    Default Should i?

    This poll is for someone. He can only get a DSLR if he quit smoking, a condition stipulated by a dear one, so should this person do so?

    PS: This is not abt me since i don't smoke.

    If we just look @ $$, I suppose either options will still make your friend lose money!

    not me - i vote yes. If u r talking about saving money - better dun smoke cos if kena cancer - the health costs will be substantial - can buy a couple of DSLRS

    By the same token, if you friend can control his expenditure and lust over the hobby (hey, don't expect him to stop upon acquiring the camera body!) and still spend sufficient quality with the family, then I'd certainly encourage him! It'll gonna be a win-win. Fyi, contrary to common beliefs, I have actually successfully discouraged some of my friends from picking up photography!

    no. you should quit smoking because of health reasons. so you can live long enough to own a DSLR.

    The DSLR can be an incentive to stop smoking, then once he/she gets enough money to buy the DSLR, it should be long enough for him/her not to touch another ciggie again.
    ... If he/she is determined enough, that is.

    Remember - smokers getting DSLR. Smoke and CCD/CMOS DO NOT GO WELL TOGETHER!!

    So, quit smoking first.

    Imagine the amount of money you've spent on those cigarettes over the years, could possibly get you a 1Ds liao.

    I'll vote "NO". He should quit smoking NOT because he can get a DSLR as a result, but because he knows it'll be good for him, good for his loved ones around him, and good for his children (if he has any).
