I joined this forum about 12 years ago. I notice that the caliber of the posts varies with the proximity to a new camera release. When a major upgrade, such as the D700 to D800, occurs there is more useful info here than between releases.

If there is nothing to talk about, people tend to troll and squabble.

Some of us hope that someone will post an intelligent question because it usually leads to useful information. I've learned a lot on this forum over the years. I feel my technical skills have improved because of it.

So, if you have a few questions, be sure you have thought them through. Provide background on skill level, photographic intent, and preferences. You wont get a useful response if you ask what lens to use when you don't say what it is to be used for.

I have also learned a lot. Argumentative posts and/or mild trolling are ok, they add a little spice to the boring days. Now, some get really aggressive now and then, one should just ignore those. Some others seem to love themselves too much and post and post and post about their grand visions, also better to ignore them.
