Re: Just a little follow up...

A long time ago, I found that people who choose a certain brand based on what they feel are good reasons will defend that choice as if they were religious zealots.  It seems to boil down to preserving their self image - as in I couldn't possibly be wrong.

Over many years, I've had many cameras of different brands - as in SLR's from Pentax, Ricoh, Nikon, Minolta, and Olympus and DSLR's from Canon and Nikon.  I'm currently looking seriously at a Sony SLT-57.  Along the way, I've had folks sneer at one of my cameras or another- but never anything as rude and full of himself as your encounter.

I guess A-holes exist in all venues.  The worst I ever encountered personally was on a ski lift.  He had all the "best" gear and was spending the ride denigrating my gear and pointing out how wonderfull his was.  At the top he fell off the chair and they had to stop the lift to disengage him.  I didn't stay to watch and just skiied off down the mountain on my "inferior" skis.
