Why does a dog lick...

Because they can, and I know, at least in my country, people are free and wealthy enough to do so if they so desire. When you are free to spend your money on what you want, you are free, when the gov takes so much of it away to spend they way they see fit, you often don't have enough money to spend the way you see fit. Then there are the people who are dictators that would see people buying expensive cameras for snapshots and take their freedom away so they cannot do that.

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 )
