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 )

Maybe, to make sure that the reason that their pictures are not perfect, is not down to the equipment.  If you know that your gear is as good as it can be, you can only blame yourself for poor results.  For some people, this motivates to better performance.

Anyway, my masterpiece is your snapshot and vice versa.

Also, if someone can afford the best gear and just likes using it, even if they never progress to your lofty heights, why shouldn't they?
