I'm on a wine forum, a car forum (not much now) and this forum. All are predominantly male.
I long ago decided the reason why all talked about gear, acquisitions, experiences with gear/wine/cars is that you can't spend all your waking hours drinking/racing/taking photographs, so talking about them is the next best thing (although a friend of mine did try to achieve the drinking all day long, but he was a full blown alcofrolic and in the end his liver went and that was the end of that).
The article really is pure drivel though!
Leica M2, Nikon D700, Bronica RF645, Leica CL, Summicron 40mm, Rolleicord Va, Hasselblad 500 CM Zeiss Planar, Leica 50mm Summicron V3, Hasselblad PME51 metered prism, Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta 534/16 & Ensign 820 Special - all gone.
