I rarely read the forum so I have not read anything of mentioned "situation", but I want to chime in with thanks to Mr. Reichmann regarding another matter.
Since I stated dealing with the photographic online world, this blog is the only place left wich I regularly read. To me it is the single most efficient place for camera reviews. The images in the reviews, over the time, are a basically a photographic course, wich speaks for itself, not to mention the dedicated articles. Amazing value for free, and the only forum I regularly recommend.
While often "bad" aspects tend to get more attention (nothing against that, such is life) I think it doesnt hurt to also point out what is good.
