Points well taken. These forums are a fun place to compare and discuss gear, but i wonder how many people value the technical aspects of a camera over the craft itself. It just bugs me when people fill up the forums with nitpicking over 100% crops. I am not alone in this universe with that thought.

"it is incredibly groundless and condescending to assume that participants have not resolved such higher level problems to their own satisfaction elsewhere before spending time here to discuss gear and therefore need this so-called 'advice' which is conventional wisdom at best more likely wisdom-free cliché shoved onto their faces. "

Really ? . There are more of those people who never resolved higher level problems.. than you think.

How many people bought the best gear without really understanding how to use it.. I've crossed paths with many of those. How many people buy expensive gear because it 'looks cool' and will impress their friends.or just because they can afford it..

And in shouting capital letters no less."

my apologies.. should have been underlined, rather than upper-cased.
