I don't know if I have the high score around here, but it isn't for a lack of trying!

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

I'm an 8.5 out of 10.
I mostly buy new, and I usually talk about other nerdy stuff before cameras.

2-3 at most.  #6 and talking mostly of cameras but only with friends who have the same hobby as mine.  For part-time photography work, gear talk is minimal.  It's mostly on how to engage the client, techniques and poses.  It's more of a creative conversation than technical.  Most of the time (when not working), I just bring my G11 so as to minimize the contents of my backpack except when our family goes to a place that's very interesting.  For everyday photography, I find my G11 sufficient.  If any smartphone will have manual controls + comparable IQ, I'll immediately switch my G11 for it.

Ouch, #5 hurt....

Brought back old memories of the request to "bring a camera" for a group picture at a Christmas party.   I wont go into the details.... too painful.   Lets just say I outdid the Christmas lights, and the 32lb Majestic tripod was present.... the pain... I need a bourbon quick...

LOL, I'm a bit of a geek then. I thought that bringing the 200 L to go grocery shopping was something everybody did? You know, because I have seen lots of people do that never.
