Destructive? Please.

+++1. This obsession with new technology is destructive, and has nothing to do with photography.

I know this is a "gear forum", but almost all of the cameras posters own on this forum are overkill for their photographic skills and talents, yet they continually want more, more, more. Good photography comes from your eye and brain, not from the latest cool technology or expensive lenses.

Sam, to be blunt, if it really bugs you THAT much, this might not be the forum for you.  The focus of many, if not most discussions here is technology and the speculation that surrounds it.  It's less so about photography per se.  This hasn't changed in the 10+ years I've been participating.  Overkill or not, people are intensely interested in the technology contained within their cameras and speculating about which direction Canon will head.  Yes, it gets intense at times (as it is in this thread), but it's best to simply overlook it and move on.  You can rant until you're blue in the face, but it won't change a thing... guaranteed (other than perhaps making you feel a bit better).
