No, they're not savvy enough. Even shop assistants who advise people are not savvy enough.
By definition, masses of people can't be made of experts. It's quite clearly a paradox.
In fact, if we go by the number of units sold, then the 18-55 IS and the 50/1.8 are likely to be considered as the best lenses ever. Or in the same way, if Canon sells more rebels than 1DX, then Rebels are better.
Quite a childish way of reasoning.
Wow, take it to the extremes would you. If you're going to compare sales, then at least do so within the same category. 'Cause by your same reasoning the best cars in the world are the Toyota Corollas and the Honda Civics - forget the Porsches, BMWs, Bentleys, and the like.
And if I recall, wasn't it just recently that someone posted Nikon sales figures besting Canon's to flout Nikon as being better?
I knew it was just a matter of time before someone here responded that Canon sales figures mean nothing. Well Nikonistas, if you can come up with hard, verifiable numbers to back up your claims that most people believe that your Nikons are better, I'm all ears. Until then, sales figures are king.
