Seriously, I like talking about gear. I use my gear extensively, and love talking about it when I am not using it. This is a gear and equipment forum; perhaps, if you wish for fewer gear posts, visit POTN, maybe?
I like the gear discussions, with all the rumors, misconceptions, explanations, urban legends, the smitings and applaudings, even the rage posts when people get frustrated (the MegaPixel vs. Image Quality argument). This is what it's all about! This is a equipment foreign, and I like it that way!
