Enough with the comparisons!

Can we stop with this already? How many more times do we need to debate the merits of this camera vs that camera — the S95 vs the LX5, the G12 vs the P700, and on and on and on?

Anyone trying to decide between Cameras A, B and C need only check their specs in the Buying Guide's side-by-side comparison, read the reviews of them if they've been reviewed, or else simply look at various sample photos posted by users.

Most of the requests for advice about whether to buy this model or that one are about as significant as "How are ya?" And most of the replies are less about objectively weighing the cameras' competing features than about defending the writers' own preferences, already exercised — "I chose this, therefore you should too."

We could discourage much of this silliness by merely directing any further such posters to the Buying Guide and declining further dialogue.
