Should Dpreview be aiming reviews more towards the "stupid" class?

    One the comments for the review of the Canon G1X someone stated that
    Dpreview should be more emphatic when reporting on short-comings of
    cameras. In this case, he was referring to the slow focus speed of
    the Canon and how it made it (in his mind) useless for moving
    subjects. Dpreview then said they had been clear about it being
    slow. Or clear enough.
    But I wonder, there is a whole group of people out there for whom they
    print things like "Do not take internally" on bottles of drain cleaner
    so I think the fellow might have a point. Maybe they do need to spell
    things like that out to some people in big, bold type? Of course,
    they still have to sell cameras from Amazon so it might be an issue.

    Your posting about the "stupid" class reminded me ... how are you
    getting along with your new Panasonic GH2?
