all of you guys talking about prints... that's old school. the future will be 10k+ displays. If your old pics are important to you now, then its' a logical assumption your present day pics will be valuable to you in the future.

lots of criticism against northrup but he backs up his points with data very often. he does double blind tests on his statements and reveals the data. (see preferred sensor) No all camera opinions are equal. Also, he will criticize cameras which can be very unpopular; but ultimately very good for the industry.

which toehr reviewer has the balls to straight tell you the best value bodies. it was the d850. then it changed to a7r3 and a73. Jared, I consider a shill, he doens't say anything negative about cameras.

he's also no zealot he's quick to criticize the adapted AF of canon on sony; which deserves heat; and sonys newest animal af.

I am surprised by the heat about Tony Northrup. I for one have found his reviews useful. Sure he makes a living off of these videos as do a raft of people but its also providing a service for free. Take it or leave it really. Don't like him then watch someone elses reviews or none at all.
