It's not that I don't like Focus just on principle or unproven bias, they've had plenty of opportunity since last summer to prove to me and my testing staff that they have a solid product and, have solid support. Both have been proven to have major weaknesses which is why we unanimously decided not to use any Focus products.

With all other companies we deal with that produce "pro" level products they have technical staff that knows every in and out about their products, they have detailed info about unit operation readily available (Jan with Panny and the long-available HVX manual online is a perfect example) and accessories designed for each unit play well with each other.

Focus on the other hand, has less-than-detailed info about unit operation available to the consumer, their own tech staff - including the "product specialist" isn't 100% certain about how all the functions work and they still haven't fully thought through accessory compatibility within their own line of products. The larger battery not being able to fit in their own cradle - and no optional cradle being offered - is a perfect example of 70%-style thinking, not 100%.

So do I just not like Focus? No, I simply chosen not to do business with a company that doesn't provide a 100% pro-ready product and information.

When a company or product does a good job I sing it's praises and offer as much helpful info to others as time permits. If a product and/or company isn't providing quality, reliable offerings and have my own time and testing results to prove it then I relate that info too.
