Hi Rick. I always read and enjoy your posts.

I think some of us are more exacting about some things and some are more exacting about others. We also use our equipment in different ways. So, our mileage on different brands and features may vary. I don't worry too much about dust when I change lenses, but I do want a camera that will work (including focusing accurately) when I pick it up and do so in a reliable way with non-quirky results (e.g. misfocuses, odd skin tones, or grease splattered on the sensor).

You wrote some other good stuff but this goes to the core of the facts as I have observed them with the added bonus of you having written it better than I have or would have.

But, this disinformation campaign (to be diplomatic, it's actually much worse than that) run by a few rabid fanbois gets wearisome.

By the way, thanks for the kind words. Like I conduct my gear acquisitions, my goal in these forums to provide a balanced response to threads I see being taken sideways by fanbois or trolls. It's all fabulous equipment but with room to improve know what I mean?

Thanks very much, Rick. I do think that one of the things that is easy to forget is that different things are important to different users. I am struggling with the issue of what is important to me as I try to choose between the Sigma 35 1.4 ART and the Canon 35mm f/2 IS. Though I must say that the new Samyang 24mm tilt/shift is making my wallet try to hide.

BTW, my post erroneously referenced a new small Canon ff--it is of course a smaller APS-C, to rival the mirrorless cameras out there. But I wouldn't be surprised, if the APS-C version  succeeds in the market, if it heralds a smaller ff dslr in the future.
