When loyalty to a camera system = absolute blindness

    I can't believe some people. Some newby on the dpreview Olympus group
    posts about a magenta cast in the highlights in images of the Olympus
    E-510, and the KOOKS who guard the forum attack the guy, some with
    logically, but some are off the charts stupid. One poster refutes the
    magenta cast post by posting pictures of his own, but at least FIVE of
    the images SHOW a magenta cast!!! Unbelievable! Purple rocks, purple
    roads!!!

    Look to the image posts from Ben Herrmann about halfway down the
    page.

    It has been well-covered in that forum, to the tune of 103 posts. But
    the same condition afflicts others on this forum. Willful ignorance
    about system flaws and attacks on those who mention them. I just
    thought this example was particularly funny given the "proof" offered
    to the contrary. I can't fathom the reason behind the blindness. For
    instance, I own Olympus and I've never disputed certain truths about
    the brand, such as their high ISO noise and restricted dynamic range.
    You take the good with the bad.

    How does a selection of photos that were shot raw and converted with a
    non-oem raw converter that probably doesn't correctly read w/b metadata
    in the raw file show anything at all? The poster that you refer to
    probably has a poorly calibrated monitor.

    DPReview forums are full of posts like that. Mainly there are posts
    about "sharpness" of lenses and noise at high iso, where tiny images are
    posted, and nothing can be seen.

    Because the forum is moderated, and because the threads are linear
    making it harder for an idiot poster to be flamed in a way that would
    happen on usenet, idiots proliferate.

    It's also a favourite place for shills to hang out.

    Yes(?), same thing, pointing out FLAWS in cameras, not hiding from
    them. Is that a difficult concept for some?

    The poster was attempting to prove that the original poster was wrong,
    that there was no magenta issue with the E-510 results and in fact he
    ended up posting shots that showed clearly there IS a magenta cast
    issue with the camera.
    Agreed 100%, and if you point out to some of them that a 600x800 image
    proves nothing about sharpness, or noise, they go beserk.
    Good point.

    No we live with them and understand that any camera and system will have its
    FLAWS but we choose the one we can live with and then go out and take photos
    rather than having to tell EVERYONE about the flaws from EVERY other system.

    I recall you recently told me to I was a coward and dared me
    to "say that in the dpreview Olympus forum" when I was
    critical of Olympus viewfinders. Maybe you should practice
    what you preach and do the same, instead of regurgitating
    your crap here.

    How does this tie-in with your criticisms of the Olympus system then?

    Aren't you one of the Dpreview Olympus forum Gestapo? Stamping out
    criticism at every turn?
    You know that the forum is gaining notoriety as being a haven for
    rabid, intolerant fanboys, even off dpreview?

    Only ever in answer to your ravings mate. And seeing as how you bought up
    the Oly "system", WTF is it with the design of the strap attachment points
    on the E410, some engineers are effing idiots.
