You should show him this:

Canon were apparently the least reliable while his Sony A900 did fine.

I guess he will say that his dog sledge expeditions of up to 3 months length trump their 2 weeks trip.

He will probably also say that his -48 °C trump their -3 °C.

And I will have no usable defense against that.
