So true Re: This forum isn't interested in facts
In reply to Great British Landscapes, Aug 15, 2012

I posted this comment here, saying good things about the latest Canons and complaining about inflammatory, hyperbolic and extravagant posts:

Then I got this as response:

Go figure!

BTW: my interest in this case is regarding the possibility that Canon may have developed a truly outstanding PDAF that matches CDAF accuracy. That would be awesome. But some here think that is just food for brand wars, claims of superiority, etc. If Canon did it, Nikon will need to respond, that's good for everybody.
