I don't think there are too many filmmakers or film, just like I don't feel there are too many bands, singers and songwriters or artists or sculptures etc. I am not saying the OP is the case, but often people feel entitled because of they desire to make a living from art and resent others that are making money and feel their failure is due to supply and demand and less worthy competition. I do not make any money from my films by design, I love making films and devote no time to promoting them, but instead devote myself to making my next film. In no way do I imply you should feel this way. What ever art it is it is a business. So, it is not filmmaking, it is filmmaking business or music, it is the music business. So many people are great at art and lousy at business, but in terms of money those that are good at business and mediocre at art make money and those great at art do not due to lack of marketing skills. There is no entitlement, no one owes anyone anything. Want to make money with filmmaking? Be good with marketing and business or find someone to partner with that is, case in point Troma Films.
A real problem with resolve is that it has to have a smokin fast computer to run. By far Vegas is the easiest, by being easy, means that you will dig into the program deeper faster, very intuitive and all other NLE have been influenced by its innovative (at the time) design.
Another thing is that most of us have huge piles of equipment we are never going to use, when you have little money, you make very careful purchases, when you have a pile of money, you end up with piles of equipment that you don't use.
Just my opinion as with every other comment to your post. Seems like a very common recipe for failure to load yourself up with debt when you don't have the business. You could alternatively use what you have and rent what you don't have and as your business grows and as important as your skills grow can afford to buy with cash what you need. If your business income cannot pay for what you want right now, likely that is a recipe for failure and is so so common. Instead of going into business, grow into business and if the market slows down etc, then you can weather the storm because you don't have a pile of debt. You will find when you are in debt you will take jobs that otherwise you would avoided and end up as a result of being screwed, in more debt or being sued by demanding customers. I know not what you want to hear, but hope you don't learn the hard way.
This likely is not what you want to hear, but is another opinion that might be helpful even if not welcome. Among my cameras, I use two different EOS-M. I am shocked at how great they look when used well. The key words being "when used well" if you hope that a camera body will result in greater quality likely you will be disappointed. What ever you lack in using a eos-m will be present in any more expensive camera you buy. You should consider what you are using for lenses? I use the speed boaster made for the eos-m. You can use raw with Magic Lantern. I can see getting another camera that does better image stabilization or slow motion. Yet it is not an upgrade if the faults are in the operator. With a more expensive camera you do get bragging rights and public image can be important, but here is an example of video that was made with a camera anyone can purchase for $100 https://vimeo.com/9080438 I strongly suspect that you will "upgrade" your camera due to the belief a purchase in a more expensive camera is more important than learning to use cameras, but that is the American Way, we all have opinions and you are welcome to yours and I am just suggesting that other factors may be the true need.
Ahh a true filmmaker you are Mitchell Cannon, I sense the filmic force within you
