Re: Testaholics... probably very counter productive

I think you are talking absolute.....sense!!! I bought my first camera, yes litteraly my first, 16 months ago, but didn't join DPR till Feb 2012 on the advice of a sales manager at my local Jessops..R.I.P. I had little trouble choosing my camera, a 600D, from John Lewis, who don't stock a huge range to confuse me anyway. I am sure, & I say this with the greatest respect to many of the members of DPR who have helped me enormously since, that I think I would haqve haqd a MUCH harder time choosing if I had joined before buying. There are SO many different opinions of what makes a good camera/lens etc, that I would have been exactly like you, checking even after buying just for conformation that I had not bought a load of ****. I can be pretty in decisive at the best of times, an information overload, [well intended & much apreciated] would have put me in the funny farm.
