    I have a FF and OMD (also RX100). With the spring here, I want to get out and roam. But over the last 4 years, I've always ended up with a full frame camera usually by Halloween. In the past, I've perhaps mistakenly bought and sold my complete FF system.

    I think I'm coming to understand that I like a FF camera for the holidays and in the winter, for indoors, for lots of flash use. But in the summer I want light and easy, and available light shooting.

    Can there be "seasonal" systems. I'm trying to think of when I will use my FF camera again between now and October, and I'm not coming up with many scenarios.

    If it is a seasonal thing -- should I sell the 6D body, but keep the lenses. Bodies lose value quickly. Maybe keep the lens and flash head in storage, and rebuy a FF body again in September.

    Anyone else find they use certain cameras in certain seasons?

    LOL Gary. Now I can't even take the question seriously :wink:

    I don't have seasonal cameras, but I do have situational cameras. Each camera has its strengths, I just pick the right gear for where I'm going and what I expect to be doing. I don't think there's any particular seasonal correlation for me, but YMMV depending on what kind of stuff you shoot.
