Remember this: I have been shooting extensively with Sigmas for a year and never upgraded anything. The more I shoot the less I feel any inferiority about my gears. Unless getting more assignments which require the highest standands in more chanllenging situations, I won't easily dump my Sigmas. You need some decent equipment but not necessarily the best which are the most expensive unless you are really rich. Learn to use you systems well. In 90% of time, it's the man behind the camera accomplishes or fails the job, not the other way round.
Wish you have fun in your quest for the ART of photography.
