I just spent thousands of dollars this year and have hardly used the gear. When I do its for candids or vacations. I wonder if I am wasting the money and should sell it to downgrade to something more enthusiast level and cheaper. Also it's just so much to lug around. Just not sure and wanted some opinions.
I have a simple procedure:
I bought the 5.6 400mm lens for 1200 EUR.
Estimated time of usage: 20 Years.
Price per year: 60 Euro,
price per day: 16 ct.
Compare it to other expenditures (my data as example):
electricity: 1 Euro per day
natural gas: 2,50 Euro per day
Gasoline: 2,50 Euro per day
Health Care: 12 Euro per day
Food and Drinking: 5-10 Euro per day (some sort of health care
Use good gear as long as possible and enjoy it ... and do a little bit math!
PS(edit): Others proposed it to: convert the 70-200 2.8 into a 70-200 4.0 IS or non-IS - I have the non-IS, it is lightweight, compact and most importantly makes great photos and combine it with the 40/2.8 which has great image quality but transforms my 40D into a fat but compact camera!
