So they are going to charge $80 to change the mount on a $100-200 lens. LOL good luck with that.

Barney do you ever get fed up with people whining about the reviews?

DPR you are giving away gold awards to the majority of cameras now (not counting your "rugged camera" reviews). I'm not saying that the X100s doesn't deserve it but I think you're really diluted the value of a gold award and it's almost like a silver award means its a camera to avoid. You really need to rethink and clearly define your criteria for rating cameras because right now you are sending a lot of mixed messages.

Mikhail Tal: Simon if you based your review choices in part from what you read in the comments and forum, why do you make fun of people who tell you what they want to have reviewed? Saying "Okay we'll check with you next time we want to review something" is being unnecessarily rude to one of your customers, and it discourages the same people whose feedback you claim to be looking for from giving it in the first place.

He writes in the comments making fun of people who ask for DPR to review certain cameras, to be fair it may not be just him but also other writers.

Mikhail Tal: Giving a gold star for this camera is a joke. It's literally the worst current DSLR there is. The lack of articulating screen alone should make it a complete afterthought. The only people who will buy this camera are complete suckers.

Any camera is a "dream to use" if you just leave it on auto and you have never used an articulated screen.

No, this camera is designed for those who have no idea what a ripoff it is.

On DPReview launches GearShop article (327 comments in total)

Isn't there a serious potential conflict of interests here? DPR reviews photography gear, and is now in the business of selling that same gear. How can we be sure that you do not give a product a more favorable review because you have a greater incentive to sell more of it compared to other products?

Volunteering isn't necessarily the most productive use of one's time. For example, feeding one child for a day vs supplying one person of any age with a consumer electronic device they'll use for 2-3 years. Obviously that is just a hypothetical but it demonstrates that feeding impoverished people isn't the best thing for everyone to be doing.
