    while there, i was also having a domke and nikon camera(inside the bag) with me too. for me, if my domke contains 6 lenses and etc, etc. i will not carry it on my shoulder while thumbing through books. a bag which look substantially 'unfull' and weighs under 3 kg would impact the carrier differently as compared to one which is full, stretched and as least 10 kg in weight.

    maybe, with hindsight, i should have asked to view what was inside the bag and weigh it at a 10cts coin operated weighing machine. then, we do not need to go down this route.

    me having problem, well, i acknowledge that you are entitled to your view. it is ok with me.

    Also for all we or you know the guy may have been taking shots right before going in to the bookstore.

    Finally, what's his age got to do with the price of wheatgerm on the Siberian gold market?

    No offense intended but it sounds like you're the one with the problem.

    Life is like that. Sports cars are meant for middle aged men only. (partly because of the price tag)

    Domke bag expensive meh? Compare to Billingham

    Nikon D2X expensive meh? Compare to Leicas or Canon 1Ds MkII

    If you really want to show, must show the best of the best......

    A few Leicas body, with all the wide, standard and mid range lens. Maybe carry a Billingham bag? That alone probably will be more than 20,000 easily....

    Or a 1Ds MkII with 50mm f1.0, 35mm f1.4, 85mm f1.2, 70-200 f2.8, 135mm f2 and a Billingham bag....about $25,000-$30,000?

    So the idea of this thread is to remind us that you can afford a domke and 6 lenses when you are still so young? Wah, I'm so jealous. How I hope i can get a domke when I reach your age.

    What is wrong with that???

    I also have a domke bag, not really that expansive what...
    And guess what, once i get my insurance money, I go camera shop visiting with a certain % of that money. Old men have money to spend.
    You mean that after slogging for so many years a man cannot buy expansive toys?

    Sheesh!

    so i see.... this thread is to express your jealousy toward richer folk?
    its not about being fortunate most of the time man... some people are rich because they worked hard in the past and now are living off bank interest!
    if you jealous that you are not to "fortunate", then go work hard and earn your moola!
