To be honest I am not a "fanboy" just because I pre-ordered the camera. I am not ignoring any bad aspects of this camera, either. I can clearly see the same things you do, but you have to realize that at this time we have nothing but speculation based on pre-production cameras out there. Sorry that you think excitement for this camera equals "fanboy rage" and people are just optimistic about it, or frankly don't care because they do not plan to push shadows 500% to reveal banding. If you expect a flawless camera, it will not happen. I am plenty sure more and more "flaws" will come out once people actually get the camera in their hands, it just depends if those flaws will make it unbearable for you to use or not.
I am not looking to start anything though... Everybody has opinions and I respect what other people have to say, good or bad. Just wanted to figure out why you just have not gone to Nikon yet
