My wife is a wonderful photographer but she couldn't be bothered yackking about it with folks like us. She only yackks about gear when she wrecks another camera. (Purses are hostile environments for camera gear!) She just shoots and shares and haves a good time... with friends and family, not with strangers on the internet. (She thinks we who spend time on "chat rooms", as she calls these forums, are creepy losers who don't have a real life -- me included!)
