New Camera hype and disappointment.
11 months ago

As I have followed these forums for years I have noticed a trend about new products that happens again again. This Wikipedia article describes it quite well so as the new year sets in and new products arrive try to keep a level head and don't let your emotions and enthusiasm get out of control. New products are never as good as everybody anticipates or as bad as people say once they come out. After 6 months or so when the dust settles the true worth of a product comes out.

Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
