Re: Where has this obsession with comparison come from ?

I think part of it is that people who are interested in photography are trying to figure out what kinds of photographers they want to be. It’s a journey.

Am I a documentarian who values small size and low weight?

An aesthete who values rendering and character?

An adventurer who needs to be prepared?

Etc. The list is endless. There are lots of ways to do photography. And one way to think that through is to think about what gear you’ll use, and what its special properties are. It’s true that there’s a “my toy is cooler” aspect to gear comparison, but at least for me, I’m trying to figure out what will suit me and what I care about.
