I guess multiplication of a problem tends to make it more clearly perceivable.

Oh - I wouldn't be so certain about that at all. I suspect there are many that are simply holding their tongues.

What I find funny is that these threads pop-up every time there is a new camera that is released and it's not a 1D. LOL!

The forum gets busy for six months with talk about the new body, and all the 1D shooters get shirty that they need to "wade through posts" to read one of the dozen or so 1D threads that have been posted lately.

Then, when things get back to normal, everything is OK again! Hehe!

Wrong. Many 1D users simply left. I was one of them. I last took a look as the 1DX was coming out in an effort to research a few issues I had heard about on other forums...the forums that I began spending my time on instead of DPR.

This forum became loaded with newbies asking unbelievably basic questions. The 1D forum was a place people with advanced knowledge would visit to learn and find answers to questions from peers...in addition to answering questions for others.

Like I said in a reply above, the 5D has become a camera of choice for many professionals and perhaps it now belongs in the same forum with the 1D. However, the 6D absolutely does not.
