    The DSLR production doldrums continue to plague camera sites.
    So the barrel bottom scraping continues. Why doesn't Dpreview test
    medium format? Car magazines test Ferraris, even though few will ever
    own them.

    A guy walks into a bar and loudly proclaims, "All seismologists are
    assholes!"

    Rich is sitting at the bar, and he protests, "I resent that comment,
    Sir!"

    The guy asks, "Why, are you a seismologist?"

    Rich says, "No. I'm an asshole!"

    And yet none of you answered the question, why not test medium format
    cameras?

    I would think that most who purchase the high end boxes do a lot of research
    and testing on their own.
