Just over a week ago, we posed the question "Who's the best Reviewer" and posted a rating page to allow our users to rate several well known online photography reviewers, giving them between and 1 and 5 stars each.
Much to our surprise, the rating page became by far the most visited page on our site, and over the past few days we've had hundreds of votes, we've added more reviewers at our users request, and had many thousands of visitors going straight to that page. As a result, we've expanded that page to allow people to leave a short review/comment for each Reviewer, and we've also expanded the rating section of our site with our new Rating Center.
As to the results: Norwegian Photographer Bjørn Rørslett led the early polling, but eventually was overtaken by Thom Hogan, the author of numerous guides for Nikon Cameras and Flashes. Currently in third place is the German site, Photozone.de, closely followed by the massive, Amazon owned DPReview.com. At the time of writing, these were the only four sites to have a four star or greater rating.
However the most votes so far have gone to the controversial Ken Rockwell, who has received over 22% of the total votes to date. Thom comes in second with 18% of the votes, and DPReview third with 17%.
To those that have voted, Thank You. We plan to leave the voting open, the latest results can always be found here: Rate the Reviewers
