in other words how far down the rabbit hole should you chase small improvements in gear.

will it translate to much better images if you get a lens which score 7% more on a optical test ?

is it worth it to ebay gear because a new model has 60 mp - not 38 ?

these are questions that boggle the mind

For me, I looked at what I really needed from my photographs and I looked and found lenses that fulfilled those requirements (16x24 print size, Sharp enough lens to not need sharpening, smooth bokeh) and I’m VERY happy with my current gear as a result.
