Depends also on your ambition. The thing is, when you get a Red, you're working without "compromises" anymore: you know your camera is capable of producing images of the quality of"the Girl With The Dragon Tatoo" and other top of the chain films. When you have a camera like this, you will probably push yourself more in order to achieve better pictures, look for different jobs. I have to say that since I got my Epic, also coming from dslr's, I've learned immensely about the craft: about high end post production, about framing, about different approaches to certain shots because the Camera comes with so many possibilities to shoot, from framing to frame rates. This learning and this motivation is something subjective, of course. You're used to drive a Volkswagen, like I did. I always pushed that Volkswagen to the limit and felt I was limited by it. So I decided to drive a Ferrari and am going way, way faster than with my Volkswagen. Have I joined the Ferrari championship yet? Maybe not just yet as a regular, but did a couple of "races" and didnt do too bad. I still race amongst Volkswagens but with my Ferrari. Unfair racing, no doubt. I'm pushing, however, for more Ferrari Championship racing. When I used my Volkswagen in those races, I knew that I could come close but not "win". Now I can :) . Sorry for the analogy speak, but I felt it was the best way to describe what going Red can mean, if you want to push yourself further .
