Nothing, I was talking about myself.

Of course not everyone has to take photography seriously but questioning someone who looks to challenge themselves with their hobby seems like the politics of the schoolyard.

I'm questioning the statement that 'serious photography can only be done with a DSLR', not that it shouldn't be done.

Personally what I like about photography is that its one of the few areas of popular culture where personal improvement and creativity is still an important element, elsewhere big business seems to want lazy comsumers.

I agree.

But your not just reffering to yourself, your comments at the start of this thread were spefically addressed at others.

Its getting annoying how much often get this kind of passive aggressive posting here, especially when it comes to DSLRs.

Exactly.  The OP was not directed at the author but instead against others.  It was a vent/rant against other people's choices and how the author felt left behind.

9 years of Fujifilm camera usage, ended by rampant fanboyism.

Indeed, I don't care about second guessing someone elses choices when it comes to photography gear but its getting annoying just how many of these kinds of threads tend to come across as purchase(or lack of purchase) justification.

The way the argument always seems to shift from someone making a statement agenst the choices of others to that same person getting defencive and bringing up his own needs is a dead giveaway IMHO.
