Few people seem happy with what they have. We see comparisons everywhere

Comparing, sensors, lenses, weight, colours, IQ, sharpness, lastest... seems endemic

What are we hoping to do/achieve by constantly comparing one thing with another ?

and yes, like everyone I fall into the trap (sometimes)

So, calling all psychologists, anthropologists...or maybe we'll just end up comapring psyches

It comes from the human drive to constantly improve, which is why we have these amazing cameras to begin with. What are we hoping to achieve? The knowledge of what camera is better so we know what to upgrade to next.
