Rockwell is actually very smart.

For a start he has got us writing about him and those column inches will inevitably produce extra traffic for his site. If that earns him a living then he's got that part right at least.

Second he writes in a manner which is easy to understand for his target market and he expresses an opinion which is exactly what most of his readers want. The anal minutiae that tends to get discussed here ad infinitum is of absolutely no interest to most camera buyers. And he's certainly not boring.

Third, he has more photo equipment experience and knowledge than most here have. And he has his own opinions, which some of you may not agree with, but at least he doesn't simply regurgitate stuff that others have written as fact. As many do here.

Fourth, he can spell, or at least bothers to switch his spell checker on.

Fifth, he cuts through the pretentious crap, which is probably an example many of us could benefit from.

I think the fact that a Ken Rockwell camera review doesn't sound like every DPREview, Camera Labs review or a CNET review angers a lot of people (spelled S-H-E-E-P) in here. I don't agree with everything I read on his site, but then I don't go online to search for a review that validates my own views and my own biases.

Personally I would never by a 70D as its not quite right for what I need in my professional work as a full time photographer.

What I am interested in is the new Canon sensor.....as we are doing now less stills and more videos, due to the fact that publications are now going more and more onto the internet/online.

So when I looked at what Ken wrote about the video side of the 70D he got it right on the button...I can't remember exactly what he wrote , but he was impressed how well the 70D kept the subject in focus (in video mode) whilst the subject was in motion.

The problem with some people is that Ken puts on human face in his writings, which seems to bother some people.....but thats their problem.
