it just seems that the things that he missed are so obvious to those of us who use these cameras.

If they are obvious, then he does really need to mention them?

Why would users who know these obvious things need to read a review?  

...another example of how he's not understanding his readership was his fixation on the raw file situation... he devoted a bunch of prose to something that most of us don't notice, or are able to work around, in the worst case.

His point is that if you are not discriminating enough to notice these pixel level issues, then why do you really need 36MP? If you read his other articles, he often writes on "maximizing image capture" so he is consistent....

The raw compression issue doesn't affect everything, all of the time, so one could want 36mp and still deal with this occasional irritation.

As for Thom, we all have our biases.  I doubt he was too far off-base. I don't think I'll take the time to read the article though; what interests me more are the reactions to it!
