It’s Nice to Know You Made a Good Choice

It’s always reassuring when you find out that other people agree with the choices that you have made in life and especially as a consumer.

In my consulting work, I used to tell sales people that many buyers read more technical product reports after they have purchased a product than they did before buying it. They want affirmation that their product choice and buying decision was an effective one. This is a psychological need to overcome that syndrome we call ‘buyer’s remorse’.

I received an affirmation ‘in spades’ today when I read that the very influential TIPA organisation (Technical Image Press Association) rated my Pentax K3 camera that I purchased late last year as the best Digital SLR Camera in their expert category. I have always been a Pentax enthusiast and the recent acquisition of the company by Ricoh is now resulting in some very fine equipment.
