Ken Rockwell: Don't buy a midrange zoom. Carry a fixed 50mm instead, like a pro.

He is not a troll. He is a barker, i.e. a commissioned salesman who uses controversy to drum up page views, which he then converts into affiliate commissions, and makes a *very* comfortable living doing so.

I think you have difficulties to find another person on this planet who is more into Nikon than he is and is spending more time with Nikon, spending more money on Nikon gear than KR.

Thom Hogan, for starters. I went back to Canon after reselling my D3 four years ago (I was tempted to switch back for the D800E, but stayed for the 24-70mm f/2.8L II, which is absolutely stellar), but Thom's site is still must-read for me. KR is just guilty pleasure for entertainment value.

You may not like his ideas, but he is hardly a troll. His Nikon database can only be matched by Nikon itself the way I see it and he is entirely devoted to Nikon. That's not my definition of a troll.

Well, he has taken to extolling Canon of late.
