Here's the gear-focused photographer cycle:

1.  Post "should I buy now or wait" thread

2.  Wait 6 months to get next model that's supposed to fix everything and make the most amazing photos ever taken by a human.

3.  Launch date of new camera is announced.  Continually hit refresh on the B&H site so you can pre-order at the exact second of availability.

4.  Read initial reviews which point out some flaws or quirks.

5.  Cancel pre-order

6. Post tons of questions on forums to validate/get excruciating details about the scope and severity of said problems. This cycle will take a month or two.

7.  Post "should I buy now or wait" thread.

All the while never going out and actually making photographs, exploring subjects in-depth, experimenting, telling stories, capturing family memories, etc.

Always chasing the magic bullet.
