    Dpreview is owned by Amazon.com.
    Amazon.com is an authorized Canon dealer! SURPRISE!

    How long do you think they can write the truth about Canon, before Amazon
    pulls the plug?

    So please, in the future, if you try to tell how good or bad any camera is:
    don't use DPreview as a reliable source of information.

    A crack addict has more credibility...

    I asked my neighbor for advice, but he still uses a Polaroid.

  3. You used a DPreview yourself as a good source of information a
    couple of days ago, but that was in a Dutch group....
    Even more than you.....

    Man you're way out of focus. But Amazon are authorised dealers for most
    brands of everything... Now go and get your flange distance fixed.

    Canon 450D value number: 8,5 and Highly Recommended
    Sony A350 value number 9 and just Recommended

    So what has more value is less recommended?

    And you think I'm funny....

  7. Are they Sony dealers as well or are you just a retard?

    Guess what brand shows up 15 times in the top 25 bestseller list, genius!

    You are abstracting one figure from many and saying it defines the whole
    review/camera. Value is only one part of the equation. Eg they give IQ=9 for
    450 and IQ=8 for A350. Using your linear thinking and that surely a camera
    is all about IQ, then the 450 deserves HR and the A350 derves R. But of
    ocurse it is more complex than that. You need to see that DPR is not the
    final word on anything. There are many other sites and they don't all agree.
    You have to read around and tie that in woth your own needs and wants and
    pocket to arrive at what is best for YOU. If the A350 suits you, then go for

    In any case, since you disparage DPR so much, why do you bother to give any
    credence to their review?

    Why would I bother answering anyone who just before called me a dickhead?

    But you just did... Whatever, you are acting like one. Go and take some
    shots and stop being so negative. If you have an A350, enjoy it. :)

    they sell nikon, sony, pentax, even sigma cameras. surprise!
    there is no plug to pull. dpreview is independent, even though amazon
    owns them. phil has repeatedly said this (not that you believe it).
    in other words:

    reviews with which i disagree are very biased; reviews that say what i
    want them to say are reliable.

    same crap over there too:

    They're an authorized dealer for most camera makers, moron.
    You really are an insecure little loser to have so much of your
    identity wrapped up in a brand name.

    By that reckonning UEFA EURO 2008 is bogus, too. After all, Canon is
    an official sponsor.

    Pity for you - Portugal has done well so far.
