I've run into a little extra cash from our tax returns, and would like to put it towards my photography. I've been talking myself in circles over the last few days about what to buy, and my head hurts at this point. :smile: As I have learned a lot from this site since joining, and since I respect the opinions of this group, I wanted to throw my internal debate out there and get a few opinions to help me come to a decision. The debate is this: buy one, possibly two more expensive lenses, or spread the money out over a less expensive lens or two as well as computer/monitor upgrades. My current kit is a G5 body, the 14-42 kit lens, the Panasonic 45-150, the Sigma 19mm, and the Sigma 30mm. I have a couple of Pentax lenses and an adapter as well. Originally I was thinking of springing for the Oly 45mm 1.8, and with any luck the PL 25mm 1.4, if I could find both at good used prices. I know these are both great lenses, and I'm sure I'd love shooting with them. But on the other hand, I am in need of a computer system upgrade as well. Without going into tech spec overload, I've got an older Dual-Core system, with 3 gig of RAM, and an older NEC monitor, but I am still running Vista because I never had a good reason to upgrade. But now the newest versions of PS and LR will only run on Windows 7 or 8, so for the last couple of months I have been editing my photos on a borrowed laptop. I have the NEC monitor hooked up as a second monitor, but I got it cheap in the first place because it is beat up a bit. Having an older system was never an issue for me, but now that I am trying to really improve my photography, and hopefully really work at it this coming year, I am thinking a more robust system, and especially a larger higher quality monitor(perhaps even purchasing a display calibration tool) would improve my photography as well. So instead of spending most of what I have to spend on the 25mm and 45mm, I was thinking I should by a new monitor, upgrade my computer, and maybe pick up the Sigma 60mm and maybe even a highly rated legacy prime, like a Rokkor, if I have any cash to spare. So does it seem like it would be a waste to buy the PL 25mm and the Oly 45mm if I didn't have the right monitor and computer to process the images? I really want both lenses, but I almost pulled the trigger on them today, but kept thinking I might be better off spreading the money over the system upgrades and maybe the Sigma 60mm since I have the 19mm and the 30mm already. Thank you very much for any insights or opinions any of you can offer.
