It is sad, but posts on this forum have declined to a fraction of their former pace, as Rooz's link to a 2007 thread indicates. It was nice when all those guys were around.

I wasn't surprised, I knew this place had been slowing down and Jeff had been publishing his reviews in DPreview for a while. Last week I saw a statement by DPReview staff that they would be hiring one or two experienced reviewers to their full time staff, and there aren't really that many expereinced camera reviewers around. At that point I pretty much knew.

DPReview will gain a lot from this. It will roughly double the rate at which they review cameras.
