OK. I'll call you crazy. Or, perhaps, just not that interested in photographs. Me, I have cameras to take photos. As it happens, I have Canon EOS digital SLRs (plus a film one) and lenses to take some kinds of photos, and Leica M (film) cameras and lenses to take other kinds of photos.
It's not one or the other, it's both. But I really don't care so much about the cameras (I perhaps care more about the lenses) instead what I really care about is the photos. I use both camera systems because I find one better for some photos, and the other better for different photos. (That's in my personal use, and I don't necessarily think others would work the same way I do.)
What strikes me is your declaration that you're changing photo gear - rather than declaring you're changing the type of photo you're taking. If you declared the latter, the former might follow organically.
Instead, to my mind, you are declaring that the tail is now wagging your dog.
It takes all kinds, and "gear" can be a good hobby too, but I vote for the photo over the gear every time.
