Question for falconeye on his FF report.

The effect is real and can negatively impact the daily work of a photographer. On the other hand, it is possible to run into a low light tungsten situation without the problem.
No doubt a great effort and lots of time devoted to this, and thanks for that.. but could this statement not have also been written as

"The effect is real but may not negatively impact the daily work of a photographer. It is possible to run into a low light tungsten situation without the problem."

ANd to put this into context of what percentage of the average photographers work this might affect? As I just posted in another thread, the effect on me of this problem is zero. I work mostly outdoors, almost always in available light. I suspect that this is a relatively isolated problem that affects very few professional photographers and even fewer amateurs. But hey, I'm not the expert.

I'm always leery of technical reports of limited focus and relatively obscure problems being taken way out of context by undiscerning users.

This doesn't need a new thread. Seems like a reasonable question to ask in Falk's thread though.
