I can't convince myself enough to buy the Sony 70-200mm gm lens because of the price. I have saved up money for it, but i can't get over the fact that i'm just a amateur photographer and none of these photos I take are going to pay off the equipment i have purchased. Do any of you get this problem?

A return on investment doesn't have to be monetary. In fact if you buy that lens and take thousands of pictures and not sell a single one it still might be a good investment. I think at the end of the day only you will know if it is worth the price. I will ask this. Do you need a constant f2.8 aperture? If not you can probably find an alternative that will meet your standards without breaking the bank.
