Agree with Collin.

(Although I would not say Ricardo and I seldom see eye to eye. I believe we can say that we allow eachother the latitude of our separate opinions. Sometimes they coincide. Not often. But I don't mind.)

I don't always understand Ricardo's reasoning and I don't always share his opinion, but I never understand him being attacked for voicing it.

Roel, when someone's opinion is based on intentionally skewing what is said in an article, arguing points the author never brought up and resorting to hyperbole to make it seem the author is saying something he clearly isn't, then that opinion is no longer valid .

Did Kirk say, or even imply the following?

"So apparently to Kirk Tuck there's not much to shooting an APS-C or FF camera for professional work over an OMD. I am sorry but that's just BS."

No, he didn't. he said that as 4/3 and other mirrorless systems evolve, pros will have less need for aps-c.

Nor did Kirk go in this direction:

"What about ergonomics? You know the kind of thing that can really get in the way of your work when you are using the camera day in and day out? Is an EM5 oh so equal or better than a Nikon D800 for a studio? Really?"

These are just 2 examples of projecting one's own assumptions into statements made by the author, for no better reason than to b* for the sake of b ing.

So let's not try to say that Ricardo is entitled to his opinion if his opinion is based on obfuscation and the twisting of the author's words.

When Ricardo refrains from this practice, which is most of the time, I tend to agree with him myself. But this time around, he's simply trying to build a straw man, without any straw.

Some people operate cameras. Others use them to create images. There is a difference.
