Had the poster said, for instance, "I think the 60D has better dynamic range," his statement would have been clearly his opinion. As it is, he made a statement of fact that is incorrect.

There's is no such thing as a statement of fact on an internet forum!

Your statement is interesting. Either it is a statement of fact, in which case it contradicts itself. Or else it's not a statement of fact, in which case it's just your opinion, one with which I disagree. 

Besides it would get quite tedious if folk had to qualify every sentence with "IMO ...", "I think ...", etc. (IMHO).

I prefer to say what I mean and to make it clear whether I am offering an opinion or else stating a matter of fact. I mean, if it's all just opinion, well, it's all a bit worthless, isn't it?

I would like to be able to make a statement of fact such as, "DxO reports that the OM-D has 12.3 EVs of dynamic range", then make a statement of opinion, such as, "for my needs, the OM-D is the best camera currently on the market".

Now, let me ask you, if I said that DxO reports that the OM-D has 12.5 EVs of dynamic range, would you call me a liar (since that's not what they report) or would you excuse it as a difference of opinion?

I simply disagree that there are no statements of fact on an internet forum
