that blows away any cat image shot by an Otis owner.
Private, I really do think we all got the point you are making, really, we do, and I'm pretty sure we mostly agree, gear matters yes, but gear alone won't produce a compelling Image, we all get it.
What a few of us take exception to is throw away comments used to reinforce your view, i.e., the comment about Otus owners and their un-compelling Cat Images.
The only person I've seen on CR that owns an Otus & a Cat and has posted those Images, has been Eldar, so it's a reasonable assumption (I know, dangerous ground) that it was Eldar you were referring to, he didn't post the Cat Images because they were compelling images, he posted them because it was probable snowing outside & he was testing his new Otus Lens and posting the images so we could possibly benefit from the knowledge & experience, he could just have easily posted some un-compelling Images of light sources, Oh !!, that's right, he did.
Everything you've said in your Posts on this thread has been reasonable, except the comment above, just not necessary is my Point, it's not about sensitivity, I spent 16 Years in the Army, personal sensitivity is long gone.
As Eldar commented, time to get things back on track.
