holding me back

taken with gear that is "holding me back"

So far, there's absolutely nothing I can't capture with my E-30, or even with my ancient E-1. New gear will do very little for your photography, if anything at all. It's kind of like saying: "if Hemingway would have had a word processor instead of a typewriter, I bet he'd have written some even better stories."

I have gear lust the same way that every other modern photographer does, but I'm not going to kid myself and say that my gear is holding me back. It isn't.

In fact, yesterday, when I was walking through a local park taking pics of birds, I passed a Canon-guy with a huge body, HUGE lens, tripod, etc. Were his pictures any better than my E-30 and 70-300mm hand-held?

Maybe. Maybe not. But I was certainly enjoying my walk a lot more. He looked pretty weighed down.
