    I'm sure it's nice, but I'll stick with my Canon. Haven't read a Pop
    Photo in a while...is 95% of it still the same ads month after month?

    Obviously some camera has to finish on top. Having said that, I did
    read the evaluation and it really lacked any depth. For instance a
    magazine like Consumer Reports which produces a table that shows the
    entire field. All too often the top five are so damn close that any of
    those top choices are fine. I see terms like faster, better, etc but no
    quantification of faster or clearer. So until I see some specific
    quantification it's just noise and I don't care if I drive a D300 or
    not.

    I just notice the selective references to things when they support a
    particular viewpoint versus when they don't.

    Don't waste your money on Consumer Reports. When it comes to cameras,
    they don't know an f-stop from an F-sharp.

    Agree completely but also agree with the previous poster that the top four
    or five are that close that any of them would make you happy and produce an
    outstanding result. Mind you the new D3 looks like it will be a standout for
    a while.

    There are plenty of "camera of the year" awards out there. Which
    would you consider credible?

    None, but certainly nothing by Pop Photo.

    Yabbut, when it comes to which cars' trunks can accommodate a folded
    wheelchair, they're right on. The rest of their stuff surely MUST, by
    extension, be good.

    Seriously, what differentiates one product from another? Why would
    they have more experience with trucks than cameras? Who really knows
    what they have experience with?

    I was not quoting a Consumer Reports evaluation, but using them as an
    example of anyone that rates a product does it on a sliding scale be it
    points or percents and many times the scale at top N are so damn close
    not to make any difference. So if the top rated was 96 out of 100
    whatevers and the next one down was a 95 and then a 94 etc. we are
    talking about amoeba hair apart. Are we on the same page?

  18. Not half as many as loyal Nikon shooters dump their D300 for
    a 40D.
