Can I ask why all of you keep reading his stuff if you do not agree with him, or find some value in his posts? Seriously this is like a bunch of old women arguing that Nancy dies her hair.


In all fairness, as long as Ken has the right to vomit all over the Internet, we have the right to complain about him. It's only fair. It's also nothing like old women clucking about something superficial. He puts himself out there by giving advice and reviews that are blatantly wrong. I feel sorry for the people new to photography that read his literary diahria and just don't know better.

There is a long list of things which you have the right to do, but should probably still avoid.  I made no attempt to involve your rights in the discussion.  Ken makes his living off his website and you guys are free to advertise it to your hearts content. I just think you should consider shopping at the dress barn for a nice blue house dress and consider a blue wig.

I like Ken's lens reviews, and back when I was a Nikon shooter, found them quite helpful, and even spoke to him on the phone a few times about the details.  It has been about five years since, and I don't read it much anymore.  I'd never have read his 5D3 or D800 review if not listed and linked here.

Complaining about complaining is kind of pointless. If you like him and his site, then that's great. We'll agree to disagree on Ken Rockwell.

This thread is officially awesome.  S____ is getting slung around, people are dropping the term bogans (random), memes are being created.  I should write letters to S____ heads more often.

V8 M8,

then I find this gem in his review of the 50mm 1.2

"If you're a regular photographer like me, personally I rarely use middle focal lengths and prefer the convenience of a zoom."

I think he's bipolar :)

Anyone ever seen the videos on youtube where he wonders around B&H like a buffoon, claims that good sports photographers should not need super teles, delcares a EVIL camera has too many buttons and all other sorts of nonsense??

The guy's even more annoying in person. I didn't know that was possible.

I made it 2 mins into that vid and couldn't take it anymore

Nice shot, but it's a bit short on the saturation, mate. That pink collar needs to turn red.

With all the "5D3 vs D800" and "My 5D3 sucks" crap all over the place these days this is by far my favorite thread right now. Does that make me a terrible person?

I hope not.
