I like to read what he writes.

My choice.

Of course, clearly your privilege. But out of curiosity, is your definition of "hysterical anti Rockwell" someone who just strongly disagrees with you on this topic? His writing tends to bring out strong opinions and you have yours, others have theirs -- both expressed with conviction. That's hardly hysterical IMHO.

Although Ken Rockwell can be annoying at time, I tend to agree with tabloid. He knows his stuff and is quite opinionated about it. It's not like he makes things up. So you don't like him but I'll give more weight to his reviews than many commenters on this site.

Knows his stuff?  Really?  His comments on the 5DmK3 alone in that article are almost ridiculous.  If you like his stuff, great... everyone is entitled to their opinion.  It's not a matter of "making things up".  More a matter of someone who seems to be more interested in yammering on and "listening to himself talk" (figuratively) than one who speaks with credibility.

Interestingly, there are many folks here who would carry a lot more weight with me in terms of their opinions than what Rockwell has to say.  Again, YMMV.
