Expensive hobby.
Sep 10, 2013

Just been wondering how expensive photography is ... and in terms of a good photography with say the camera club or even some old great photographs or even at present some are not that sharp or technically superior.

I've been getting used lenses, the previous versions etc.  For a hobbyist it may mean just sideline enjoyment, maybe attend the camera club provide some a printeed submssion or provide some prints for family and friends.

Do you guys keep upgrading?  We always hear the bodies and lenses get better and more optimised.  Not every model but over time ...the theme we hear about is that is is the worthy upgrade etc ... I even hear that at times beginners who is looking for their first SLR are suggested to get a entry body alone and then get a $700 lens to go with it.
