In photography, there is a whole lot that you could worry about. There are a lot of things that can grab your time and attention. But what should you really be worrying about? Where should your time and attention be focused?
People will spend a lot of time worrying about their gear. They'll spend hours and hours researching cameras. They'll go back-and-forth on the minor differences. They'll do web searches and read opinions from strangers on camera forums.

And that brings me to what is important in photography: creating art. Anyone can snap pictures, but it takes an artist to create something meaningful with an exposure. In order to create art, one must have photographic vision. You have to know what you are creating in order to create it.

If people would spend the time and energy that they spend researching equipment and instead put that effort into figuring out what they want to create and how to create it, they'd be much better photographers. Don't waste your time and energy with the unimportant things. Focus on what is important, and you'll be amazed at what you can create.
