Never understood this obsession... I thought good pictures have zilch to do with format and everything to do with skill, talent and luck... a good photog can make P&S photos sing whereas someone like me can be given a medium format camera and still end up with images that are average at best.
Obsession...if you knew me you'd think otherwise, not judge so quickly, given what I've shot with since 1970 and how slow I go through equipment, I still shoot film and in NO way discount the image maker...what an uninformed joke? And if you look at my comments throughout FM and a half dozen other photography imaging websites, other than just this one post, you'd realize my obsession is with photography, as most image makers are.
As for gears, the 8x10, 4x5, Polaroid, rangefinder were given away just a few years back after 37 yrs shooting film, it's only been the last 5 years that digital has had my attention...I don't hang gears on my walls, mat n frame gears for those friends n family that request my imagery. Photography is a simple joy for me, one joy still within reach. The new FF sized sensors look to have better light gathering qualities than my croppers do, their just tools to help the creative eye tell a story!
Simpleton not, as for skills that is for you to judge if that is what gets you off, I like to enjoy myself, have fun with what little body, time, brain cells I have left and what gears help me get through the day without screaming
