Taking this question as an example.
First the answer given by "André Carregal" seems appropriate to me and as such I have already upvoted it.
However I'm curious about the community view on the answers by "Johannes Setiabudi", "Grant Palin" and to a lesser degree myself.
I'm going to defend mine by pointing out that the original question concerned the Caplio line and not talk about it further as I'm clearly biased. However I do recognize that what I'm about to say does apply somewhat to my answer.
The other two answers concern me because they recommend a specific product (presumably one the answerer has already invested in) rather than talking about the general category the question ask is looking for or presenting a measured comparison of cameras in that category.
So I just wanted to get a clarification on how the community feels about recommendations like this.
