Such a thing as too many cameras.

I used to be wholeheartedly a Canon shooter. Until a stole in the Sony store one day, got me thinking about a small camera I could have on me, all the time, as I've been caught wishing I had my DSLR on me several times. I saw a NEX5, for something like $430, with the 16mm. Looked ok.

After research, I opted for a NEX7. If you're in it for a penny, you're in it for a pound, right? And slowly, I fell in love with the smaller NEX system. Much like the rest of you, I imagine. So, following the original purchase, I picked up a Zeiss ZM lens or two. The Sigma's. And the 10-18mm. Not watching, I am actually doubling lenses I already have for the Canon system. I now have a full kit of each, and too much cash tied up.

On top of that, I bought an RX1.

So...4 cameras (5D+7D along side the Sony's) and I am realizing this is a bit of a waste. Especially when I'm now wanting some longer lenses (200mm+).

So, I'm in a pickle. What to keep, what to sell to fund new purchases. It breaks my heart as I love the NEX platform, but the Zeiss 50mm Planar, and the 10-18mm may have to go...they are redundant, getting little use if any.

What to do?!
