Well, Keith you can expect to be pilloried for your observation but you are exactly right. The "Victim" act has gotten old. Unfortunately, judging by some of the responses here it seems to work on some people.
However, I AM one of a group of people here who are regularly treated like idiots and fools writing useless words because we want more DR in a Canon camera. A complete - if utterly predictable - misrepresentation of the truth of the matter.
You're not treated that way because you want more DR.
You're treated that way for banging on, and on, and on, and on about it, to the level of trolling.
And - for what it's worth - the only thing more deserving of criticism than a troll, is a troll who has the bare-faced cheek to present himself as a victim because his trolling attracts the oh-so-predictable reaction from others...
I stay out of most of these threads because, quite honestly, I'm just not smart enough for them. But I have observed a few things. DR problems are, as someone has noted, as old as photography. You think Canon sensors are bad, try shooting a high contrast scene with a lot of red using a slow orthochromatic film. IOW, there have always been challenges. Even though I am not the sharpest knife in this drawer, I have been able to learn some things from reading jrista's posts (only a few things, refer back to my first sentence). I also have learned from reading Keith or Neuro's responses, along with others. I think one of the problems is that every thread (at least those that seem to interest me) deteriorate to the exact same DR discussion and then further deteriorate to those who are fond of the (excellent) exmor sensors being referred to as DRones and those of us who like the excellent ergonomics and function of the Canon bodies as "fanboys." (I'll accept the fanboy title since I have been using Canon cameras exclusively since switching to digital and, along with a Leica, a couple of Bronicas and an old Speed Graphic, for many years prior to that switch).
I'm not sure there is a solution to the issue. Certainly a better sensor would be nice in the Canon body. But I am to old, and poor, to switch systems. I get a lot of pleasure out of my photography, though my pictures are not usually at the level of those taken by jrista, keith, or others who are more active. So I will just muddle along with what I have (and the 7DII that is on order). And I will thank all those that have helped educate this old man while asking you all to tone down the rhetoric toward each other. Most of you have some great points to make, don't let them get lost in the rhetoric.
