I don't think it's as bad as indicated above. First off, I don't know why this indicates anything in particular about his finances, except that he's probably not living on food stamps. Is everyone here who reveals the gear they use putting their finances on display? We all have different priorities, and someone willing to spend $10k on gear might be making $250k/year but doesn't want to spend much, or $50k/year but places a high emphasis on photography.
Also, keep in mind the source. This is a guy who is very used to analyzing, testing and evaluating. It's part of his business. So while for your average consumer, this might be overkill, evaluations or comparisons like this are second nature to someone whose business partly consists of these kind of comparisons.
In my opinion, it's a little like the thought process for, say, a Car & Driver Magazine writer who might have an exhaustive, documented and thorough selection process for picking his family's sedan where that might be overdoing it for me.
In any event, I found it interesting enough to scan and it made me at least consider a few things I had not before. For instance, a cheaper lens with a higher resolution body might produce equivalent resolution to a sharper lens on a lower resolution body. Just my $0.02.
