There is a difference between Need and Want.  I have all I need, if I didn't I'd get what I need.  There is a ton of stuff I want.

Agreed, huge difference between need and want. I also have all the cameras and lenses I need.

I've committed to not buying anything in 2014, at least no material goods. So no new camera gear, no new gadgets, no new clothing. I'm sticking with what I've got. It's helping me focus on what's important to me: my photography, friends and family, sports and travel.

I have this *magical* ability....I have a want, and with only a handful of mental manipulations, it almost instantly becomes a NEED.

Dear DaveMiko
" I have all the gear I need now."---That many  hours ago when you write this post----BUT Now, Many Hours Later, If Canon make decision for $ 10,000 US Dollars Rebate for 12,500 Us Dollars EF 800 mm= You pay only $ 2500 US Dollars for Brand new Lens----Will you Need this Monster Babe ?
Ha, Ha, Ha, I will buy 4 Of them, and Sell 3 of them Later in Ebay, to make a lot of money.

"Now" is long gone, besides I know you'll be buying something sometime in the future to contribute to your gear list, especially if new and better gear show up.

Need/want dunno?  However, I do have more than I can carry!
All theories are wrong, but some are useful, eh?

Just what I was thinking. I have what I need NOW, but what about tomorrow, and the day after that, and etc.  We have to think about the future, right? Constantly changing, improving technology, right?  You have just convinced me that I NEED to buy more gear. Thanks, I just needed a second opinion.  ;D.  And more money.
