Summary of Reactions to Popular Online DSLR Reviews

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1022&message=37629901

A quick roundup :

  • First there will be the thread, even before anyone has read through the review, that says nothing else than "Hey, the review is online" : if everyone that wants to say that, does it in one thread, we will save a rainforest of identical threads.

  • Then there is the thread for those that actually read through the review and want to indicate small factual errors to the reviewers.

  • Then there is the thread for those that want to applaud DPR for a fair review.

  • Then there is the thread for those that want tot accuse DPR of bias.

  • A subthread can be started for the conspiracy-theories.

  • Then there is the thread for those questioning DPR's methodology in testing (subthreads for focus speed, focus accuracy, ISO pixel peeping etc).

  • Then there is the thread for those who want to complain about which cameras should be included in or excluded from comparative tests.

  • Then there is the thread for those that want to go into detail about Awards being awarded or not awarded (just).

  • Then there is the thread for those who want to debate whether the Pros from the conclusion sheet are really Pros, or whether the Cons are really Cons (including comparisons with other reviews, where the same item was listed otherwise).

  • Then there is the thread for those who want to excerpt a small snippet of the review (either a positive or a negative remark) and pull it out of context.

  • Then there is the thread for those who feel reinforced in their decision to buy an E-5 (of for having already done so).

  • Then there is the thread for those who feel reinforced in their decision to wait for a price drop.

  • Then there is the thread for those who feel reinforced in their decision not to buy an E5.

  • Then there is the thread for those who state that one should never look at a camera on its own, but at the whole system it is part of.

  • Then there is the thread for those who say the review of the individual camera is pointless because the system as a whole is dying/dead.

  • Then there is the thread for those who want to say they don't care.

  • And finally a thread for those who say that a picture says more than a thousand words.


Really Very NICE!~ :-D
