Right now, I am considering moving from 1.25" eyepieces to 2". While I'm convinced of the quality of the premium eyepieces, it would take me years to afford a complete set and, if I go that route, I will necessarily pick them up piecemeal. Would I be wise to follow that route, knowing that in a few years time I'll have not wasted any money?
Or would I be wiser to buy a complete set of design X, which have great price/performance ratios and slowly replacing them with premium eyepieces?
Or would I be wiser to buy a few of type Y for higher-power viewing, which are still pretty expensive, but not as expensive as the 100 degrees field-of-view eyepieces, but maybe just buy 1 of those for wide-angle viewing?
Or another strategy? I like to look at everything, so ultimately I do want a pretty wide range of eyepieces. But I kind of hate that with my current mish-mash, I have a "lumpy distribution" in quality.
