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?

If you expect any equipment you buy to "pay off" the cost of the equipment, you are either ignorant or deluding yourself.

Another question to ask yourself. If you buy one of these "pro" lenses, will you be so afraid of damaging or marring it that you will be afraid to use it except on a nice sunny day where there is no chance that anything can happen to it.. After all, it is just a tool.
