As for the avatar, it says what needs to be said without having said it. YMMV.

It says, very clearly, you are a conflicted troll who can't live by your own perverse opinions.

Your opinion. My opinion of you would hold you in a much lower light but I'd rather not type that.

If going to extreme measures to put yourself in the best place to get the composition you want is a photographic skill, then isn't choosing the gear most likely to get you the cleanest image and best composition also a photographic skill?

I think there's some overlap here.

This argument is now a pointless exercise.    To me, RL you must care something about gear or you wouldn't be on a gear rumor site talking about gear and displaying your own gear list in your sig just -- only to argue that gear is not important.    A minimalist approach to photography is one thing, and you make a good case for it, but imho you've taken this to the absurd level where its just not even entertaining anymore.

Gear doesn't matter, it just a matter of convenience. I stand by that statement, but many other's don't. I'm not offended if you agree or don't agree, but it's what I work by.

Lets move on.  So with 7D2 coming in 14, and a 1 series high MP coming in 14, that would make for only two notable DSLR bodies next year  (ok 70D would be three if it waits that long), plus the obligatory new Rebels, of course, which hatch frequently.  I guess i don't see whats so spectacular about the number of  2014 DSLR Bodies, and what a great year it will be --  beyond of course the fact that we may see Canon's price interpretation of what a high MP body should command from the market, and whatever they reveal in the 7D2.   is anyone anticipating more than this?

Canon has repeatedly said that the 7D2 will be "a significant upgrade" and "a game-changer". The safest bet is new sensor technology and improvements to AF, burst rate, video, and remote control. At the minimum it should be the unveiling of sensor performance that the rumoured high-megapixel camera will have.... and it is possible that they will skip over the .18 micron technology to something else... who knows?

And that's the crux of it.... "Who knows?" In the meantime we wildly speculate. We have no hard evidence to back up our speculations, but it's fun to dream.

I'll probably get one when it is released.... but I am patient enough to wait, plus my 60D works just fine.... I bet it has at least another 15000 shutter releases on it before the 7D2 comes out :)
The best camera is the one in your hands

But convenience matters...and so gear matters. Or do you dispute that convenience matters?

I guess I just don't understand what you mean by the phrase "doesn't matter."  In what way?  Do you even know what you mean?

Yea I'd rather widely speculate on that then about what doesn't matter to rl.  I'm wondering if we will see only 2 or more than 2 bodies

Apparently, any photo can be taken by any camera at all, a pinhole camera is a good as a 1D X.  So, who cares about a 7DII or high MP body - it's just gear...so it doesn't matter.   ::)

Right on. I've seen superb pin-hole photos and lousy 1Dx frames.  ;)

And obviously, any photo taken with one could be taken with the other, right?  Because gear doesn't matter.

I'm sure if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.
