    Default Why did you choose your present camera?

    I am curious to find out what is the major influence which make us made that mammoth plunge on that expensive toy of ours


    Maybe there's some other reasons that I left out??

    I'm a sucker for comments in dpreview forums. Everytime I visit that site I get this irrational urge to buy a new lens or camera. Like right now, a 1D is looking mighty tempting....

    Bought the best I could afford but also because of their strong construction... this is the same with all my other bodies.

    Are you sure?
    Are you absolutely sure?

    Are you sure it's not because David A. H. uses it too?

    BTW, where do you want to go for a photography vacation?

    ha! u referring to the nat geo series? nah.....i've heard of him looooong time ago. he's old news

    if i have ever had a photography model to look up to, it would have be Sam Abell. as u can see, my signature ha always been a quote of his

    now that's a photojournalist as well as an artist

    for those who haven't discovered him.....
