Give me a break. The original question was whether one was better than the other. Discussing how they are different (not better or worse) can help someone make a more informed decision regarding which one to pick first (depending on what format they shoot etc), and then they can focus on mastering it with consistency, control and creativity. I'm not talking about debating microsopic differences, but simply being aware of basic, visible properties.
I'm just saying that "pick something and learn to use it" should not be the default answer to technical questions. Otherwise we might as well have only one forum with an automated "learn to use it" response.
