    I had not been reading photography magazines much for many years prior to getting into M43 this year. I have seen What Camera, Digital Camera World, Digital Photography and Shutterbug. The one I found most useful was Popular Photography. I was able to see the last 17 monthly issues at my library and I found the test graphs to be easy to understand. It was interesting to compare results for a wide variety of cameras. The third generation Olympus Pen cameras actually scored better on noise than conventional wisdom and posts on this form seem to indicate.

    This made me wonder what the relative reputation of the different magazines have in the world of the well-informed camera user. What would you all recommend?

    Popular Photo is the only one I read with any sort of regularity. Obviously the bulk of their coverage is of Canikon (as that is what presumably the bulk of their readership shoots), but I've found their coverage of the mirrorless landscape to be quite decent.
