Yes, I got a kick out of his overly dramatic angst over 1/3 stop shutter speed difference making his shots unusable.
Fine, it was obviouslynot made for him but neither are the Canon 5d series either which will come as a major surprise to the tens of thousands of pro and amateur studio strobe and speed light shooters who are getting exactly what they want.
It all seems like such a silly rant that I am sure he will feel embarrassed by it later.
This happens so predictably every time a model comes out that changes anything that a current user of lower model has developed a habit for. The claims of "deal breaker" or "unusable" are coming fast and furious. If the only method they can use to operate the camera are those they have a habit for, why would they ever need to replace their camera they have now? The only one in the world that fits their habits totally is the very one already their hand. There would be no advances at all if manufacturers had to cater to past habits alone.
There is no requirement to upgrade, they have what fits their style now, they should get a good stock or spare parts while they are still available and keep it forever.
We have heard these same emotionally charge objections about moving something or using a different connector with every model release before the camera is even held. A good example was one person who claimed the D600 was unusable because it did not have the AEl/AFl button in the right place but total displacement was only 0.3 inches and proven by a scale overlay of a D300 against a D600 which showed the tiny shift in position to what most would agree was even a better location, slightly. The habits will change with a little time. Any parent of a 5 year old knows this one.
