I'm not a Canon worshiper by any means, but I think that a forum post about two photos of similar subjects (the link is broken, but I know the photo) is pretty thin evidence if you can call it that. Is there any chance that Canon liked the ballerina photo and chose to do that again with the new 300mm? It's not like it's the same girl in both photos.I know you love to hate Canon, but backing up your post with some evidence would be nice.
No problem: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/36140355 - judge for yourself...
Your claim that I somehow "hate" Canon only reflects on yourself. Please point to what merits that claim?
I own a ton of Canon gear - including several large whites. I shot Canon all the time. I have posted many positive Canon reviews through the years. Finally, I have had the privilege of working directly with Canon, including being invited to their HQ in Tokyo to meet their top management. I'd be very happy to work with them again one day - and I'm very sure vice-versa is also true.
I am well aware that not paying respect to the perceived infallibility and supremacy of Canon in everything is considered "bashing" by some people here. But spare me the cheap labelling.
As for the other comments, I haven't read all of your posts, but you sure seem to have a negative slant towards Canon for someone who now says he has such a close relationship with them. If I have read you the wrong way, I apologize for that. It's not my intention to get into it with anyone, but I like to see people who can back up their claims.
