Re: Where has this obsession with comparison come from ?

Human nature, I think.  We love groups, and the list of what groups we belong to, based on the things we like best, forms part of our identity.  And then, of course, you want to prove your worth by showing that the things on your list are better than the things on other people's lists.  This can be dangerous-- identifying as a citizen of a nation or even a supporter of a sports team can get you hurt or killed. At least your favorite camera is usually a harmless identifier.
