Just look at folks gear lists. Tons of folks have way over $7500. It's a hobby and you can make it as expensive as you like. It's all a personal preference.

I know folks that own well over 100k in watches and all they do is tell time...and some not as accurately as my $100 watches. But it makes them happy.

Some folks buy expensive toys to improve their craft, some buy thinking it will improve their craft and some do simply to show off. To each their own. If I spent time dwelling on what others are doing I would be wasting precious time to enjoy what I am doing.

Enjoy your hobbies while you can.

Look at the list of threads OP has started, it it'll start to make more sense.

Or maybe less sense, depending on how you look at it.

Maybe the point was to see how we rationalize our purchases.
I don't.

Lots of members have passed $7500 in total purchases - or will pass that amount in a not too far future.

It doesn't take many L lenses (when counting cheaper L lenses) to reach that sum. Camera bodies are also a quick route.

I have done my best to stay away from studio lights - but they drain money at a very nice pace.

The thing here is that to some people, $7500 is a huge amount. To others, it isn't. And it makes a difference if the yearly purchases are for $7500 or more, or if it represents a lifetime collecting gear. It also matters if being a pro, or if this is the main hobby, or if maybe it is hobby #5.

Unless you're a business, why would you pay that much.

Because you can ... some people have more money that others, and spend it wisely. Others think if the camera is expensive, the shooters ability goes up proportionately to the amount s/he spends. That's kinda wrong, but buyers don't always know that ahead of time.

$7,500? I'm trying not too ;-)a

At least for the kit I will end up with currently.

But over the years, every manner of Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Pentax, Bronica, Metz, Vivitar and miscellany (brackets, filters, bags...and don't get me started on the darkroom I had) has passed through my studio way in excess of $7,500.

Oh, and almost forget decades of film, developing and printing. Now, I don't shoot professionally so keeping the kit to just a few pieces.

But, for me, not yet spent that sum on one piece of kit.

Because a person with bipolar mental illness can easily spend that in a manic purchasing frenzy.
