Time to put to bed the DSLR v X rivalry. Apples and oranges.

Funny thing is, there is nor rivalry, just crazy Fuji fanboys who think it equals a DSLR in all areas.

I think you need to re-read the posts in this thread and give me an example of where this statement has been made.

I personally object to being called a fanboy of anything, as I have personally owned Canon, Nikon, Panasonic and Fuji bodies. Nobody in this thread has ever tried to best your sacred DSLR, yet you feel the need to troll about the Fuji X-series. I have owned and still own a plethora of gear and I do know a great photographic tool when I use one.

I think you are best to stay clear of this forum as you are clearly irked enough by its content that you feel the need to show your ignorance.

Posts like the one above, comments like "Time for bed little man", suggestions of "You'd argue with your own shadow I think, lol.", when it is clearly you who is looking to argue, are all bad form and tantamount to trolling.

mistermejia created a thread to talk about the X-E1 being too good value to pass up and you used the thread as a platform to bash the camera and to question, amongst other things, my perception of what I have just bought too. You tell me I have compromised, when in fact I have found a camera that excels in many areas. You tell me I am wrong, insinuating that you know better. Arrogance does not make you more right that the next person, but the phrase about empty vessels making more noise, is definitely banging around in my head. If this is the way you want to be perceived, continue trolling.

These are discussion forums, not boards for keyboard warriors who believe themselves more informed than the next member. Sadly, over the years, DPReview forums have gone downhill and have become almost battleground in nature. Coming in with the one liner, "AF doesn't matter when you shoot things that don't move." was clearly designed to wind up this thread, probably with the intention of crashing the thread into an argument over AF. That in my book is trolling.
