For professional photographers, cameras and lenses are tools of the trade—not baubles. When a particular system no longer fulfills their needs, they switch or fortify their arsenal by adding the brand that delivers. They don't always need the latest and greatest; in fact, an established, time-proven setup is often the preferable option. Equipment that is seldom used is a debit, not an asset.

Passionate amateurs have the same gear options and generally the same motivations. Furthermore, recent research from MPB, the largest online platform to buy, sell and trade used photo and video gear, reveals the US population is hoarding $650 billion worth of devices they don’t use. And bear in mind that older tech does not improve with age. It has a shelf life. It's fish, not canned green beans.
