What's funny about this conversation is that everyone is attempting talk themselves out of upgrading. "I don't need it! I don't need it! I don't need it!" It is sort of a group therapy session... "I won't take another drink, I swear it!" My son-in-law reminded me a week ago when I told him I wouldn't upgrade to a new camera, I had said that before. He has the D200 which I gave him after I bought the D300. My son has the D300, which I said was all that I will ever need, that I gave him after I bought the D700. Why don't they believe me?
I wonder six months from now how many of these self-convincing statements will hold up. We may well hear "Oh, well I gave in and bought it anyway!"
