"A stupid company's lens..." Pardon me, but just what are you saying?

Perhaps you could re-read anotherMike's and others attempts to educate you here. There are technological trade-offs between certain OOF rendering goals and image sharpness.

You reject "out of hand" argument that does not suit you, e.g. screwdrivers are tools for tradesmen just like lenses are tools for photographers.

And now you are calling one of the two great camera companies stupid?

Auf Wiedersehen!


@TQGroup: Just in case you're interested before saying auf Wiedersehen: Nikon is a company, and not my religion. I'm not really emotionally touched if someone dismisses a product that a company makes and that I happen to own. It's a strange phenomenon how people actually defend companies and their products if someone complains about them. This is a phenomenon that Apple managed to excel at. Well, I don't care about a company – it's not my family or close friends. Neither do I care if someone calls a company, a corporate unit, stupid. As I can read from you, you treat that differently.

I liked a lot of your review but ironically, it's just like the Nikkor you love to disparage. It did/said many things well but overall, it was let down by your tone and bias, making it a truly stupid review.

Are you unable to convey the same information without coming across as an immature twit that's out to use insulting, disparaging adjectives that seem designed to be shocking and controversial, spreading your name and blog the way a devious marketing expert might recommend? Am I correct in guessing that you've read some of Zack Arias's blog articles? Not quite the same since he avoids the technical details that you delve into but similar enough in tone.
