    This is a quote from a review for a Canon EOS 1D Mark II N.
    "I recently bought this camera, expecting it to take great pics, but I have found thet all my photos come out blurred and distorted. A friend of mine now informs me that, on top of the $3999.99 I paid for this camera, I have to buy lenses to go on the front of it. Why can't Canon give more specific info to prospective customers? Nobody mentioned this before I bought the camera, and I don't fancy paying another $1,149.93 for it to actually work! This is abominable!"

    Now thats someone with WAY too much money and not enough upstairs. Pretty funny though.

    I've got a few lenses that will mount right up to that thing. My 18-55 goes to him only for $1000. A small investment with a large gain.

    Then again, if he's unhappy with the camera, I'll just keep my lenses and take the body off his hands.

    Will the camera even take an exposure with the lens removed? I think only if you set it to manual exposure and manual focus modes. I think the author crossed over the line of believeibility.

    The 18-55 won't mount on the 1D mk II N - it's a 1.3 crop body, and doesn't take EF-S lenses. But if he's that unhappy, I'll willingly ship him my 50mm f/1.8 for just $500! :D

    My DRebel doesn't shoot anything actually visible without the lens on.

    I've actually gotten it to pick up some colors and a little visible difference in lighting, but that after a lot of work with manual mode.

    I don't believe this is an actual review. As shooting in automatic mode (which would be the only mode this guy would know how to use), I don't think it'd pick up anything but white.

    It can't be real.

    Not only would it not take pictures, but the viewfinder would not show any clear images as this require a lens, there is literally no way this is true.
