Great order,

I instantly noticed that my order is upside down hence , it comes to conculusion: The Budget. And it makes me fell crazy. Sadness anger... and feeling bad !

Its very realistic route to follow...

Kiitos

That's a good place to start. The first question I ask myself is... do I really need yet 'another' camera? In the digital age, the temptation to want another camera is ever present. Unlike film, digital camera specs gets better and better and the innovations are nonstop. Most people who are into photography stay up to date with what's new because it is all very cool and interesting. It's no wonder some of us become gear heads / go through phases of gear acquisition... So if I don't really need a new camera, I may be able to dismiss the temptation.

However, needs can change because you want to explore a different style photography. Say you want to take up street photography but you're not comfortable taking pictures of strangers. You find out from others who have felt same way that having an articulating screen makes things easier. Your current camera doesn't have one, so now that you have determined a perceived need and potential solution, you can figure out your budget and begin that quest for a new camera.

Over the course of time you may end up with a few more cameras than you ever thought you'd own, but if each one can do something you want that the others cannot do, that's okay. If there is overlap, you might want to think about eliminating the redundancy..

It's a fabulous image , but fast glass and big sensor aside , you can't tell when weather and location is going to come to the party to give you that amazing shot.

I went to a Henri Cartier Bresson exhibition a while back, In the late 40's he went to India and got an audience with Gandhi  to whom he showed one his books of photographs.

The next day Gandhi was shot dead , and Henri was there to photograph the funeral pyre, and millions of mourners. Sometimes it's just plain luck.

Do you feel smilar pain as i do nowadays?

Yes.

Remedy: buy more than one camera and buy it on discount, before the "next new thing with incremental changes" gets released.

So the current perfectly-fine product is reduced in price and you snap it up (and can probably afford to).
