@edesignuk,

Dude what camera are you using??!!!! To get serious colour and resolution?? I gotta know!!
evoluzione is correct, they were taken with a Canon EOS 350D (aka, Digital Rebel XT). 8MP of glorious colour and clarity :cool: :D

The stock standard one that everyone loves to slag off :rolleyes: Looks good to me.
I'm not familiar with that camera at all (successor to the the 300D right?) so I have no idea what lens you are referring to. Care to expand a little for me and others who don't know and are quite obviously to lazy to search for it themselves? Please? :D

It's an "EF-S 18-55 mm", whatever that means exactly :eek:

From the summary of the review it sounds like an awesome camera, and you seem to be weilding it rather well too, nice pictures. Whatever that means :rolleyes: on the lens seems nice, and the review seems to like it a little bit too so it can't be all bad.

Nice shots of a great car. Now you can not only supply KK but GT photos, excellent :D

Yea, those Rebels are incredible. The stock lens isn't as bad as all the photo snobs make it out to be. It may not be the best, but it is far, FAR from being the worst.
However that Ford: crap.
Don't know about across the ye ole pond, but they have have never produced anything worth a damn in the US. I wave seen way too many POS Ford thunderbirds aka blunderchickins and Escorts aka pushcorts to ever give Ford another glance. Not to mention I grew up in the Pinto era. So to me this is just like seeing Hyundai or Kia super cars.

Carrol Shelby's GT-40's and Cobras beat the Ferrari's. :cool: No decent cars, huh?

Me neither, but I really don't think you can look at this like just a "ford", it's a million miles away.

Thats just what Ford said about the Pinto. I can still somewhat remember their comercials. Someingthing along the lines of: Qualiy and economy far above and beyond previous ford models, This aint your dadys Ford. something along those lines. Or lies as it were.

Oh and I don't think that the Cobras were actually Fords. Were they not actually made by AC cars and then fitted with Ford engines tuned by Shelby?

Yes, which is precisely why there were not called "Ford Shelby Cobra"s, they were Ford powered but not a Ford car.

Shelby GT500 is awesome, GT350 as well. I agree Ford does not make the greatest cars on earth, however given the latest makings with the GT, I have to turn my head regardless of manufacturer, I like it :D

Not that this saves anything, but the commercial with the GT going around the track....I just LOVE how it is so quiet and then the engine just roars! Amazing sound, lovely really.
