at what point does it make sense to stop obsessing over gear minutia ?

Around six or seven years ago

By around 2012/2013 digital cameras had developed to the point where they exceeded the needs of most amateur photographers.

Ever since then, all improvements have been slight and evolutionary. True, the newer cameras are measurably better than those made six years ago, but the differences are really minor for everyone but specialized professionals and gear obsessed amateurs.

If "best technology" meant "best photos" then someone must explain why photographs taken 75 years ago are hanging in museums and can sell for millions of dollars at auctions.
