I just want to say I have a D600 and love it, genuinely wouldnt swap it for any other Nikon, except the D3x possibly as I love the colours. I think you either buy a camera as a tool to try and take great photographs, or to compensate for the fact that you cant take great photographs, and I think some prominent posters are sadly in the latter category, and the 'status' you get from owning a particular camera. For me, status comes from the images you produce, and if anything making great images with a 'cheap' camera is even better!

Yes you've nailed it, and I've often forgotten this truth myself because of my general interest in gear. Ultimately your status comes from your images, not your gear. I suppose the photographically incompetent are more, or less forced to buy the most expensive equipment to appear relevant.
