I wonder if I'm technically a fanboy because it is as of today that I have changed from Canon and I'm actually sad! lol,I know I owe Canon no allegiance but I did love my S100 and my previous IXUS 220 but after 2 lens errors,a damaged sensor and having to re send my camera in to Canon to be repaired twice after they damaged my lcd and flash,I'm done.Picked up my new camera today but really sad to not be a Canon user anymore.

Moved to Olympus,got the OMD EM5 12-50mm bundle with the M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8 lens,originally wanted a 650D or 7D to go with my S100 but when it died,decided to get the Olympus instead.

Yah, my dodge neon was a pos so I would never buy a dodge viper. I'll settle for an impala instead.

That doesn't make any sense,reliability is not determined by what type of camera you buy and me choosing a different brand really shouldn't annoy you like it has.I had problems with Canon,I chose a different brand,I did not post a thread bashing Canon in any way.

It doesn't annoy me, I don't know you or care what kind of camera you use nor do I have any particular allegience to Canon despite my current ownership status. I was merely pointing out the lunacy of your aversion to a high end DSLR made by a leader in that category simply because of issues you had with a product from a completely different category in which Canon is not nearly as strong of a competitor. Besides, by your own logic, my opinion shouldn't bother you as much as it does.

I coveted the dodge viper till I got to drive one...what a let down, I was so bummed. Impala's are a killer ride. Nice upgrade from a neon.
