I've just browsed through this thread purely for entertainment.
I also read KRs blog for the same reason. He's a professional blogger, not a pro photographer. He occasionally creates a nice image and sometimes slips in some profound thoughts about photography.
He's a photography enthusiast writing for his peers. Not for the serious photographers here on LL.
His reviews are hardly scientific, but if enjoys some piece of equipment, maybe there's something to it?
Anyways guys, thanks for helping me while a way half an hour today!!!
