Lusting after the latest and greatest new gear, can be a hindrance.
If you take a look at the internet, itís easy to get caught in the ďLook how good this is, you should buy it nowĒ mentality.
Most times things are incrementally better or so drastically different itís not what you were hoping for. In most situations what you need is already available. Itís proven & reliable. For the longest time you have seen fantastic images created with gear thatís already out or much older. Furthermore some of the images you really admire weíre shot on film or on cameras literally older than you. Itís all subjective really. If a new camera is released, and itís what you need, by all means, get it. Itís better to look at what you need instead of what people say you should have.
