Re: Agree, it's a tough playing field.

Sure, I'm telling you about how the gear performs in my experience as a commercial photographer. If it doesn't work, then it doesn't pay the bills and gets tossed pretty damn quickly. What you find important may be different, and I'm not questioning that. A forum is about sharing opinions and getting information. If you disagree, that's fine, but there's no need to be hostile about it - especially after it's taken two days of unpaid work to get this review out.

Wait, this isn't a gear forum where people talk about the gear and the specs and how things perform?

You seem to like to engage in flamewars and come across as having an axe to grind. The OP is being very reasonable and you just keep attacking despite his having addressed your points and stated his neutrality on brands and cameras. Why do you care so much?

This is an utterly poor argument. I've had my share of flamewars against the hipsters of the X100 forum, but yours is equally poor. Here, as well as in the news comments.
