I personally think that Wienke is a wanker.
Have you ever heard of a typo. I am sure that being in the military you are familiar with mistakes.
Your language and attitude on these posts is very indicative of the top officers I met while I spent a month with the US Marines in Africa. You act like you know everything and there is no other way.
Thank you for calling me a p-e-n-i-s.
Yes, I'm familiar with that sort of typo, it is usually made by Nikon owners (whose cameras have the letter first, and then the number (D1x, D200, D3, etc.) as opposed to Canon's naming convention of number first, then letter (1D, 10D, 20D, 300D). It's an atypical typo for a Canon owner to make.
As to my attitude, I consider myself a practical realist. I call spades spades, and BS BS. I've never disputed that under the right conditions, (mainly low ISO) a MFDB can outperform any DSLR. And I've never questioned the convenience of the larger viewfinder, or the usefulness of a body that can do tilts and shifts for additional focusing flexibility, or the value of the additional megapixels a MFDB has to offer over a DSLR. When MFDB owners have cited those advantages, I haven't questioned those statements, because I know
those statements are true.
But when the MFDB evangelists feel the need to go beyond the obvious and easily demonstrated advantages of MFDB over DSLR and start talking about "dimensionality" and making claims that the difference between systems is obvious even in web JPEGS, I'm going to call the BS what it is, BS. And Feppe's little quiz proved that the claims made were significantly exaggerated.
You jumped into the quiz thread and ridiculed Feppe for the pointlessness of his quiz, when you didn't even understand what was going on, or why. If you're busy and don't want to read the voluminous back story behind the quiz, that's fine, but common sense should suggest that ridiculing something whose purpose is unclear to you is a bad idea, a good way to look silly, and usually rude as well. When I pointed out your lapse in judgment and suggested that you read the back story behind the quiz because it did have a constructive purpose, you continued in your rudeness. And you've continued it here.
I have no aversion to the vigorous debate of a topic, but there's no reason whatsoever to engage in childish ad hominem
name calling. If you think I'm wrong, disprove my argument if you can instead of throwing verbal rotten tomatoes at me. If you don't have the emotional maturity to engage in a civilized discussion even when your pet paradigms are being questioned, then these fora are probably not the right place for you.
