Too many "that's nonsense" posts. Please show others some respect

Yet he keeps on posting in these threads the same nonsense. So, best to point out he is writing nonsense, but educating him seems a lost cause. He will simply disregard any valid point.

Why can't we all be friends without having to litter many posts with "you speak nonsense"? Just a few examples from you (in many different fora - Canon, Nikon, Olympus, etc.):

"That is nonsense":



"Still nonsense":



"Lots of nonsense being written":


"Yay more nonsense":

"That is just pure nonsense":

The following query on google returns the max number of hits that google displays in their search results: " brightcolours nonsense" - which is just an indication on how many times you have put down others with the word "nonsense". You may be right (or may not be) - however please start being civil and express disagreements with less strong words and less arrogantly. Would you be saying "your point is nonsense" so many times in person rather than under the anonymity provided to you by the internet? If yes - I wish those in your contact some patience & peace.

Grevture has been making good points & good photo to prove his point and I acknowledge them - while not being fully convinced that the Nikon F-mount is so small that it cannot have an f/1.2 autofocus lens (albeit different design than the Canon version). I have also agreed to some of the points. He also has rightly stated/agreed that it may be possible to make an 85mm f/1.2 lens in the F-mount - but may be too expensive to be worth it.
