Why not?

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?

How many people's hobbies "pay for themselves"?  Unless you start an actual business, no hobby is going to pay back everything or even a fraction of what you've paid into it.  You buy what makes you happy while still fitting into a budget.
