    I am sorry XaiLo

I just get very frustrated by people defending their purchases here, it becomes emotional. I bought a XXX therefore it's the greatest, it's a fact! I guess I get tired of people spitting out eroneous information as fact. Many of the statements made weren't fact, and were just opinion. I try to back my information up with review information from several sources. What got my hackles up the most was JTLs statement:

    Silly for me to not have included it in my post. A simple preface of IMO to that statement would have changed the whole tone of it. The reviewers have handled hundreds of cameras and they DO know what they are talking about, certainly more than me or JTL who has owned the camera for only a week. Hence the reason for the research. Unfortunately many come here and ask which camera should I buy? And far too often the answer is "mine, mine mine because of course, I would only buy the best!"
    The S3 is a fine camera and does everything the S2 does and a little more. There are many out there that may be on a budget and a camera that does 95% of what the S3 for $100 less may have a lot of appeal to them.

    No Problem TenD, your quite right and where is the guy that hijacked my thread LOL. I have no problem recommending either, but in reality it boils down to the individual. It would probably be more helpful if they knew what they were going to do with it. But most of the time we operate in the world of the unknown it's hard to say x user will be open or closed to exploring x possibility for x situation, so therefore x is the correct answer. If that made any sense. Any way thanks for the compliment. I hope this x gets better LOL...
    I thought about who I am... and realized I was an
    unformed, unreconciled imagery, without "GOD"


    NikonD?
    and some other Nikon stuff
