FOLLOW-UP FROM THOM on equipment lust.
"So be honest with yourself. You either need or you want a new camera. If you need it, you'll know why and the questions you should ask me and others should be very pointed to the specific thing that you need to be better. If you want it, you don't need to ask me anything. Just buy the darned thing and get your lusting over with (assuming you're not piling debt upon debt to get it). Then get yourself to a Consumer Anonymous meeting and start the twelve-step stop-buying-everything program before your closet fills up with unused gear and your spouse locks you out of the house."
