Re: Burnt out on my x100f

I have my 'arsenal' of cameras and lenses and I use different cameras and different lenses on different days. Each camera/lens has its own quirks and switching keeps up the excitement for me. I'm definitely a hobby photographer and the cameras themselves give me joy, I don't just use them strictly as tools, they are also my toys. But to battle GAS I made a pact with myself that I won't buy anything new unless I sell a piece of my current collection.

Fuji Xpro-1 and X-A2, Samsung Galaxy NX and NX Mini, Ricoh GXR and all modules, Panasonic G9 and GM-1. There are countless variations here with different lenses. The G9 is my main camera and I just took it to and used it in Germany for 3 weeks (along with the X-A2 which I had bought there and left at my parents' house). When I got back I also was a little 'burnt out' on the G9 and am using my Samsungs for a while now. That way things stay fresh.

I can imagine a professional photographer will shake their head reading this. I'm a professional skier and own a ski school, I don't care which ski I'm on as long as it works for the class I'm teaching. If I teach bumps all week I don't get burned out on the ski I'm using as long as it does the job. Though I have several of my 'hobby skier' students who own a collection of very similar spec'ed skis and they switch them around, but for the most part switching skis does not make them better skiers.
