If you know the difference between the Canon 5D Mark III and the Nikon D4, and you’re not a pro…what exactly do you consider a good use of your time?

OK, that was a bit harsh. But when I was a spec monkey, it never occurred to me that every minute I spent reading camera reviews was a minute not spent creating something. Cumulatively, I lost years.

Let my lack of priorities amount to something. Get out and shoot.
