Am I crazy to want an Inspire 2?

Re: yes :)

I had an Inspire 2, X5S and several lenses.  Took it all over the US and to Iceland.  I've hiked with it strapped to a backpack.  Its an impressive drone with great IQ.  Its not subtle and its not something you can fold up and toss in a bag.  The big deal is not only sensor but the ability to mount 50mm and 90mm lenses for a unique view.  I found that I could get 80% of the IQ using my Autel Evo 2, but I do miss the lenses.  The Mavic 3 is ok, but word is, the quality of the lens involved degrades the Micro 4/3rds advantage.  The XDynamics Evolve 2 looks promising.

Some favorite X5S stills:

Mount Baker Dusk Olympus 25mm lens (50mm)
