Not getting the use it / they deserve!

OK, I will cut to the chase!

Me. Amateur, holiday and grankid snap specialist!

So whats the problem. Well I am not using my virtually new A7RIII and lens selection (16-35, 24-105 & 70-200 all f4) very much at all. So much so I am considering selling all the kit.Add to that kit list Godox V860IIs and Godox Spro(s)TTL Wireless flash trigger (Both never used)!

Don't get me wrong, I love the kit but tend to grab the RX100V or RX10IV first! Guess I have become a very lazy photographer of late!? However I have been asking myself these questions.

1. Do I really need this quality of equipment to fulfil my photographic needs / wants at this time? No.

2. Am I happy with the quality and versatility I get from my RX cameras? Yes.

3. When I go on vacation what do I take with me? The RX range = versatility and portability in both video and stills.

4. Am I going to spend more to expand my range FF Lens? Unlikely but I have GAS for some quality primes!!

5. Is it time to sell based on fact of little use? Maybe?

6. Can the money raised from selling be used for other things. Yes. Financially Im sound and in good position but don't like to see things go to waste.

Reason for post. Well I just wondered if there are others (amateur enthusiasts) out there that end up with thousands of £/$ in equipment they seldom use??
