Do I have too many camera bodies?

About two+ years ago, I thought I need a good camera.

At that time, I owned Sony DSC-W7(point and shoot).

I had no idea about this world so I just did web search and bought T2i set.

But no chance to use it until business trip(and vacation) to Florida in Oct. 2012.

Got a lot of great photos and was able to smell little piece of this world.

I’m a computer engineer and frequent traveler.

I thought it’s a good idea to take good camera set on the trip.

So, I bought 24-105L, 6D and sold T2i about year+ ago.

Took it to Buffalo(and Niagara Falls), London, Scotland …..


As I’m traveling more, I thought I need 2 set because in many cases I was not able to take care of my camera set.

I had to leave it in the trunk for hours or even a whole day.

So, I bought 5Dc and was happy with this old camera but it was too heavy.

I sold it and bought Sony NEX 5T with Sigma 30.

It is ok but not great compare to Canon set I have.

So, I bought 5Dc back.

Few months ago, I had a chance to go to Houston Ball Park and took my friend’s T1i with my Tamron 70-300VC.

I thought I need a crop body and bought mint 40D(500 clicks) for $250.

This 40D is working so well with Sigma 50 f1.4(not art).

Last week, I checked Canon web and bought refurb 60D.

Why? I don’t know. I just did.

Price was great.

I might want to have a decent crop body.

Well, I now have

6D, 60D, 40D and 5D with Sony NEX T5.

Other than 6D, they’re not expensive stuffs and don’t hurt me anyway.

I’m going to enjoy them case by case.

Do I have too many bodies, as a non pro?
