I had the love of my life…. I pursued her and finally won her. I have spent much time getting to know her and finding out what she likes, what kind of accessories, etc. I was happy.
Then I took her to the company bbq last week.
And someone asked me to ”show his lady around”.
I fell in love again. I couldn’t help myself. I completely forgot about my brand new love to whom I had spent so much time, effort, and money and began enjoying the “feel” of this new lovely creature, all the while my newly-forgotten lady hanging on my arm, quietly watching me break her heart. Now I am online constantly pursuing this new vision. I can’t get my mind off her. Oh sure, I still smile at the current lady, enjoying her when I can, but late at night, when she’s down for the evening, I find myself surfing, lusting at pictures, checking sources, pricing the NEW accessories…. God help me, I’m in trouble! Someone help me!
Note: current lady- G9
New Love- 40D

Lack of a better word, "Polygamy" can exist in photography:p....Keep the G9, it will be handy in situations that warrants a p&s and get the 40D. Two different animals, but you can enjoy them both.

Have you decided which lenses to get?

Don't worry its just natural, you can keep the current lady on the side, she'll come in useful now and then, infact both of them can share accessories now and then!
