........ Let me clue you in on something: nature isn't built with photographers in mind.......
Um, nature, the world, everything in it, light, shadows, contrast, tonal gradations, compositional elements, all available instantly in infinite combinations, combinations that continually change with time of day, year, weather, viewer's mood and perspective, another combination available with a single step in any direction, words can never even begin to describe a single instant of our visual input to a blind person yet a click of the shutter can record and archive any instant to share with the sighted.
You are so wrong dilbert, nature is indeed symbiotic with photography, you have no cluing me in to do here, none.
......Flash systems? For 99%+ of my shots I don't use a flash.........
Shadows dilbert, your favorite topic and you and your use of your gear's inability to reproduce detail from shadows; shadows are places where light is reduced or blocked partially or entirely.
I think you could stand to learn some lighting techniques beyond simple, flash is one way shadows can, in a controlled manner, be exposed to light and exposed to your sensor.
You are welcome to wish for exquisite detail in every crag in every distant mountain in a landscape scene, you are welcome to continue to wish.
I'm already committing next year's tax return to buying Sony...
…....Conservative market stability is not something that I desire. My camera and lenses are tools, not investments. A digital camera (like any other technology product) is obsolete the day it is announced........
And there's the crux.
You have no budget for the gear you desire, you're waiting on next year's return.
You have my sympathy, I've been there too.
While there, I learned that I had to accept and work within budget limitations, it served no one, especially myself, to continually protest things I could not change. I longed for a 5DII for so long, the 5DIII was released and longed for, then the 6D arrived along with a budget change, meanwhile I worked a D80.
Perhaps if you'd had a conservative and stable outlook to your purchases, you'd have gotten more enduring satisfaction from those purchases.
In other TL:DR words, step up (buy your desired Exmor now) or step aside (grace us with your absence).
