This is a reworking of a post I made on photo lounge that I decided needed to be changed to more accurately reflect what I had meant to say originally. I have been shooting NEX cameras for a number of years and recently spent time shooting a Fuji (and before that I shot m43). They are all pretty good and capable of outstanding results. What I find interesting and a bit frustrating is how often we (myself included) have a grass is greener on the other side of the fence approach to our gear. I can't think of how many times I have found myself wanting this camera, that lens or some combination thereof. I tell myself that it is because I NEED it for some reason but the truth is more likely that I WANT it. There is nothing wrong with wanting something but I also know that I fib to myself and fabricate some fiction about how the new [camera, lens, bag, software, printer] will improve my photography. It doesn't. Case in point, my "ancient" NEX 6 is capable of nice results too. These are all MF using even more antiquated adapted lenses.

Would I like to have a new Sony FF body, or perhaps a nifty Fuji body and one of their sweet lenses? Sure! Would I like to have a Leica M and some of their legendary glass? You betcha! I love new gear, but none of it makes me a better photographer. In fact some of my best shots are the ones where I was working to overcome a limitation of some sort.
