Well, if the camera phone fulfills all your needs, all the better for you! I wish you all the best.

I'm not sure how you come to that from where we were. Did I imply any of them fulfilled all my needs?

Yes.

My reading of this whole thread is that you try to convince us that a in a 30km/h zone with speed bumps every 10m a Nissan Micra performs as well as a 5 series BWM or a Ferrari. That may be the case, but I fail to see the relevance of this particular test.

Nothing personal, but I just don't get the point you are trying to make.

The point is that there is better use for a few $$$ than buying an old DSLR with an inferior lens.

It depends on ho much it costs, and what it's condition is. I've take thousands of excellent pictures with that exact camera.

In the end it's a tool, you have to know how to implement it appropriately.

I'm not sure anyone is trying to convince you of anything in this thread. Use what you like.

Your analogy is spot-on. But I was not trying to convince anyone; I have merely been expressing my own pre-expectations. I did indeed expect the Beemer to perform better at 30km/h. It took me some convincing to concede that they should perform similarly.

Surely they must be able to do the same thing. They are basically the same, internal combustion engine, a heap of gears and some wheels :-)

Anyways, the right tool for the right job. The Ferrari does not fit in my garage and cannot deal with the potholes around here.

The camera phone did perform better than I expected, see my first post. But note that most people correctly identified the DSLR pic

I'd suggest taking pictures of plucked guitar strings and your cityscape at night.
