I wonder if it is silly to be sentimental about lenses and how many people actually are.
Will you sell the first lens you bought? Don't count cheapo kit lens but expensive better kits (nowadays can choose which lens to buy) can count.
My first lens was a 17-40 f4L and was my ONLY lens for at least a year so I shot everything with it.
So I'm kinda sentimental towards it.
I now want to get 2 other lens that will better serve my purpose and I will need to sell this lens to fund them or get a cheaper lens.
But really feeling kinda sentimental towards this lens - I have had and used it for 3+ years now. My photography has grown and evolved together with it. I do find it hard to let go. On top of sentimental feelings, I also feel a tinge of guilt if I were to sell it. It's like betraying it and just passing it to someone else after it had loyally served me for so long and from the very beginning. Am I crazy or abnormal? I wonder how many have such sentimental feelings to their lens or equipment.
Oh yes, I must also add that this lens will still be useful to have. However, it is not a necessity if I get the other 2 lens.
But if I don't want to carry 2 lens sometimes, this lens will be good to have and use.
