Yes, it would be more than a bit extreme, if he was serious. I assumed he was not.

Actually, I have been taking this entire sub-topic as light humour. Anyone who seriously feels like punishing the OP if it turns out that his info was not accurate, really needs to find something more important to rile up against.

I can't speak for gaweidert, but I'm waiting for something that will enhance my artistic talent and will enable me to see light the way a good photographer sees it. Until then, there isn't much that will improve my images. Existing equipment, with the exception of occasional focus failure, is hardly the weak link.

I haven't been following the progress of mirrorless technology, but if the above quote is valid, it goes to show how much marketing is a factor in the success of a product.

When the Leica Digilux 2/Panasonic DMC-LC1 were released almost 15 years ago, one of the main criticisms was the electronic viewfinder's lag. Various tests were performed that showed how an image seen in the VF at the moment the shutter release is pressed may be slightly imprecise when compared to the actual image obtained. If this problem has not been solved, then I would take much of the current increased popularity of ML as being due to hype.

An English man, an Italian, and a Pole were sitting on a beam of the high rise building they work on, getting ready to have lunch.

The English guy, as he is about to open his lunch box, says, "I hope it's not fish and chips again. I swear, if I get another fish and chips I'm going to kill myself". He opens his lunch, sees it's fish and chips, and good to his word, jumps and kills himself.

The Italian, as he is opening his lunch box, says "I sure hope it's not another spaghetti. I swear, if it's spaghetti, I'm going to kill myself too". He opens his lunch, sees the spaghetti, and jumps to his death.

The Polish guy says to himself "geez, I hope it's not a kielbasa sandwich again. If it is, I'm going to jump too". He opens his lunch, sees the kielbasa, and jumps.

The funerals for the three men were all held together, and the three widows were crying. The English widow says, "oh, if only I knew he was so fed up of fish and chips, I would have given hims something else".

The Italian widow, sobbing loudly says, "and if I knew Gianni was so tired of spaghetti, I would have given him something else too".

The Polish widow says "hey, don't look at me. He made his own lunch".

A young woman in New York was so depressed that she decided to end her life by throwing herself into the ocean. She went down to the docks and was about to leap into the frigid water when a handsome young sailor saw her tottering on the edge of the pier, crying. He took pity on her and said, "Look, you've got a lot to live for. I'm off to Europe in the morning, and if you like, I can stow you away on my ship. I'll take good care of you and bring you food every day." Moving closer, he slipped his arm round her shoulder and added, "I'll keep you happy, and you'll keep me happy."

The girl nodded yes. After all, what did she have to lose? Maybe a fresh start in Europe would give her life new meaning.

That night, the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a lifeboat. From then on, every night he brought her three sandwiches and a piece of fruit, and they made passionate love until dawn.

Three weeks later, during a routine inspection, she was discovered by the captain. "What are you doing here?" the captain asked. "I have an arrangement with one of the sailors," she explained. "I get food and a trip to Europe, and he's screwing me."

"He sure is, lady," the captain said. "This is the Staten Island Ferry."

I hate to say this, but this looks suspiciously like a thermos I pick up in a local Chinese shop for about 10, with "Pentax" added. No way it's worth anywhere near 30.

A little girl asked her father, "Where did people come from?" The father answered, "God made Adam and Eve and they had children and so was all mankind created." Two days later the girl asked her mother the same question. The mother answered, "Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved."

The confused girl returned to her father and said, "Dad how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and mommy said they developed from monkeys?" The father answered, "Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your mother told you about hers."

If you've ever caught yourself constructing a dream to fit some external event while you're sleeping, the following will make sense.

Ralph came home drunk one night, slid into bed beside his sleeping wife, and fell into a deep slumber. He awoke before the Pearly Gates where St.Peter said, "You died in your sleep, Ralph."Ralph was stunned. "I'm dead? No, I can't be! I've got too much to live for. Send me back!" St. Peter said, "I"m sorry, but there"s only one way you can go back, and that is as a chicken". Ralph was devastated, but begged St. Peter to send him to a farm near his home. The next thing he knew, he was covered with feathers, clucking, and pecking the ground.A rooster strolled past. "So, you're the new hen, huh? How's your first day here?" "Not bad," replied Ralph the hen, "but I have this strange feeling inside. Like I'm gonna explode!" "You"re ovulating", explained the rooster. "Don't tell me you've never laid an egg before". "Never," said Ralph. "Well, just relax and let it happen", says the rooster. "It"s no big deal.". Ralph did, and a few uncomfortable seconds later, out popped an egg! Ralph was overcome with emotion as he experienced motherhood. He soon laid another egg -- his joy was overwhelming. As he was about to lay his third egg, he felt a smack on the back of his head, and heard his wife shout, "Dammit, Ralph! Wake up. You're shitting in the bed!"

A guy just got out of his van and retrieved a large grandfather clock that he intends to carry to his new apartment. Just as he is carrying the clock, a drunk stumbles out of a pub and collides with the man and his clock. The man is lying on the sidewalk, with the clock on top of him.

The man yells at the drunk "why don't you watch where you're going?", to which the drunk replies "why don't you ushe a wrishwash like everybody elshe?"

This does not necessarily mean that the EVF is the primary reason for the difference in popularity. It could be because of reduced size and weight. It could be due to available lens selection. It could be because it's Sony. Or because the Sony is more readily available, or promoted by sale people, etc, etc.

Come on, Dan. Just because one is satisfied with one's camera, does not mean that one can't wish for something better in some areas. Otherwise, one could never be happy, because there is always going to be some improvement around the corner.

This little Jewish old man has come down with some illness. He is worried, so he seeks out the best doctor in New York. He has the necessary consultations and treatments, all is taken care of, and he is presented with a $1000 invoice.

The old man looks at the bill and says to the doctor, "you know, $1000 may not be much to you, but for me, an old pensioner, it's a lot of money". The doctor thinks a moment and replies, "OK, let's make it $800".

The old man then says "doctor, I appreciate the gesture, but considering my measly monthly income, $800 is still a substantial sum". The doctor says, "OK, let's make it $600".

The old man says "thank you, doctor, but you do realize that for someone like me, even $600 is not chicken feed". So the doctor, annoyed, says "so can you pay $300?"

The old man replies "oh, bless you, doctor. But I must say that even $300 is an amount that takes me a fair bit of time to accumulate". The doctor, now completely pissed off, says "OK, you win. Let's write off the entire amount, and everything is free. But tell me, when you came to me, you knew that I was one of the most expensive doctors in New York, so why did you choose me?"

The old man replies "when it comes to my health, money is no object".

Despite all the defensive and offensive comments one can find here, there is no evidence that any forum members actually go into deep depression and allow their lives to be destroyed by their dismay at DPR's reporting tactics.

It's entirely possible that members' complaints do not impact their lives as much as your comments imply they do.
