Re: filmscanners: Bruce Fraser Reviews Nikon 4000ED
Wire - I enjoyed your review of a review - some meaty kiblets for
thought. I too become totally frustrated by reviewers who play it safe to
the extent that you can't tell whether it is a good bit of gear or bad. I
think more often it is because they are not sure enough of their own ground
(and don't want to invoke ire from anywhere including the manufacturer for
mistaken comments) than kowtowing directly to supplier / advertiser
pressure. But maybe not.
