Doug, the anti SMD thing has been doing the rounds for about 2 or 3 years. I’ve not heard it in any of the mainstream printed magazines though. I’ll try and dig up the review

I’m a pretty dab hand at putting down SMD manually - TSSOP 28 and 64 pin devices ( micro controllers) at 0.5 mm pin pitch no problem!

One could argue that the lack of leads is a benefit.. lol I particularly like those thin film Panasonic precision resistors. I stick to 1206 where possible, these shaky hands and bad eyes don't like anything smaller than 0805.
I actually prefer placing SMD - Im most comfortable at 0805, SOT23 and SOD323 and bigger.
