I think you are missing the point Joe...  I was simply making a comment about the gap between a $3500 dollar piece of equipment (cost of a new 5D when they were introduced with 28-105 kit lens) purchased 10 years ago is narrowing to the point where a $250 dollar pocket size piece of equipment can "sometimes" equal, and in some cases, exceed that of equipment once far superior... Just my humble opinion..  you may not agree.. not all people who pick up a Lecia M3 or M8 loved them either..

If you think about it.. does a camera really have to take a picture capable of being enlarged to a 20x30 in this day and age.. I would venture to say that 98% of all pictures taken by the average Joe.. prosumers included, take them of family, kids, general landscape, vacations, etc.. How do we share theses digital images?  We share them via Facebook, Smugmug, Picassa, etc..  When was the last time invited over the inlaws to sit around the coffee table and enjoy a night of browsing through the photo albums.. better yet, of all of your digital images that reside on your multiple drives can you say you printed out larger than a 8x10?  I would venture to guess less than 5%..  Unless your doing magazine work.. is there really any need for a 20+MB camera?
