You seem to have a problem with people that don't have the same issues that you have. As you stated you go looking for problems.
Based on reading your posts, one would conclude that every piece of photography equipment that you own is a piece of junk.
I hardly think that is fair to people who come here looking for a fair appraisal of a piece of equipment. Your approach seem to be to trash everything and assume that just because you have an issue with something, everyone else does to, and those that say they don't are liars (I think you implied not telling the truth which is the same thing). You are no keeper of the truth.
If one, 2 or 10 people report a problem, that doesn't mean the thousands of similar pieces of equipment out there are junk.
Brian isn't the only one you need to address you comments to.
Give the tone this thread is taking, (and I admit I am now contributing to it because I cannot let this slide) I think the whole thing ought to be deleted.
