First off, wow, the HTML editor really sucks! I can't seem to take pieces of your commentary and split it apart... Sigh...

I think you're being a bit presumptuous about how others may use the equipment although I  too have suspected many purchase much more of a camera than they actually use. Having used an entry camera prior to the 50D and 7D, my experience was that there was a vast improvement in performance that I readily relied upon once I was familiar with the added performance of the camera. I do use the 18 megapixels, the "spray and pray" photographic capture technique along with expecting stellar performance from the advanced AF both in servo single point and multipoint AF. If the technical improvements really provided little to take better pictures, there would be little point for the pros to buy the next generation of camera. Instead, we're fortunate that pro or prosumer grade, still frame 35mm camera gear fits within a similar price range for both the lowly amateur and the pro. The improvements are enjoyed by both the pro and the amateur alike. I couldn't say that about pro video gear from five years ago.
