I've been away for awhile and am catching up. I'm surprised and disappointed in how people who disagree with Mr. Zimmermann have behaved here. I don't know him personally, but we've been on some of the same forums over the years. He's always struck me as knowledgable and reasonable, and I don't remember a time that he posted mis-information. Moreover, in this thread he cited pretty good reasons for his statements, much of it manufacturers's own data. Sure he may be mistaken, but no one on the other side has presented any useful evidence whatsoever. And since this thread is about a replacement for Technical Pan, talking about resolution, fine grain, and sprectral response are perfectly in order. If some of you don't want to talk about it, why not get some sleep. Yawning isn't polite.
