Well, for me it's rather simple. The camera I "need" does not exist. The camera I "want" does not exist either. So I am in chase mode to get closer and closer to the camera I "need". Nikon chooses to put different compromises in different cameras, and I am simply trying to select cameras with as few compromises as possible.

Since Nikon doesn't offer a road map, it is often a guessing game as to what they will do. So do I stick with a camera I own with a certain set of compromises, purchase a currently available camera with a different set of compromises but better than what I own, or wait for the camera on the horizon which may get me very close to what I need. Or may not.

If you are simply shooting for your own entertainment, it's one thing. If someone is paying you to get certain images, then you are trying to weigh the options of potential income versus pending expenditures.

Ya dig?
