    That's how the camera manufacturers make money mah. Prey on the ignorance of consumers.

    Anyway, if I were you, I'll just say "6MP enough for me...otherwise too many megapixels need big memory, then need to spend more money on memory cards..."

    Other common misconceptions for DSLR being lousy (among my friends) is the inability not to have LCD live preview and cannot take video.

    Den u simply say, "Encik can give me $32,000?"

    Encik: Want so much for fuck?!

    "U say one mah, more MP clearer and sharper. I know u sign on damn rich one. $32K for a 30MP camera no problem one."

    Alternatively.... If u dun want such a confrontational approach... Juz ask, "Encik, den ur camera how many MP har?"

    If he replies a figure lower than yours, juz answer, "How come har? Thought u say more MP sharper and clearer?"

    If he replies a figure higher than yours juz answer, "Wah... so powerful ah? Show me some of ur sharp and clear photos leh. My one lousy."

    When he comes to the topic of price, juz tell him, "My camera price? Very normal and cheap only. The lowest end of the PROFESSIONAL series one actually. Only $4K plus nia." Sure to shut him up.

    D70 + Vertical grip + 17-35 f/2.8 + SB800
    U see this kind of setup more den $4K liaoz....

    Ok, dun say that kind of setup, even a D70 & kit lens + Vertical Grip + SB800 already like coming $3K liaoz (ok, maybe $2.8K or so).

    Even if threadstarter's using a 350D, he throw in a 17-40L + 480EX is already more than $3K liaoz.
