    Whether it's going to end up expensive or not depends very much on the hobbyist himself.
    If you know your budget, plan accordingly for your primary set up. Whatever people say about this-good that-good, listen but don't need to act. But deep inside, slowly plan for next equipment upgrade. This keeps outlay realistic and ensures affordability.
    For those who do have a certain amount of capital, and don't mind spending them, and have friends and forum kakis who keep potentiating each other, chances are, their purchases will be fast & furious and the end result will not be cheap.

    There is always cost involved in everything you do. Cars, Hifi, Computer, Photography, Watches, even fishing...there are fishing rods that costs few thousand dollars.

    Maybe you should see value in the equipment you buy. Does the 50mm give u the nice bokeh compared to the kit lens? Your Tamron 28-75 allows you to shoot at f2.8 which the kit lens can't. If you can't see the value that you can get out of your equipment, it will always be expensive.

    Relax...you just started. Wait till some friendly clubsnapper lend you a few L lenses to test test.
