let's share on how much u willing to spend on equipment and the quality u wiling to pay.
I buy the most expensive lens, body, accessories I cannot afford (by loan, installment etc)
I buy the best equipment, lens, body, accessories I can afford.
I buy average equipment, lens, body, accessories
I buy cheapo equipment, lens, body, accessories.
i like second tier equipment. i go for yesteryear 'best' models, where everyone dump them and buy latest stuff. i embraced the old models like 28-70 or 17-35 to newer models like 24-70 or 16-35 as the earlier are 'workhorses' for photographers years ago. and thereare at least 40% cheaper than the current ones.
anything else other than lenses? 80% to 90% of my equipment are 2nd hand.Originally Posted by Belle&Sebastain

Get what you need, it will be sad if you are held back by your equipment.
most of my stuff are 1st hand, sometimes i see over at the Buy & Sell, will spur the urge to own them, den i buy from them...
Logging Off. "You have 2,631 messages stored, of a total 400 allowed." don't PM me.
All my Leica lenses are bought 2nd hand...for almost only half the price of a new one. My SF-20 flash unit also 2nd hand...save me quite alot of money!
Only my Leica M6 and the motordrive is bought brand new.
Sigh... If I earn $3K/mth, L lens, no prob.
But den I have to hold back and sacrifice a few things for a single lens. Buying a new lens is kinda like going overseas trip for me.
My stuff are almost 2nd hand too
Body + lens+ filters + tripod
The only original are
bag + flash + 50mm 1.8
