For example, he spends $1k+ on ONE tyre, that a whopping $4000++ on wheels alone.That can get me a canon 5d2!! Not to go on about the car seat, steering wheel, spoiler etc.
    I think it's almost the same, for instance, 4 pieces of big rubber $4k++, one canon 300mm F2.8 can cost up to $6k+, canon 400mm F2.8L $10k++, 500mm F4L $16k++. I don't think cars can spent some much in one short. $16k I can, up turbo,inter-cooler,brake caliper, up engine, steering,rims,seats, sound system etc. Further lens are just A little piece of plastic/steel + glass. Anyway if I got the money I don't mind spending on Camera accessories lol. The reason I pick up photography,mainly because I started to fond in taking pictures. secondly it's because if I spend my money on photography accesories easier to hide from my wife. Haha.. Car accessories once I change she know. I ever change my rims from silver to gold small to bigger size and I told my wife I send for respray, know what? She F me upside down.

My question now is wheneer I saw someone doing something different from what I'm doing I feel like trying. Hence, should I collect all kind of lens for different purpose. Let's say for instance like potrait, wide angle,fish eye,macro birding and night landscape? Or should I/we concentrate at 1 thing at a time. I'm not rich ,got to save up eat bread everyday to fund for lens. Secondly do you Guys collect different lens for different event/occasion/purpose too?

    i think the most impt direction in this hobby is to shoot more and be learn from the pics u get.

    If the pics arent up to standard, (in your case ..birding [which i have no experience with, im into catting]) there are many other factors to consider before putting down hard earned money on super expensive lenses
    Nikon D750 and some manual focus primes :)
