Something i notice in the Sony forum, more than in Canon & Nikon, is that, we see people that just take snapshots, buying top of the line A99's.
So, no, i'm not going to "rage against you". I just want to understand why do you spend such amount of money, just to take snapshots ? You like having the latest and greatest? Just a tool that will allow you to grown in photography? Just a gadget and you like to experiment new gadgets?

Many people changed from the A77 to the A99 ( not only here ) ... but again, only for snapshots. Or, the excuse of having the best tool to grow and progress in photography ... ( what, imo, its BS )

I once noticed a Nikon shooter in their forum. He had a D3s with top of the line lens + flash, all he posted were his family pictures, all nicely centered in the middle of the frame, on the same staircase in his house. Furthermore, some of his shots indicated that the person was not ready, looking in the wrong way and such, he didn't seem to care. There you go.
