Ya, don’t forget how expensive redundancy gets.. Oh, how the thousands accumulate.. Like I told someone else, pro gear isn’t because it makes for a better image.. It’s for ruggedness.. That ruggedness and reliability = $$$$.. Which is why I mentioned that you take your time and accumulate your gear. Give’s you two opportunities.. a) learn your gear b) polish your skills and area of interest. By the time you’ve accumulated a small fortune in lenses and camera bodies I think you could essentially start a business and be relatively successful depending on how passionate about it you are.
It’ll all work out for ya 😀 again, good luck to ya!
edit: not to mention by the time you’ve invested double digit thousands into it, you kinda are financially obligated to make it pay back.. 🙂
