As a freelancer I work with my own equipment (gear). Although I can shoot with most cameras on the market today, I've been partial to Canon Cine cameras (C300/C500). Upgrading one's "gear" is a time honored tradition, requiring many hours of research, testing and conversations with peers. Most of my time, attention and available funds goes into what I need to create the images for my clients i.e. Camera, lenses and the various support items. Why make the upgrades if the gear I have "still works"? The reasons are many, but for me its part of the quest to improve my skills, knowledge and the quality of work for my clients.
