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.

I'm not so sure if "fair" and "ken rockwell" belong in the same post :P!

Don't forget his family is starving (starving!!!! little kids!) and are forced to suffer (suffer!!) in his modest (modest! not grand!!) mansion in the bad neighborhood (so bad!) of La Jolla, CA.  ;D ;)

But hey it does take a certain kind of genius to pull in all that dough from his blog, a regular PT Barnum and crazy.... like a fox and it's not like he is hurting anyone.

He's such a pro he shoots in auto settings and jpg.  Had to smile about his comment about the Xpro1 being better for video as it has inbuilt stereo mic which the 'others will introduce later'.  Anyone not wanting the sound of the autofocus working would be using an external microphone in any case so this case is moot.  While the X pro1 looks to be a great camera, I'd rather not hear the workings of the camera in either mono or stereo!
