I don't get it either... everyone has this crazed mentality of having to have the "best" possible lens and camera all the time...
Whatever though, I'll happily continue to treasure other people's "garbage"
Saying stuff like that isn't really much better than the idiots that are always saying their expensive crap is better and do fit that description. While it is accurate for a percentage of people, I am sure at least half of us that preordered are not gear snobs, don't look down on non current gear, and maybe really have been kinda waiting on a 50 of some sort that is not $1600 with some questions, or $400 with even more. And not to mention, other than vintage lenses(of which I am also a fan of and own), $950 preorder price is still a serious value compared to today's lens prices of similar alleged quality.
I know your point, and those people are here, but don't lump everyone into that category when most are likely responsible people that reasonably indulge and see things in their proper perspective.
