Yea, I probably will. I'm still a bit annoyed tbh that he's getting 5-6 lenses when he takes photos like that, and he constantly asks me what aperture and shutter speed are or how they affect depth of field and such

Tell him to pick up Understanding Exposure 3rd Edition by Bryan Peterson and call it a day?

No, he's serious For a lack of a better term, he's a gear whore. The sad part is I recc'd him to the Siggy 30mm f/1.4 in hopes that he'd learn how to take nice low light/narrow DoF shots, but obviously that hasn't been the case.

He's been looking at some pretty damn expensive setups, yet he asks me continuously about shutter speed and aperture and always gets them wrong/mixed up, despite me sending him tons of material on the subject. Sometimes he still thinks higher f-stop = larger aperture, or smaller aperture = narrower DoF

And +1 to the reading online thing. I pretty much learned exclusively from the internet.

I learnt my the technical stuff off a book and all the creative stuff off websites.

If you want to be kinda passive aggressive just buy him this book for Easter/his birthday.

Also, regarding the bags, he just took future proofing to a whole new level.

I personally want one myself, but the non-IS doesn't offer full weather sealing and the IS is out of my price range, as is the f/2.8.

EDIT: So sold my 50mm, considering letting go of my 85mm...

Lol, really? The 85 is my bread-and-butter lens. I love it.
