Agreed - though there is no brand bias

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 )

Spend some time in all the forums and the majority of what you see would be considered snapshots. No biases... One doesn't even know if (a) people take mainly snapshots or (b) only snapshot-takers post images.

Either way, nothing wrong with snapshots. Personally I love snapshots with my iPhone.
