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

I do not think that Amazon (the owner of DPR) has any other interest in photography than getting cash flow. Real photographers are few and far apart. Gadgets are there for any bored nerd (like myself) to buy. Buying is so much easier than learning a trade.
My pictures suck but I know everything of Chromatic Aberration. And I love the 'unwrapping' videos on YouTube and the talking faces, one black lens in the left hand another, black also, in the right. Who use very long sentences to say nothing.

Playing a 'let's pretend' game.
