We live in an age where ever blogger with B&H or Amazon Buy It Here links can pretend they're some kind of expert.  For KR, I stopped visiting his site years ago when he wrote that lens hoods are a waste of time, and that he always keeps his lens hoods in the drawer and uses a hat to shield the sun instead.

Writing the tired "use a fast fifty instead of a zoom" is one thing, giving out bad shooting tips is another.
