Ngl, I was obsessed with the specialized cameras, but as time went on and the camera in my pocket got so much better (mobile phones camera improves every year), it makes it harder to justify a high cost unless you are doing something truly requiring it.

The consumer camera market in the low and mid range seems to be increasingly dominated by mobile phones.
