Prediction: Ken Rockwell proves his hypocrisy once and for all
Jul 21, 2012

I'm willing to bet youi'll hear from Ken Rockwell just how awesome and amazing and innovative and super Canon's NEX clone is on Monday when it's announced, even though from all appearances it's just a Sony NEX ripoff (no viewfinder, spartan controls, pathetic grip). This will prove beyond a doubt that Ken Rockwell is nothing more than a Canikon/Fuji fanboy who judges a camera first and foremost by the name on the front of it, thereby demonstrating a complete lack of credibility when it comes to talking about any camera.

Up until now he's been able to use the excuse of not liking a certain tyupe of technology like mirrorless or Sony SLT, and Nikon 1 was such a total overpriced bust that it was easy for him to ignore. However his biases against Sony and Micro 4/3 have always been strongly suspected, even more so when he completely ignored the OM-D E-M5 and his only comment about the RX100 was that Sony's marketing was full of lies. For two years he's been staring at the NEX system trying to pretend with a straight face that it doesn't exist. Of course he nearly fell over himself bowing in praise to the Fuji X100 and X-Pro1, for no other reason than Fuji made good film 20 years ago that he pretends is still relevant today.

Now when he exults over Canon's three-years-too-late mirrorless camera, it will leave no doubt that his allegiances lie with the brand of the camera rather than the pictures it can take. For a guy who prattles on that your camera doesn't matter, this will be the ultimate display of hypocrisy and the total destruction of his credibility. On Monday, the second he opens his mouth to praise Canon, his time as a barely relevant commentator on cameras will be OVER!

Goodbye Ken, and thanks for all the memories of you embarrassing yourself.
