Many errant apostrophes, though certainly not all, are put here by the auto-fill/auto-correct in iPads. I spend much time removing them.
Regarding the question on why had used so many cameras, well it is a combination of having started with a borrowed XTi/400D, soon acquiring my own pre-owned XTi, then quickly realizing the advantages of a 40D or 50D, with the result of acquiring a pre-owned 40D. Soon afterward, when I was assigned to do some aerial shooting, I realized the 7D would have some advantages, especially as a colleague, with whom I shared the assignment, was using a 7D. So, my upgrade schedule was very quick. One XTi was traded for credit on a lens purchase.
The difference in placement of controls on the 40D and 7D resulted in occasional confusion, so when a chance arrived to acquire a gently-used, pre-owned 7D, I acquired my second 7D. I like having two cameras with me at work.
Also, my wife is a photographer. I started with her XTi, which has reverted to being a family camera. She had previously used an agency-issued 40D at her job, and is comfortable with its controls, so my 40D has also become a family camera.
Canon 5Ds R/7D2/7D/5D/40D/1D2N/M3; Nikon F6/D3s/D700/FM3A/1Dx/Coolpix A. Lens selection undergoing changes; some favorites: Zeiss 2/135 APO Sonnar, Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS and 135L, Nikkor 14-24/2.8G and 24-70/2.8G.
