    Re: In praise of Zuiko

    I can only echo the sentiments above.

    Whilst John and I may disagree on certain matters our disagreement it is always amicable and never personal.

    I particularly enjoy John's well thought out arguments, constructive comments and neutrality.

    Thank you John for all that you do here. I very much hope we can meet up some day.

    Nigel.

      This is somewhat like a lifetime achievement award given on SPOTY, but here, of course, it's richly deserved.

        Agree with all of the above and he is bloody good with a camera in his hand too. More strength to you John.

            That is certainly true!

            I came here from another photographic forum. I won't name and shame but it was run by a weekly magazine aimed at Amateur Photographers. The mods there seemed to behave like Rottweilers in a scrapyard, regularly ridiculing selected forumites to provoke responses that would get them banned or suspended.

            More worryingly, any negative comments made in the direction of Nikon or Canon in particular would result in an instant suspension. I once fell foul of this policy when I mentioned something about a serious lack of foresight on Canikon's part with regard to dust on sensors. The fact that this particular salvo was fired from within the safety of the Olympus camp did nothing to help my defence.

                I think the excellent replies to this thread can be summarised by paraphrasing Gilbert & Sullivan.

                Regards and best wishes for a happy and peaceful New Year to you all.

                    I agree with all the praise that has been posted about John, his very name on this forum ZUIKO conjures up in my mind a very powerful, wise, deep thinking, fair minded interlectual of legendary greek god status, take a bow John
