Re: Folks here have taken a divergent path - they need validation

Very good point. I also believe that people who choose m43 are more likely to be genuinely interested in, and therefore talk about, photography itself. Whereas a larger percentage of those buying CaNikon do so because they want to be seen to have big professional looking gear (which they subsequently use to make snapshots).

As someone who has been shooting four thirds since 2005 (and -- full disclosure -- has since expanded into other brands and formats, including m4/3), I can say that there is also the opposite mentality with a large percentage of four thirds/micro four thirds users, where they choose the less orthodox formats so they can say, "Hey,  I don't go along with the crowd!  I'm different!"  And a lot of those people spend plenty of money just to take snapshots, too.
