This is the purpose of the forum:

  • To maximise traffic to Dpreview in order to maximise advertising revenue.
  • That's it.
  • No really, that's it.

This is not a forum for photographers. Moderation is very poor. Threads are full of testosterone fueled arguments about minor details, or the feature set of current and future cameras.

The truth is that any fool can own a camera. And owning a camera is the entrance fee, though many here do not even own a Nikon FX camera.

The forum should be about problem solving and education. But look at the photo galleries of the most argumentative posters and you see they care little for photography given the low quality of their pictures. If they spent more time learning and less time fighting, they would improve.

Cannot agree more!!!
