I don't see the real purpose of these threads specially when you can see that 90% of these photographs are heavily post processed and you cannot see anymore if they come from this or this camera.
These thread can be interesting ONLY if the photograph are straight out of the camera or/and processed by the camera itself with special option or personal set up to see how the camera do it and the result given by a kind of camera, but actually it's too much Post processed in LR/Photoshop to see something about the camera itself ...
Except that these threads have a lot more than just sample photos in them. They're there to discuss those particular models. I find them extremely helpful, instead of having a billion "which camera?" threads people should go and poke around in those threads and decide for themselves. Or say you have a particular issue with a feature on your model, post that question in the thread for that model and you'll likely get an answer much faster without "cluttering" the sub-forums.
They're also great for showing new members that you don't need the latest and greatest model to take great photos. The rebel threads are full of just as many amazing images as the 5Diii thread imo.
I don't get why we need a thread complaining about there being too many threads... seems kinda ridiculous and redundant to me... 9/10 threads on this section of the forum are repeated questions, so what's the big deal?
It's a forum, people are here to discuss, if you don't like the topic, move along.
