Hi all, what a great forum to post questions that are troubling me...
I am about to spend some money on a camera and lenses. I have a great camera (5DII) and great lenses (100-400L, 70-200 F2.8, 25-70 F2.8, 16-24 F2.8 L).
So you might be wondering, what else does this idiot want? Such great gear! And indeed I ask myself these questions too.
Well, this is where the real question comes in. I started with a Canon Rebel and 15-55 and 55-200 lenses (or something like that). I then upgraded to 40D, then some better zoom lenses, then 5D and more lenses.
Now I am looking at getting some prime lenses. I am also looking at getting a neat little hand-held unit with good manual settings and a good lens for those occations when you don't want to seem like a dork at a party. I hear that there is a 40MPixel Nocia Phone out (?!?). Having talked to others, I find that they have gone through similar steps and some are on the way to a similar progression.
So I guess my question is, am I going through a typical eloutionary pattern? SLR=> Zoom Lenses => SLR + => Zoom Lenses + => Primes => Small modular camera? And what will be my future descisions if I keep going? Medium/large format?
