Profession versus SHG Collection ???
Dec 6, 2011

Just wondering if many people on this board, or in their respective Olympus communities, already own or are often seriously considering the purchase of some SHG lenses without being utterly dedicated to photography on a professional basis...

This personal cogitation stems from my recent comparisons of three wide-angle lenses (7-14mm, 9-18mm, 11-22mm) as well as three tele zooms (35-100mm, 50-200mm, 70-300mm). And, of course, I must confess: when it comes to equipment lust, I definitely suffer! When I look at specs only, I am still ok; but then, if I happen to look at pictures (taken with the aforementioned HG but mostly SHG behemoths) gathered from various sources (Flickr, 500px, PBase, etc.), boy, howdy, it's agony!!!
