Stupidly, I keep getting riled up by this endless debate. Some people just want to bash Canon regardless. Some people try to be objective and are continually shouted down....... where does it end? I'm not saying there isn't a desire amoungst many Canon users here, myself included, for Canon to improve the DR, SNR etc etc of their sensors, certainly I welcome all improvements, I'm happy to concede Canon lags the competition in this area. How much difference it actually will make to my photography, when there are many other perameters to also consider, I don't know. What I do know is that the same old arguments are very wearing, the same old people triumphantly claiming SoNikon's world dominating superiority- and no, I'm not dismissing people who come up with reasoned arguments from either side. The sun still shines. I think I need to spend less time on this forum.
