    Don't fall back on his knowledge, don't accept his word as correct..trust his opinions no more than you would trust any opinion of anyone in this forum. It's that simple with him. Don't link his stuff as proof that this thing should be done that way.


    Thank you that is all.

    Didn't Ken Rockwell also review/preview the Nikon D40 before he even laid a finger on it? By virtue of that, i'd steer away from that guy.

    Sorry, since Ken's main audience is mostly Nikon people, I stuck to Nikon guys, im sure viper can mention some good Canon people around the net.

    I don't know anyone on the canon side thats the equivalent of Ken.

    The Luminous landscape is pretty comprehensive and unbiased, though doens't update that often, and alot of the content is geared for serious pros only.

    POTN is a decent Canon board, but stay out of the lens forum, its as bad as FM or DPR

    Agreed. He's a tool. I didn't agree about some of his work, and called him out on it. He responded with "Thanks! I just got the camera".

    WTF. :rolleyes:

    Anyone who's that opinionated needs to be taken with a grain of salt, but he says what he thinks (ok, sometimes he just wanks on about Nikon, but a lot of his technical advice is spot on). And I admire him for that.

    I have Thom Hogan's D80 and D200 books and seriously, it would be hard to beat.

    And you hsould buy them instead of downloading them online, this guy merits the $.
