I think people selling their old hardly used gear to upgrade to the latest and greatest is wonderful, it means that when I wear out my gear I can pick up fantastic equipment for cents on the dollar. Happy days.

Exactly. I love those with quick upgrade cycles. I am so thankful to them; I owe them a lot. But even to people that where geeks about 90 years ago...when I buy a Contax from 1936, the only reasonI can buy it is because someone bought it in the first place.

What would we do without those that work professionally or make enough to try all the latest and greatest? They get to use it first, and the rest only need to way until they have moved on (ideally, 10 years down the road, us reading can afford it by then :-).

Unless if it's a Leica 7.5cm f1.5 lens
