    I can't be the only one who spotted the deliberate mistake on p.8 of AP 12 May:

    The regular feature AP This Week In .. was prefaced by reference to a preview '32 years ago' of the new Pentax LX, seen at the time as a direct challenge to Nikon's F3. Only thing is, this was purported to have been in AP 1880!

    We've clearly underestimated the vision of the Victorians! :cool:

    It gets worse!




    Las Vegas did not even exist in 1880! :D :p

    So quite a lonely place.

    I wonder at what point in the production process it went wrong.

    I think the problem was the year is printed so small. :p

    It went wrong at the point at which I failed to notice the freelance designers error (covering for my ex-deputy - who now occupies the art chair at WDC btw :) ).

    To add insult to injury... AP was first published on October 10 1884!!!

    So it's 'my bad' :( :)
