Thanks Tom for your feature on G2 (+ comparisons). I would like to bring = in this mailing list the remarks I have posted on Usenet regarding your own articles. Your G2 feature is dated Feb 19. Judging from your own posts here and on Usenet, you made the decision to purchase a M6 system beginning January (98). On top of your 3 G systems, your full Contax SLR system and your fu= ll Canon EOS system (am I missing anything out ?). = You also posted here and in Usenet the fact that, between beginning Janua= ry and last week (?), you've had to send back 3 (three) M6 bodies due to cosmetic defects. I therefore was and remain flabergasted by the self confidence you show = in your articles enabling you to pronounce clear and definitive judgements o= n such complicated and subtle matters as the "optical quality" of M system lenses (for example), without having the gear in your hands for more than= a few days. While I respect some of your descriptions of functionalities and ergono= my of bodies, I have a very hard time taking seriously your other considerations and certainly wish that your future posts and articles (whatever brand is concerned) would be honest enough as to communicate th= e conditions in which you make your "comparative tests". = Please do not take this as a personal attack: none of us are sheltered fr= om the trap you fall into. The Internet is a mighty temptation to act as = judge and party.
