Photographers, almost by nature, are gearheads.  Some more than others, to be sure.  Because photography is an obvious visual pursuit, photographers over time will begin to see a difference in lens quality and in the quality of the digital capture of the sensor.  Equipment in a way used to be less of an issue with film as photographers were mainly...
