While I like comparing several camerasystems and it in itself is no problem, I am personally done with the lithany of the same questions over and over again.

I think this is quite normal given the turnover of users of this forum.

A bit boring for "old hands" but you can skim or skip the thread.

For 8 years now we hear these so called questions: "mFT IQ is not good enough, is it now?" Not really questions, more confirmations. Mostly some absolutistic remarks are put in and when people confront the person for trolling, they are behaving like they are innocent and had no ill intent etc. Might be true, but it is the same old story for years. We know it.

I get this feeling too at times.

But we do not often know who is behind the nickname of the obvious wind ups. Are they a troll, a fan boy, the marketing department of a rival or just a poor nutcase?

How about having real names?

We know it now: whatever happens, mFTs will never be good enough because it will never be as good as APS-c let alone FF. And since it will never change, it is an never ending story.

It does what it was designed to do for very well. I bought into M43 for those areas where it gives me an advantage over another format. Nothing to do with sensor size or perceived image quality.

We can have comparisons here, but once they spiral into the very same thing time and time again we should get rid of it.

Do you feel it is time for our moderators to step up and remove threads to the Open Talk part of the this internet site or the othe rpart (Advice on buying equipment)? Or remove it completely?

I am for a removal to either of the two. What do you think?

Perhaps that padlock should be applied swiftly to some threads when they start to run off the rails.

I follow another M43 forum. There things get locked very quickly when certain concepts and arguments start creep in and things risk getting nasty. The other day at the fist mention of a certain word after 5 replies in a camera comparison thread; Zack! Locked!

Is it your perception that that parrticular forum functions better worse or equal to this one. Are threads there more constructive or would you say we miss some of these threads?
