Ok.

It seems like I hit the nail on the head and that hurts. I also checked you flickr link now and it looks like you are using a lot of auto mode and never want more DOF, only less. All you images are taken wide open (or near) with the 50/1.4G and it looks like you are only using AWB, which is why the yellow color cast in your images, so typical for Nikon.

In other words, your arguments for the manual mode was a bit lame and indeed snobbish, you are not really doing what you are preaching. You are also a bit too young to have ever needed to use film or a slide rule. In fact, I don't think you ever did any of that.

Oh, and yes, I prefer shallow depth in portraits.  Sorry.  That's my POV.  Because you don't feel the same doesn't make you more correct.  I would look at some of your shots to make reviews...but it seems the only thing I can find is what you post here...which seems to be nothing but tech demos to prove yourself right in discussions.
