And what's up with the macho language like "shoot" and "glass." "I shoot a D700" ??

and I tend to avoid tired, over-used terms like "tack sharp" (is there no other way of describing a sharp image?)

Or my favorite; "arsenal". "My arsenal consists of... blah blah blah"
One that I'm guilty of is "capture", as in "nice capture dude". Is everyone so afraid to use every day common words like "picture"? "Nice pictures dude".

Yes, we all do it, and I'm sure I use cliche too.  We just notice it more with jargon and cliches that we don't use ourselves.
