Why does anyone even still mention that person?
What is truth?

Why does anyone still say "why does anyone still [mention,listen to,talk about] that person"?

lol ... sorry, just poking fun. I find all the KR bashing amusing.

He's become a Fuji X100/XPro1 convert, and makes the fair point that DSLRs are still stuck in the dark ages. True enough, but I have an X100 and spent the weekend with it (didn't bring the 5DmkII on purpose) to see how it did. A thousand shots later and probably half of them are out of focus. As much as the 5DmkII AF sucks, it's lightyears beyond Fuji.

Maybe I should upgrade to the III and get even better AF, and semi-silent mode ...

I still do not give him much credibility. But he has always loves the C1,C2 settings and he complains the Nikon took them away, plus he complains about the high mega pixels which is the most consistant issue of the Nikon I have heard among working pros.

This individual falls into the category of the more you "diss" him, the more publicity you give him, the more he appears on search engines, the more hits on his site you give him, and as a result - the more income you give him.

Maybe it would be best for the CR guy to install a filter to reject any post with the words "Ken" or "Rockwell" lol ;D.

Well, he gets free advertising everytime someone posts his name.  Google and the search engines picks it up.  However, it only seems fair to give him some promotion, since he gets so much bashing.

This line:

When you shoot for a living, you spend as little time in front of a screen as possible, another reason I cannot read eMail.

made my day.

Maybe thats why he has failed to respond to the email I sent him weeks ago.  I'm going to start using this excuse for all my businesses when people complain about me not answering emails (also, how exactly does shooting pictures of your kids on easter qualify for this statement)...  Fuckin KR, you so crazy.

I have a 98% in focus rate on my X100 so I have to disagree.

I have a 98.01% in focus rate on my 5D3 when it's in focus, so I have to disagree.
