The Canon brand fanatics writes about arguments regarding why something suddenly not important anymore (when "their" brand suddenly is not the best ) this take quite comical proportions ... Some very active writers, among others here at Canonrumors's are direct rabid - this despite the notice that they are intelligent enough to see the connections, there is an instinctive religious barrier that prevents them to see what's right in front of their eyes ... :-)
You might carry a bit more weight with your arguments if you actually posted facts, undoctored evidence, and did not resort to personal attacks
. I have respect for elflord
, even if I don't fully agree with his assessments (which I primarily do agree, I just disagree on some of the finer points, as do a number of others here).
You, on the other hand, well to be frank I don't have a shred of respect for you. I'd also point out my fanaticism isn't really about Canon. It is about DXO's scoring system and my general dislike of it, and the often unenlightened application of their scores by die-hard Nikon fanatics. ;P I apply my same skepticism for DXO's scoring in regards to Canon as I do in regards to Nikon (or any other brand, for that matter).
I'll freely admit that I greatly dislike the notion that simply because the D800 is
a great camera, then all other cameras (and particularly Canon cameras) suck donkey danglers, and that the D800 is the end-all, be-all of cameras everywhere, infinitely capable of everything to everyone (a notion you would certainly think was true if you believed all the drivel from the majority of the raging Nikon fanbase). The advent of new & improved technology does not immediately and entirely negate previous technology, or diminish the quality it previously attained. The regular arguments to the contrary, and the bogus doctored, contrived or staged evidence to try and prove that bogus fact, are the fundamental basis of my tirade against such inanity. I've never disagreed that Exmor is some phenomenal technology, nor have I ever said Canon sensors do as well (although I certainly
believe they can do as well or better, and probably will in coming Canon sensor generations). I simply deny that the difference between Canon cameras
and Nikon cameras
is as big as it is usually made out to be by the fanatical branch of the Nikonites. I also believe a periodic reality check to that fact is beneficial to those potentially...gullible enough?...to waste time, effort, and money jumping ship and switching brands when in most
cases (there are a few outliers) it is unnecessary, and people could save their hard-earned cash.
