There is a button labelled 'Next'. When you click it it takes you to page 2. Click it again and it takes you to page 3 and so on and so on. But for some reason this is so difficult that we would find it easier to search two different forums? What's the issue with moving off the first page?

Same sentiments here, but it is possible to miss a thread before pressing the next button, which is obviously not good.

If the forum is updated less frequently then this is less likely to happen, perhaps. For instance, if someone checks in once per day, and it can be reasonably expected that a new thread does not go to page 2 in a day's time, then it's probably easier for that person.

That person will have to check two pages whether the threads are on two pages in one forum or one page each in two forums. If the posting frequency is not exactly divided between lenses and bodies, the likelihood of missing a thread is greater with two forums than with one.
