Missed Phil Askey's camera reviews write-up... anyone?

It has been long time not seeing any Phil Askey's review...

Although knowing that he is no longer involved in editorial role nowadays, but still missed those old days. Phil Askey's reviews were used to be my favorite reviews to read.

Two signs that always draw my attention:

GONE FISHING (simple yet puzzling, the first sign of one's step towards insanity)

DO NOT WALK. THE GRASS IS RESTING. (confusing, isn't it)

Yes, I miss phil's occasional pithy comments in the forums but also the photos of his wife standing against a backdrop of the London bridge in the review examples of cameras.

Phil still writes all the reviews and forum posts, as he always has. It's just that since 2008 he's been using a series of aliases / pen names (including this one) to make it look like we have more staff.

You must be a Canon guy!

I for one am happy to see the Phil is not doing reviews any longer as his bias toward Canon evolved from mere adulation of Canon to fanboyism argumentum ad nauseam.

Times have changed, and there are other worthy camera brands out there besides Canon with some interesting new designs. I want to read unbiased reviews of these other cameras without Phil's peevish disdain toward those other brands that was so pervasive and predictable in his reviews. Frankly, I am glad he move on and enjoy the other reviewers much more than I ever did Phil.

Best regards,
Jon

well... everyone may have their own interpretation from reading, and to justify everyone taste is always not an easy job for a editor.

although I am a Canon user, I also like SONY TV, PlayStation... NIKON spectacles lens... SAMSUNG monitor... Olympus/Panasonic mirrorless micro compact... Fujifilm FinePix X100... EPSON printer...

I've been reading such useless comments here for years. Apparently Phil is biased towards every single camera maker...apart from Olympus, naturally.

Congratulations, you have won this month's Excrutiatingly Embarrassing award.

Are you referring to a belated and uninteresting comment about mirror less cameras, or your other reply where you blaspheme?
Neither redeems you.
