Re: how many $$$ have legacy lenses saved for you? and aren't they fun?

Almost the entire cost of my E-M5 system, including accessories and light weight Gitzo tripod. I sold my entire Nikon system including 13 lenses and used the proceeds to purchase most of my new system, and after 40 years of Nikon SLRs and DSLRs, I'm taking more pictures and enjoying photography more than ever.

Were my "legacy lenses" fun? I did a lot of backpacking and hiking with them, and lugging that system around helped me build up muscles, until my elderly years produced diminishing returns and pain. I went four years, only taking a handful of pictures after taking hundreds of thousands over the years. Now I'm back to take hundreds of pictures a week.
