I only made it half way through Ross Harvey's portfolio. I take it he's won an award or two in his day ? Why doesn't he just include a slide that says "My wife loves my foot-long package"

Because it's tiresome to have seen years worth of such general veiled, or not so veiled, insults.
Some very knowledgeable posters don't even post in any forums any more and it feels like they were driven away. I think they got sick of being constantly attacked and personally insulted. Some stuck around longer but became a lot chippier themselves after a while.
Not to mention that you asked me why I decided to bring this up and I was just pointing that it was you who brought up the whole portfolio thing.
That's kinda rich since you were the one who brought portfolios and hinted that the DR side is basically a bunch of zero portfolio types.
You were the one who started trying to make claims that one side had the portfolios.
A lot of people like to keep their photography separate from all the tech/Canon marketing mess pushing controversy and feel freer to just call it all as they see it and so on.
And for the record, when you do come across the portfolios of those who ask for more DR, I have to say they generally are among the more impressive and comprehensive ones you'll find while many of those attacking them and talking about going out and shooting end up having a portfolio consisting of three, non-artistically, blurred photos of a cat in the back yard (not in your case though, just to make that clear though and for all I disagree with what and how he posts here, Sporgon does have a good portfolio too).
I mean heck did you miss the flickr account linked to earlier in this thread?
Don't you think the irony of this is that many of the images shown on CR match or even surpass those on other sites ?
Absolutely. I wouldn't recommend buying the A7r as a GP camera, but as a landscape camera it's pretty awesome. You could add it to your kit, use your existing Canon lenses (or Zeiss or Sigma EF lenses), and make that "pocketbook vote" without breaking the bank.
The Sony sensors are clearly better than the Canon sensors right now. Sitting around and making excuses for Canon isn't going to help encourage Canon to get their S___ together and give us some new sensors.
Put the other way around: If people spent this kind of energy in making images instead of Grandstanding just think of how many wonderful things there would be to share with the world. Gods! People might actually perk up, set down their TV remotes, stop their Twittering, and pay attention to you!! You might actually become famous, rich and recognized during your lifetime for outstanding work!!!
Were stuck looking elsewhere for someone to service our needs, and for those who don't want to or don't have the money to add a D810 and a few Nikon lenses to our kit (which can rapidly approach $8-10k if you pick up a few lenses)
Speaking of "Fair and Balanced", where *IS* dilbert today? He missed the first page of the high MP sensor thread . . .
Right now Canon are living off past glories, but unless they get off their backsides all their glory will be in the past.
Being a pro generally means earning your living by practising your craft.
Many amateurs are more skilled than most pros.
