Here's one that gets on my nerves. "5D/5DII AF sucks!" Often that's posted alone when these cameras are discussed with no other explanation. Compared to what? If you say Nikon then fine, are you prepared to get an entire new set of lenses, flashes etc. to get better AF? If you say 1Ds models do you really want to spend that kind of money?

I don't think anyone who actually owns these cameras will argue that the AF is perfect but to say it sucks is a little over the top IMO.

All the angst, anger and negativity from this forum is now neatly bottled up into one thread.

Well, if digital "purists" would stop saying it, maybe you'll hear less whining.

Photography is dead (eventually) - we'll just shoot video and then just pick the frame you want.

Well, it is for me but I sincerely hope it isn't dead for everyone. How else can I unload all the film developing gear I have in my shed. :lol:

haha this is a great thread, I know its in good fun, but it is very useful for newbies to both photography and this forum.

I wish I would have read this before I made some of my posts now. :D

everything is edited.

even images that are "straight out of the camera."

Also, straight out of the camera doesn't mean anything with the in camera settings that can sharpen and boost contrast and saturation...
