So many discussion threads on ‘which lens is sharper’. So much G.A.S. going on out there. Bigger and more is better.
I was there. Going through each and every review and going for the even sharper, newer or more praised lens. Maybe an old classing on the way. Anything that seemed slightly sharper or faster. More lenses found their way into the bag. In the meantime only a few found their way to eBay. And if they did - it always seemed to attract something new straight away. The overall bulk seemed to be increasing, yet many of the pieces were mostly spending their time in the box under the bed.
Being a keen walker and travelling a fair bit, this was not sustainable. I could lug the lenses and the cameras for a day walk. Not a problem. Could, on a push, lug it for a couple of days of walking. Heck, even lugged the 70-200mm f2.8 up the Mueller’s Hut in knee-deep snow. Was it work it? Hell yes!
