photo perzon you are one of the most epic posters the dpr forum has ever seen

Anyone who claims to have gotten through 30 cameras in 5 years has no claim to call themselves a "photo person" (however badly they spell it).

Seems to me like a simple case of G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome).
"If I buy a new camera it will make me a better photographer."

Look for another post in 3-4 months (probably less) with a list of reasons as to why the RX100 is not a good camera.

To err is Human. To really foul things up you need a computer.

Seems to me like a simple case of You Don't Understand The Greatness Of photo perzon. I have read through many of photo perzon's threads. They are incredible reads because I can never tell if he is being serious, exaggerating, or just making stuff up. This is a rare mind the likes of which are rarely seen and unfortunately you are unable to grasp this posters brilliance.

I taught at M.I.T. and I know what degrees from there involve, and so Photo Perzon has my respect for that. It ain't easy  getting a degree from M.I.T., the courses are very challenging and the competition is fierce. (I got my own degrees elsewhere.)

You said 4 things that make me not care about any opinion you have.

1. You went through 30 cameras in 5 years

2. You said the RX100's 1" sensor is big.

3. You shoot bird pictures

4. You would rather buy postcards of things than bother with the photographic enjoyment of taking your own picture.

That Sony is a glorified point and shoot for lazy people. Enjoy.

The guy obviously loves cameras

What's the problem? He got back most of the money by reselling them and in return had the opportunity to play with 30 cameras and ultimately discovered the best camera for him. That's a win win in my book.

He comes across as not liking cameras very much and making similar mistakes in his buying repeatly that even with selling up must have cost him thousands.

I don't see any need to abuse him I'd say his post has alot more value as a cautionary tale rather than sound advice for others.

Right on. Seems like he enjoys toying with technology as much as taking photos.
