Let's just be civil, okay?
You expect much.
These DR arguments end up with both sides pissing in the wind.
With that attitude, these discussions will never be civil. I tried to start a thread dedicated to DR discussion, didn't push any kind of agenda, and the thread was still derailed...primarily by the anti-DR crowd. So long as no one tries to react differently to the DR discussion (which is not going to go away...it's the only real issue Canon cameras have, so OF COURSE people are going to bring the subject up), then nothing will ever BE different.
Discussions about DR have never been civil to my knowledge. I try hard not to wade too deep in it. I know well enough what the D800 sensor can do having shot with it for a couple of months (borrowed it from a friend). I too could give head to head comparisons but for what? It is generally accepted that the DR of the Exmorr sensors is better, hardly anyone denies it. Only that most people around here claim that they don't find themselves overly limited by it. The immediate response one gets with such a claim is being told off that using Canon cameras tantamounts to accepting poor IQ. You shouldn't be surprised that such comments are not going to find too much favor in a Canon gear forum. People get riled up with such silly comments and so we find the posts that are made here.
It's basic common sense to me, nobody wants to hear that the gear they are using is crap. if someone says that then they should be prepared for a riled up answer. To expect anything else is sticking your head in the sand.
TBF, I did mention both sides
