Folks, Huff is a professional photographer. Respect what he says. You are probably just a frustrated amateur, with a real job, that has no business saying which camera is better.
In fact, I suggest all posters self identify, you know like Phd's do. " Joe Pixel, PP". That way we can just read what real pros think rather than all the poser stuff.
Huff is not a professional photographer and in fact states this many times in his reviews. He is a photo enthusiast who was able to turn his blog into a living. Does having a website make one a pro these days ?
Does it really matter though if one is a professional or not ? I earn my living solely through photography, primarily sports and corporate work, but that hardy makes me a better photographer than many people here who are amateurs. I might have a bit more know how in what it takes to cover an NFL game, how to work with a 15 minute deadline to edit and caption per wire service requirements etc but as far as creativity and vision there are many here that I think I can't even come close to. Maybe I could talk more about the D3s vs D4 as I use them day in and day out, but for casual usage cameras such as the RX1, I use them the same way as anyone else, to take pictures when out on a walk around town, on vacation etc. What I do for a living really has very little bearing on this, nor does it give me any more or less ability to judge things like native sharpness.
I have however returned to graduate school for a doctorate so at least I'll have another way to identify myself
