    Which is why I simply added a Z50 two lens kit to my existing gear.

    Serious amatuer photography inhales cash and time, no matter what you do; always has; always will. You can try to minimize it, but it all costs.

    My little low-budget trip to the middle of Florida earlier this month cost me over $1000, and that was with me driving, shopping for hotel discounts, and eating evening meals from the Publix deli. Looking back, I now also realize that it was actually more expensive for me to drive my own car and that I should have rented one for the trip.

    You might not travel that much for photography; but when you do, it will add up quickly. I look at it this way, taking two week-long trips is going to cost me nearly the equivalent of a new D850.

    YEs, andfor me that means if I want to travel, I just can't go too crazy on buying gear.
