Thanks to those of you who have posted to my question.
In my photography hobby, we sometimes discuss a concept called "Measurebating". Measurebators are those who spend more time testing and critiquing equipment and techniques than they actually spend using the equipment for its intended purpose.
My personal philosophy is do whatever works for you and have a good time with it
