    Don't forget to list your pro gear in your signature.

    The longer the list the better.

    Dun mind my version:

    Camera muz be light weight
    Wife muz be heavy weight [to save a bundle in mattress]

    I haven't touched my Tk12-24 for almost a year. So, in order to clear some space, I sold it off. Then, after 3months, I got a job that needs the WA lens. So, bopian, got to quickly find one used one. After the job, it is now untouched for more than 3months liao.

    I did it without posting any photo.

    Only SSTC posts in Kopitiam.

    No one questioned me about how I got my seniority.

    1. Buy the best that you can afford
    2. Buy the best, forget the rest
    3. Try the essence of each brand
    4. Find a good reason, or any reason, to buy
    5. The more the merrier
    6. Listen to your heart
