Patrick McMahon: I paid much more than 3k for mine because he was worth it.

That being said, it is hard to believe that a photographer would be so incensed by a craigslist complaint as to respond in such detail. Clearly the woman cannot afford the photographer she wants and is venting.

Does this photographer spend hours in bathroom stalls scrawling response to each sophmoric comment? Wow, excellent response? It is like bragging you just beat up a pre-schooler... In the land of the blind...

The original poster will no-doubt hire a "semi-pro" photograper for less than $1k as there is a plethora of them today...

True, but "proper" research proves very valuable. Basing worth on price is precisely what the original replyer, exalted by dpreview, is arguing by inference.

I am suprised by what many people deem sufficient research before paying for a service or product.

Patrick McMahon: Interesting, but I have never read this as an "if not this- than that." It is simply a new format camera and I am sure in time many slr owners will carry one rather than their G11's, p7000, etc. It is not at all comparable to the shift from film to digital in my opinion.

@ Mike, I just don't see it as a "you have to switch" development. Again, it is a new format camera which I believe many slr users will find as a compliment. There will certainly be people who chose one or the other, but that goes on everyday between formats.

On Flamingo in the Rest challenge (4 comments in total)

Wonderful. And congratulations! It jumped out at me when I first entered. I am happy to say that I was one of the 2, 5 star votes. Further evidence that the camera does not make the photo, the photographer does. Well done!
