Any ILC system _can_ be expensive
In reply to Grobb, Apr 30, 2013

It depends on what you want or need from a system, or more specifically, your photographs.   But ILC's are designed to accommodate different optic needs, and the more needs you have the more lenses you may accumulate.   The more discerning or demanding of their objectives one is, the more expensive the lenses one covets might be.

Might be.   It depends on the type of photographer you strive to be.   Some want to be as respected as renowned personalities in photography - which often means using the best kit possible to have any chance of being competitive.  Others simply want nice photos of moments in their lives without much fuss or engagement with the craft, and they would know CA from AC so their requirements wouldn't be as stringent.

You might want to take a look at what folks are advising, and then see what they've been able to do with that same gear (check their galleries).    For what interests you, then ask about how the photographs displayed were accomplished.
