Viewfinder hours, authenticity and Thom's looking at you, Fujifilm...

Thom Hogan's latest commentary on some measures of an 'authentic' photographer had this aside which won't come as news to forum regulars :

Aside: One thing I’ve noticed lately is that I’m spending a lot of time doing post processing for others. About two years ago Nikon’s PR photos started showing that they were being done differently. Most of that was due to less editing time on their part. Virtually every PR photo I’m getting from camera companies these days is not properly managed. Most these days have badly managed highlights and virtually all of their data is well below middle gray and bunched up near black. In some cases, I see inappropriate black levels, too (I’m looking at you Fujifilm). Sometimes I even see color casts. Come on guys, you’re camera companies; someone there must know how to create quality images.
