Something i notice in the Sony forum, more than in Canon & Nikon, is that, we see people that just take snapshots, buying top of the line A99's.
So, no, i'm not going to "rage against you". I just want to understand why do you spend such amount of money, just to take snapshots ? You like having the latest and greatest? Just a tool that will allow you to grown in photography? Just a gadget and you like to experiment new gadgets?

Many people changed from the A77 to the A99 ( not only here ) ... but again, only for snapshots. Or, the excuse of having the best tool to grow and progress in photography ... ( what, imo, its BS )

Please define the difference between a snapshot and a candid portrait, and then tell us how you are able to tell the difference just by viewing the end result..........

I call BS on your BS. It takes motivation to grow and progress in any endeavor. So, while I agree you don't need an A99 to grow as a photographer, if having the latest and greatest equipment motivates you to progress and grow as a photographer then so be it.
