Incorrect. The phrase 'to put one's money where one's mouth is has nothing to do with wallets and shopping.

It means to back up your wild claims with actions to show you can deliver on them.

My post was about people who openly claim to know better than Nikon, who claim they are better desgners, managers, developers, marketers. To them I said, show me what you can do.

It originated from people making wild boasts and claims and people then betting their own money against them on being able to show that they could actually deliver on those claims. In that contrext, my use of the idiom was correct.

It is easy to declare superiority from behind a keyboard, but how about proving it?

Take pictures like Jiro makes Sushi.

No mate, you go it wrong. As I said in this case the way this saying applies is for those who support it to buy it and prove that is a good camera, and for those who do, use something else to show the opposite.
