    student here!

    When I was a student in schools (several different schools), my camera was two simple rings formed by the thumbs and index fingers.

    Now that I am a student of life and photography, and having WORKED HARD for years, I am able to "upgrade" my photography equipment.

    But my most expensive (priceless!) equipment remains my eyes with the "thumb-finger" rings!

    whilst on the subject of students money and equipment, is their anyway for example of paying for 70-200VR lens in instalments so easy on wallet, spread out over time?
