I fully support jpr2's arguments about the ebbs and flows of posts. I would just like to add the observation that the novelty factor of A7 is the cause of most of the 50 or so threads. Example include "A7 shipping in Canada", "A7 camera of the year", "I've just got my A7". This type of thread will just stop in a month's time and things will be far more balanced.

Yup. The same thing has happened with NEX models too. Eventually balance returns.

...indeed, also... two things ought to be noted:

  • [a] I didn't spot majority of Nex'ing regulars giving their opinion on the motion at hand, esp. those of longest roots here on the forum, to express their [non]secessionist preferences yet;
  • and even more importantly [b] this is a privately owned site, and even 100% one-sided poll (pretty unlikely situation, so just hypothetically) doesn't necessarily mean that vox populi... will forcibly prevail


As usual jpr, you seem to be right on target with the loss for vox populi, at least those of us Nexers who want to separate.

tell me please... what is there to gain from pushing many (maybe most) experienced users away? a Republic of Novices?? was this really your target?
