A.G.A.S - does it work for you?
7 months ago

Anti Gear Acquisition Syndrome. Does it work for you? How much value in the latest and greatest vs the slightly older and a lot cheaper? I'm not passing judgments, saying it's the photographer and not the tool, or saying that all things being equal that better equipment will help you realise your vision. I'm asking - probably as a hobbyist I know - where do you draw your lines.

I recently decided to spend no more than £500 on a body, knowing that in a couple of years the latest and greatest would be cheaper and not so great. So far picked ups Pentax K5 (beautiful but flawed of course) and a Fuji XE-1 (likewise). Both can take better pictures than I can...both £300 each (bodies only), surely cheaper if you don't live in rip-off UK.

Thoughts?

Cheers

Nick
