Only AV knows his/her intentions, but it should be understood that his/her questions are valid.
When I started shooting digital capture I thought I was behind the curve, then found in my world I was ahead of the curve but getting information, real unbiased information on anything was difficult.
From the RG forums to this venue, getting monitor calibrations came with answers based on agendas of specialists, representing products, or specialists representing products and their own custom workshops.
Same with printing, converting rgb to cmyk, profiling cameras, buying cameras, using cameras, the list was endless.
Not to paint everyone with the same brush, because some people and information were spot on, but I remember the huge amount of disinformation I received from pre press houses, digital gurus, camera sellers, seminar givers, peripheral sellers, etc.etc. to the point it made your head want to blow.
Just the simple act of converting an rgb file to a cmyk image would open up a 400 reply post that had so many agendas, it would eventually be locked.
Cameras were another story. Only one group (I think head by the digital tech Von Thomas) compared the medium format cameras of the day in one room on a real shoot and only with Von's insistence was a Canon allowed in the testing.
As well meaning as this test was, it still focused on just on small scenario in studio and didn't go into a lot of real world use and back end workflow.
Since that time I've yet to see anything close to that comparison and today is a much different time as a few of the players have consolidated, one (Sinar) has seemed to drop off the map (at least in the U.S.), two new all in one medium format cameras have been introduced, (the leica and the Pentax) both on opposite ends of the price scale and today there is more talk about video and motion than there is more megapixels, so though things are different they are just as complicated.
Sometimes I think we forget that we all stood in the same spot as AV wanting to learn, not make a drastic purchase mistake and of course not go down the wrong learning path.
Since real non biased information is difficult to come by, the only real answer form Mr. AV is to do the tests him/herself in the genre he/she works. This can be expensive and time consuming and is probably the reason most people base their buying decisions on taking a few quick snaps in some dealers showroom.
There is just very few dealers and very few ways to test pentax, leica, Hasselblad, leaf/Phase a Nikon D3x and a 5d2 from one source.
Let's be honest AV's questions are valid and who wouldn't like to have the opportunity to test all this equipment together and draw some kind of conclusion?
