Only if your only measures of photographic success are technical image quality

Great point!

I love to look at the 30 y o prints of my children! It really helps the memories. Why else would most people say the first thing to grab in a fire (once you are sure all are safe) are the photo albums....now we save it on a hard drive at another location, or on the cloud.

I wasted 90 minutes this week taking pictures with first a legacy 135mm, then added a 2x TC, then came back with a 150-500 OS zoom. It was fun to compare what I could do with each. Are any of the pictures technically perfect....no I only have about 10 keepers out of 300....but I was shooting bumble bees on flowers! And I had fun!

So I get an appreciation for the many great images out there, and for my keepers, both good and just keepers!
