I've been into photography on and off for about 20 years. I had some entry level and mid range film gear in the late 90's to early 2000's. Entry level and mid range dslr gear when I got into digital some years ago and left the hobby and settled for some higher end compacts and a superzoom. I've recently got back into photography with mirrorless olympus and panasonic bodies. I think I've used or owned all the GF and E-pl models released form 2013-2016. I've also had all the mki OMD's and now I have an E-m1 and 2 "pro" lenses in the 12-40 and 40-150 2.8. The thing is, I'm a lazy photographer recently. I've learned enough over the years that I know what I'm doing most of the time, but I don't always apply the techniques that I've learned or read about and sometimes I just shoot in P mode most of the time and don't even bother to check the values before I press the shutter button. My pictures are ok, not great, but that's never stopped me from enjoying myself with a camera. Especially going hiking and walking around the city I like to have one around. I live in a big crowded city, there's lots of things to photograph but I've found I've been taking pictures of the same things and places over and over again just with different cameras. I've also never learned to do much post processing beyond cropping and adjusting brightness and colors a bit. I've made some efforts to learn a bit more but I just don't have the patience. Lately, it seems I'm more into buying and replacing my gear than the actual photography. I'm wondering now if this attitude and approach of mine warrants the cost of using higher end stuff or maybe I should take a step back from spending. EDIT: Sorry about the spacing, I don't know why it's come out with all my paragraphs bunched up like this.
