The 'many conflicting opinions' that are apparent here are not necessarily objective. This is DPreview, some come here to entertain themselves, peep at pixels, and prognosticate about specifications. This is what they value about photography. They may or may not make pictures. But they love to stir the pot. Some have speculated that they are bored adolescents who enjoy melodrama.

In my view, DPreview forums are a poor place for researching photo tools. Signal to noise here is poor. When it comes to raw conversion, from my tests, much of the criticism is overly negative and based primarily on pixel peeping, not print making.

Point well taken. I often wonder what the (mega-)pixel neurotics are up to if they don't print large, as some of them openly admit, but then to each one his/her own. If someone thinks he or she needs a D800E to shoot people in the back and call it 'street photography' so be it. In the end that's what keeps another boat afloat, not necessarily this vessel.

Regarding recurring topics/questions (RAW & Co.) ... how about introducing sticky threads and/or FAQs. It works in other parts of the web and could give the mods something meaningful to do
