    Psychologically they are the same and sometime it is actually a kind of illness.
    At least, for photo gear, you can get used stuff, which are often pretty new and could save you a bundle. And of course, don't keep on changing gear! BTW, I used a Pentax ME for some 15 years before the shutter failed on me.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    its the same for hifi......

    no way to know what the manufacturer is coming out with, it can enhance or degrade value, so its pretty much a futile discussion !

    u cant really make $$ with other gadgets but you can with a camera

    so somehow u still can cover the cost, also the value of camera and lenses wont depreciate as fast as computer and car (esp in singapore), the maintenance cost is minimal too
    We are HDD of PC & FT are MB add to storage;
