Why do people defend their equipment?
Feb 6, 2011

I know that people want to be right and all, and I used to post here (dpreview) regularly, but have been away. Anyway flurry of posts because I decided to get a used GF1, and I still find it shocking how people will irrationally ignore the facts support a brand/camera/lens just because they own it. Moreover they seem to take it very personally if you don't like it.

I find that very strange. Why care what some random person thinks. Why insist what you have is somehow the best.

Is it just insecurity, human nature?
