WHO's with me, with this plan for 2011??
I am partially with you. Mostly because of a natural end of an "era" than any conscious decision. I went without buying gear for a really long time due to money and school (which I put myself though) so I went a bit hog wild once my career took off and I had some extra money.

But now I'm in a really good place. Sure, I look at gear and software, but it doesn't seem to take much to talk me out of it. Don't get me wrong, I'd still love an Omega 8, but I don't obsess about it. I have a room full of wonderful gear and fantastic software and while it's hard to get out of the G.A.S. habit, it seems to be more irritating than fun these days.
