Fair enough, and that's a really good goal. But...I can think of a dozen or more better ways to determine that, and no ways worse than posting this topic that you posted on this forum.
Still fun to read it :-> ... but indeed given the large differences in requirements and esp. the amount of people who exhausted their budget to buy a $3500 camera body and those who cannot/don't want to afford it at all it's very tricky to get a unbiased view (if there is such a thing).
Better ask "I want to shoot xyz, already have got xyz gear, have xyz $$$ for lenses+body now and would be ok to invest xyz $$$ more later on".
