View Full Version : Lots of Lens threads out of place

08-30-2005, 01:02 PM
Jeff - I've been known to start a few threads out of place myself, I need to admit that first. But, lately its seems like a lot of Lens threads are popping up in the Canon DSLR form. A majority of them are similar to threads that have been posted in the lens forum . . . ? Not a huge deal, but after a while it starts to clutter things up a bit. I just wanted to bring it to your attention. Keep up the great work - When are you going to start hiring assistants?? LOL

I agree. Unless it's a lens thread that specifically needs to be posted inside the Canon DSLR forum (I can't even think of such a case off the top of my head), then it should be posted in the Lens forum where more users can benefit.

Just a list of recent ones. . .

Those are on the first two pages in the Canon DSLR forum. I undestand that it may be a logical place to ask Canon mount lens questions here, but I feel that due to the Lens forums physical position on the webpage, near the very bottom, it doesn't get used like it should.

Thanks. . .

I agree, there seems to be a lot of threads posted to the wrong forum. Posters might get better responses if put in the right forum. Just my .02.

Maybe I should just nuke the Lenses forum and let lens threads go in the appropriate SLR forum?

If the thread concerns only Nikon, Canon, etc. brand lenses, they should be moved to the appropriate SLR forum. But I feel 3rd party lens topics are more generally useful in the Lenses forum.

Please don't axe the lens forum... Even some of us canon users value George's opinions. We might have to venture into the murky waters of the nikon forums to get them otherwise!

Wow... Thanks. Glad to help. Sorry I don't know more about Canon lenses. :o

I won't trash the lens forum. If you see a thread out of place, please PM me the URL and I'll move it!

Hey guys. Wow some replies. haha. I just figured that it made more sense to have a seperate lens forum as Jeff had originally. A lot of the lens threads that popped up in the Canon SLR forum were nearly identical to a few threads that were concurrently active in the lens forum. However, I do agree that it also makes sense to have Canon mount lens threads in the Canon SLR forum because that is one of the most talked about accessories or Canon SLR related items. So its sorta a toss up - but I just though since Jeff has an existing lens forum with good, current, active threads going, why not use it ? Third party lens offerings conversations can be contributed by all camps there.

Thanks guys
