The question and it's associated answer:
This was recently opened and answered by a very prominent and respected member of this community. It asks what I see as a very valid general question about finding a specific camera model. The answer addresses this by directing the user to specific resources on an external website, and also gives a bit of context to help in using that website.
This is where I think the crux comes in. The answer reads very much like an advertisement for a specific website. That specific website is run by another very prominent and respected member of this community.
This question may come off as derogatory, but I am really at a loss as to why the answer needs to read so much like an advertisement.
