What's interesting is your efforts to deny the simple truth about how Canon builds its cameras.

No, I'm not denying it,

Erm, well actually you are.

I'm just pointing out how you operate.

All I do is point out the unvarnished (unpainted) truth when someone posts something that is untrue. Mostly its something they honestly think to be true, but isn't. In this case, it is an impression that Canon marketing has worked quite hard to give. Now people take to the truth in different ways. Some accept it in the face of the evidence, some try hard to deny it - though why, I don't know. I never said it was a bad thing, the way Canon builds its cameras, in fact in the main it's a good thing (though I do think Nikon's internal arrangements are generally tidier and more elegant, I doubt that has much real effect on practice).

But you want to insist that 'maybe its just that magnesium painted black looks like plastic'.

LOL, so saying "maybe..." is insisting. Right.

In this context, yes. The simple inference from seeing something that looks like plastic is that it's plastic (and in this case, that is the correct inference) - so, instead of accepting the simple and correct one, you choose to raise a sophisticated alternative. Pretty unlikely as it happens. Why would Canon paint this metal chassis when they paint neither the metal chassis in the 1D series, nor the insides of their metal skin panels?

Get a life.

Funny how some people take against the simple truth.

My point was that you failed to convince people so move on.

I'm amused by people who presume to speak for others in general. The truth of the matter is that I failed to convince a few diehard fanboys who will never be convinced.

Funny that some people don't get that, in other words: no matter how right or wrong you are you're making a laughing stock out of yourself.

The reverse is true. All you're doing is associating yourself with a little clique of fanboys. You can be big amongst them, but their esteem isn't really worth having. I'll always be attacked by the likes of them, because I say things they don't want to be said. For anyone else, the truth is a good thing.
