    Bought a 40 year old Speed Graphic off eBay, seller said it was a 4x5, but when it came it was the 6x9 version, and the seller refused to refund me.....to make matters worse: I bought it cause a friend asked to look around for one, now I am suck with it :-).

    Now I attach my digital scanback to it, and it works perfectly!.......blend of past and present :-)

    Second one: Nikon F90X, used once only.......I never use AF......

    I regret being married to Miss EOS.

    Now I can't even look at beauties like Nikon, Olympus, Minolta, Contax, Olympus etc.

    The law in my country doesn't not allow two wives.

    Update:

    The Sigma 18-125mm F3.5-5.6 DC ... now @ B & S now. Not because it's no good ... bought it in a moment of folly and realize that I don't really need it ...

    Default Kodak digicam

    I bought a second hand Kodak digicam about 4 years back. The beast was huge and bulky, took 4 AA batteries which would drain in 1/2 an hour. Startup took 15 minutes and focusing took 10 minutes per shot (at least it felt like that). My ancient canon P&S film cam worked like a rocket compared to this dinosaur. Sold it at a big loss, since digicam costs go down so fast. Piece of cr@p.

    My xpan must list as my biggest regret. I love the camera, it takes superb pictures and the RF system is unbeatable. But at the same time, it is hard to justify bringing it out when you own a leica as well since the leica has faster lenses. I really wish the xpan wasn't f4. These days, it gets a short workout when i am bored or when i am travelling. Thats the main one although i sure as hell have had lots of mistakes!

    Aaahhhh..... Superzooms.

    Either u hate them or u love them.

    It had grown frm a 'love' to a 'hate' for me though. Horrible picture quality at the widest end.

    I have mix feelings about my Coolpix 5400.

    Love its swivel screen design, size, weight, the color tones it can capture, micro-closeup function and battery life span.

    Dislike its inability to focus well & fast under low light, little depth of field, slow write speed to CF card.
