Re: Oh no! I'm loving my point and shoot!

Hmm. Feel a bit that way myself when I use my Samsung Galaxy Note instead of the Canon 5D2.

I do a lot of motorcycling with friends and sometimes it's just not convenient to keep stopping to unpack a big DSLR and pack it way again so I decided I'd use the camera phone on trips where I can't spend the time for more serious stuff.

I took these of the park in Taiping, Malaysia on the Note. Ok, they're only wallpaper but show how much phone cameras are catching up.


The nasty thought did cross my mind however, whether I really needed a DSLR. I shuddered and quickly apologised to my Canon and asked forgiveness!!

So I bought a 5D Mark III recently. Love it! No complaints.

I had some BestBuy reward zone certificates as a result of my purchases. I set out to buy a point and shoot for those times when the 5dIII is too big, bulky, and cumbersome. It had to do raw.

Best Buy beat some crazy online price and I got the camera for a deal. Is an nex-5r. The kit lens is so so, and I figured if I'm going to use this, I want a quality lens. So I bought the Zeiss 24mm 1.8. Big mistake! I love this Sony camera now.

Do any of you feel like you are cheating on your fancy DSLRs with your other camera bodies?

BTW, I'm shooting a karate tournament next weekend with the 5DIII, I'm not crazy. I just feel guilty about liking my point and shoot as much as I do.
