That's what YOU think.  Wanna know what I think?

I don't give a crap what people spend their money on.  It is none of my business, nor is it yours.

I have to agree with nfpotter's point here, if not his wording. We shouldn't judge what others choose to spend their money on. I think it is crazy that a lot of people spend $5/day on expensive coffee. If they enjoy it, who I am to tell them what to spend money on? I know many of them think I'm crazy to spend $2,000 on a single huge camera lens that is only a 3X zoom when they have a tiny 30X zoom for $500? To each their own. Also, some people (many on dpreview) make enough money that there is essentially no difference to them between a $500 body and a $1,200 one. Why not start with the higher end body if they have enough "sense" to have a job that pays that much?
