Let's start with what I did not:

I didn't sleep with your wife.

I did not insult or attack you or your family.

I did not even say that mirrorless cameras are not a good choice!

I'm shocked by some of the responses. I'm shocked that the reaction to a small post can cause such reactions. It seems that on the internet all is possible and people forget about everything they ever learned about communication style and social interaction.

It also seems that some posters ( not all ) define their-self over the stuff they buy. If I like something ( and I like my X Pro-1 or X100 or NEX 5 a lot ) and somebody else says this is not the best thing ever made my little world would not fall apart.

I think I need a break.

Joachim, I hope I was clear (probably in a rambling way) that while I disagreed with some of your examples I understood the central core of your message / blog post (DSLRs are not dead) and broadly agreed with it. I also found some of the other responses offensive/rude in that they seemed to treat your post like that of a troll/shill who never posts here (which is patently untrue). It is possible to disagree on examples and points without having to be rude.

In any event, I for one enjoy your posts (including the ones that link to your blog) whether I agree with them or not (in fact that is irrelevant, they are interesting to read) and hope you continue to post here.
