this all i can agree with and am standing on the same side of the discussion. i just have a kneejerk reaction when someone is trying to stretch a straightforward issue into a political discussion. there is too much of that as it is.
i will tell you why it feels off though:
with the MKII you have gear that is undoubtedly a nicer experience but marginally so. at the same time as our MKI are depreciating quite a bit. ebay and co are flooded with MKI.
the absurdity comes from the fact that the MKII have actually lesser funtionality without OB, so we come to a situation where one is paying more money for less features atleast atm. this is just a bizarre selling proposition, and its all due to the OB delay.
so for a MKI owner, that wants to get MKII, its a lose-lose scenario. my older gear loses value and the newer gear is missing a key feature. while expected, every new MKII release reminds me off that fact, hence the salt.
