Shall we do this line by line?Actually, you wanted me to illuminate. As dominant as you may be, I don't obey your riding crop.
There was no debate regarding pose vs pretend. Same thing.
Yup, you hoped the R3 would compete with the Sony. Really, you didn't. That's just your troll talking point.
You stated originally very boldly "That's the coming R1", which it may well be, but we don't know that, I certainly don't. Yes, I set a challenge, which was to back up your bold assertion with some facts. You haven't. Can you? Or are you the one pretending to know more?
Here you state pose vs pretend. Same thing. Erm, not so fast, you are changing words again to suit your (changing) argument. You originally stated pretender and poser. These are very clearly NOT the same thing. If you are a pretender you are entering in an imaginative game or fantasy, while a poser would be behaving affectedly in order to impress others.
Lastly you claim I hope the R3 would compete with the Sony, but "oh no, wait a minute" I didn't really. Erm, news flash I kinda was hoping the R3 would be more competitive (in the megapixel count, with the Sony). Just playing in straight.
So let's just refresh ourselves of my post (MY VERY FIRST POST ON THIS SITE BTW) which caused you to use words such as "pretender", "poser" and latterly "troll".
As a wildlife photographer who's been using 1 Series for several years, and just getting the R5 and discovering what 45mp can do, I really don't see a wildlife need for effectively an R6 in a pro body. Canon used to do 2 flavours of 1 series, low res for sports and hi-res for fashion/wildlife etc. I guess I was sort of hoping with the Sony A1 doing 'everything', Canon was going to try and compete.
It's hardly an offensive first post is it? Or is it?
