Have u gone bonkers? No just kidding. People ask themselves from time 2 time if they're going in the right direction. Fortunately 4 u it's not a career. With a little perspective and insight u'll discover or re-discover why u went into photography 2 begin w/. Is it the semi-pro fatigue that u weren't discovered so 2 speak by Nat. Geo. or Glamour or SI or some modeling agency or creative director at JWT? Or just got bored. Didn't find the stimulation and intrigue captivating anymore? Or did time just catch up and you feel different or some other psychological event of nature took place? Obviously I can't pin it down 4 u and I suspect u don't want to "share 2 much" on a forum in the blog-o-sphere.
Is it simply u fell in love w/ the wrong equipment or the new idea has taken root and now that's what u really wanted all along. I think u have shared a thought that's all 2 common for hobbyists. Personally I like to point the finger at the marketing departments. For as little as - fill in the blank- u can become the next brilliant whatever. Make your friends admire u even more. I'm just kidding.
It maybe that u don't like taking pictures which r supposed to be ready 4 prime time, and u simply prefer a fun camera. U don't want to enter the PopPhoto contest anymore. U don't need a $12K lens so u can get a close up of a kestrel. Whatever it is you're not alone. If it weren't for u and thousands like u and I share your consternatin from time 2 time, Canon would be forgotton. Why do u think they continue to add fairly useless features every year and spend zillions on announcing the new item will blow u away? Of course u know why. But I wouldn't sell the equipment just yet. The 5Dc ought to last u into the next decade despite all the promises of each succeeding iteration. Think of all the truly serious amateurs and pros alike who dive deep into ebay to locate a legacy lens. There's still value in your purchase to swap out and try something else just 4 the sake of it. Sorry I can't be much help but it's really up to u to decide.
