of Wangalatta to cope with demand.

Mini We
Only two things come from Wangalatta. Steers and queers. I don’t see any horns boy…

Luke Coolwalker
Where exactly would you like me to shove my 70-200 VR.

Darth Westfall
The advertising dollars of the Dark Side is stronger than you can imagine. All professional photographers will want to use Canon and all those beginning photography will buy our new camera..

Obi-Thom
Liar liar, pants on fire. We’re in a recession, advertising dollars have diminished. The Farce is too strong for you now, you have nothing great outside of the Imperial Flagships. You really should get your hands on a D700 Emperor.

Emperor Mitarai
[sacrasm] Let me call one of my homies.[/sarcasm]. We shall crush your pathetic, antiquated, tiny mount cameras. Your last chance is to join the Dark Side.

Obi-Thom
Emperor, why don’t you and Oreo cookie boy go out and do some shooting. You won’t find anybody here who is interested in joining you and the rest of the Village People.

Obi-Thom
Darth Westfall, I heard a rumour you were once with the Farce, and now you’ve switched to the Dark Side. So you’re a switcher. Flip …flop… flip… flop.

Darth Westfall
Ha ha ha ha…. Your Jedi mind tricks will not work on me Obi-Thom. The Dark Side is where I belong. Now, tell me, what is the true quality of the D3x.

Obi-Thom
You want answers.

Darth Westfall
I want the truth.

Obi-Thom
A Canon shooter? You can’t handle the truth.
