This is the kind of product justification emotion that fuels an entire manufacturing industry.
We all have these desires to own more stuff. We all want to be better photographers. Some of us are actually justified in wanting more stuff, but isn't it weird how once we have it, it's never enough to make us a better photographer. We always need something else.
I'm thinking specifically about my latest desire to have a Fujifilm X100S. I don't need it. It certainly won't make a difference to any of the jobs I do, but every day I covet the bloody thing. As I did with the Samyang 7.5mm fisheye that I have used probably half a dozen times since getting it a few months back.
Now I find myself making elaborate gear exchange schemes in my head so that I can justify the selling of perhaps my Nikon D700 and 24-70mm 2.8 lens, the combination of both have been responsible for bulk of my income for the past couple of years.
Perhaps I just like to get new stuff for the sake of getting new stuff?
Sometimes I do basic product photography (pack shots) and I have kind of mastered that with the Nikon system and three speedlights. Now I want to do it all on Olympus, but the problem is that in my head I am trying to justify selling off the SB speedlights and getting the Olympus ones to do effectively the exact same thing. I can actually use the Nikon lights manually with the Olympus off body, but then where's the fun in that? Gotta get at least three Olympus speedlights... Then I am sorted. Until I need a second Olympus OM-D.
It's all very confusing.
If I am honest with myself, I should just stop buying gear now. I really have everything I need and I am able to accomplish a great many tasks with the bodies and lenses I have at my disposal. With the exception of underwater photography there isn't much that I can't do. I have no fewer than 4 macro lenses. I have two Nikon bodies and an Olympus OM-D. I have extreme wide angles for both the Nikon FX and Olympus m43 bodies. I can shoot fast moving stuff with the Nikons and stationary stuff with the Olympus. I have telephoto lenses for both systems.
What's wrong with me?
I know. I'm just being human. I want it all.
