As I'm not involved anymore into the still imagery, and even when I was I used MF only during a very short time because we were shooting only Canons at the studio, wich doesn't give me any credit to actively
participate in a MF forum and should indeed stay gently in the motion forum of this site (and that's what I'll do from now) wich is were my world is.
However, as a reader, this MF forum has always be a great source of inspiration, good imagery that I enjoy to watch, relevant profesional knowledge, and even if I'm not involved into stills anymore, I could find lots of usefull posts worth the Reading for anybody interested in imagery and a general atmosphere of respect.
The wars between systems are not new at all. How many of those threads MR closed in the past when things were going too far and started to be meaningless, you remember? Graphics, bombings of pseudo-scientific stuff, attempts to demozided MF or trying to convince MF users to join the good side of the dslrs force have been on air forever.
However, the tones were very differents, sometimes even ridiculously funy. And all the wars of the past never provoqued such a heartily sick that many of the MF users are experiencing now, and readers like me too. It's because it's everywere now. Not just in special war threads like before but it smells from all pores in all the MF forum.
Now, each time someone posts something here, I'm waiting when will show-up something related with the f.....g bloody Nikon peice of s...t or some sort of dslr magicality to bomb the MF gear and demostrate how crap it is and how corrupted are the vendors etc etc... and a general suspicious on MF...That's just sick.
And now, hoppe I'm wrong, but it seems that Cooter was so fed-up of all this BS and left. Very nice! If people like Coot start to leave this forum, something's very wrong somewhere.
