In my 12 years of running Phoblographer, I’ve owned a camera or lenses from every manufacturer. They’re all good. No one makes a bad camera or bad lenses. But very few of them are great. Lots of photographers talk about getting rid of their gear acquisition syndrome (GAS). And as Arts and Culture Editor Dan Ginn has talked about before, I don’t always think it works. In an ideal world, all cameras would share the same lens mount and the same hot shoe. But that’s not happening anytime soon. Most photographers don’t need or use the hot shoe at all. And for those passionate photographers, I think it makes so much sense to just lean into their hobby and gear lust. I think that every photographer should have more than one camera system.
