The DPReview guys have answered the misconceptions in great detail - some misconceptions I've seen you posting in this thread for instance.

They have made their cases to skeptical digital imaging experts (people who are engineers in the field), generally, after much toil and trouble, to those experts' satisfaction, as far as I've seen.

But every few months, the same non-conspiracy boils to the top again, this time with new actors who are acting in good faith and making arguments that seem logical and common sensical, but which are either based on some degree of ignorance regarding the topic, some degree of ignorance about DPReview's testing regimes, or a combination of those things.

The problem is that they've been here before, but the new crops of people who come in and make these arguments every few months don't bother to go back and familiarize themselves with all of the details before coming up with their brilliant arguments that they're simply 100% certain are correct.

So I understand the DPReview team's annoyance at having to deal with this same topic, over and over again, with people who haven't done the hard work to learn the details about the topic and/or the details about how DPReview runs its tests.


Fair enough, tex.  Now me being someone who likes to learn, would you mind setting me straight on the misconceptions I may have helped to perpetrate?
