darkref is a dpr moderator. He made the above pertinent statement in reference to Thom in this thread.

See... http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52164561

I agree completely.

Thom makes some good points, but should get back to talking about photography and equipment, on which he is an absolute expert.

His market assessments always smack of someone who thinks they should be more important than they are with the major camera manufacturers. I believe Thom presented some ideas to Nikon a few years back, but has lost his 'special relationship' with them since. Thom also used to post on DPReview regularly but opted out after a suspected disagreement.

It is a shame his ego seems to get in the way occasionally... he is one of the most imformative reviewers out there and a true expert.
