      One of the most highly regarded mirrorless primes is the Micro 4/3rds Olympus 45mm 1.8 (~$325 on ebay), many buy into the system for this lens, although there are many more excellent lenses for the...

      I believe you were referring to another past discussion which is not related at all to this. But regardless the above is not entirely true. Because the capability does not yet exist to objectively...

      Don't conflate opinions with truth. Truth can exist outside of personal opinions on it.

      I don't like to see a bully shoving their perception down everyone's throat and ridiculing those that...

      That could be an interesting study... Certain artists can command big money for their art merely because they have already made a name for themselves in the industry, and their subsequent works are...

      When did you drive one to know that it is a rip off? Mercedes', even the crappy ones, tend to have a certain heft and quality feel to their controls that is not replicated by knockoff manufactures,...

      Agreed on the NSX, however one could say all cult items are also nerd items but not all nerd items are cult items. Or put another way a cult item is more exclusive in the sense that it has a strong...

      Pretty sure that is a nerd car...

      I would define the distinction as follows

      Nerd Item: Geeks love it but has zero appeal to the opposite sex, and to those not in the "know".

      BMW is unfortunately building what the market wants, so you can't blame the company for societies' lousy taste in high end cars.

      The cheaply built E36 debuted after the point in history when the...

      The problem is, this is a road car where the function of that wing is probably useless at legal speeds and as a road car it looks ridiculous with it on. If they can't get proper aero without tacking...

      Close enough, that 500lbs difference most likely is more influenced by marketing than capacity. E350s have scary enough handling without towing anything, I can only imagine how white my knuckles...

      That may be true in regard to Porsches, but I don't think secondhand owners of Mercedes sedans or the like are especially wealthy and the original owners usually trade them in after a couple of...

      Which is it?




      Not with falsifiable evidence it isn't. Also logic isn't falsifiable, therefore logic isn't real according to you.
