This isn't news to a few of you, but I've found a good way to hate an occupation you previously loved is to study it, get two degrees in it, then work in that field for about 25 years. I've absolutely left photography behind as a profession now. My livelihood entirely comes from something else, though it does involve a small amount of simple product photography that I can do in my sleep. Now I'm itching to enjoy photography again. I wouldn't mind producing some new work to decorate my house and the offices of my business. I've also finally warmed up to the capabilities of digital. More accurately, digital has gotten closer to my expectations. That took a while. Moving from medium and large format film to early DSLR is largely what drove me out of the profession. The best that came out of the Fuji S1 (my first DSLR) was basically garbage, and merely suggesting shooting film, even ten years ago, would lose the client in no time flat. So, I know there are a few real photo enthusiasts here, and I thought I'd just see what suggestions anyone had. Remember, my knowledge level with general photography is extremely high. I just don't keep up with current equipment, which changes much faster than it ever used to. Here's what I have in digital equipment. I also have extensive MF (Bronica SQ-A) and LF (Cambo Master PC) systems, but I doubt they will do anything other than collect dust, unless I ever decide to shoot and process B&W film, which could happen. I won't be changing from Nikon, BTW. I'm not looking to invest that much time and expense. My hodgepodge of lenses is because some of it dates back 20 years to film. Nikon D200, Tokina 20-35 2.8 FX, Tokina 12-24 4.0 DX, Nikon 18-70 DX, Nikon 70-180 Micro(!) FX, Tamron 70-300 FX, Tamron 17-50 2.8 DX. Tamron 200-400 FX. A Panasonic LX7 is arriving tomorrow for carrying around. I'm wanting to upgrade to a new camera body. I figure that image quality must have improved quite a bit since the D200. I want to be able to use any lens, so it has to have a focus motor. I'm just not prepared to go full frame, due mainly to the cost to replace some lenses, so it seems the D7100 is pretty much my only option. I also want true, uncompressed Raw output. I also have Photoshop CS6, and keep up to date on that, as well as Lightroom, which I have never actually used. I hear it has nice image capabilities and may mostly be able to replace PS so long as I don't need to do layout or multi-layer things. Can it do things like multi-image panoramas and HDR? Anyway, I welcome any comments or suggestions.
