    So far no balance at all.
    It's just PLAY.
    no work
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    To begin with, it's tough to define 'balance' ... I guess each of us a different notion of achieving an equilibria with work and family/life ...

    Impulsive? Maybe.....probably due to unhappy event in the office during the day.....But the tot has been lingering for years....this thread could be the catalyst....anyhow....48 hours cooling off period....it is a big decision nevertheless

    oic, so there were events that lead up to the tot of leaving. u might 1 2 sound others out before the decision is made. i cant give any advice, as i've been in similiar quit/stay situation.

    all that best, hope ur next job turns out differently.

    Was at Comex just now....hand itchy to touch the D700...the feel was so solid....the shutter was so fast....so responsive.....the view finder was so huge and so bright....and can even see the nice bokeh with the 50mm f1.8....I just feel that it's unbelievable to get a bad shot with this cam....tio poison jialat jialat...damn it

    Come to my work thing, vending off my anger here really helps to cooling off thing a bit....I guess quiting without a job might be too risky in current job market, so have decided to hang on while seaching for new one This probably the best of both world that I can think off as I can still affort a D700 by year end....bo pian....the dark side is too strong

    never let emotions interfere with sound judgement...

    in these uncertain times betta cut back on fancy gear upgrade... the path to upgrading gears has no end. when i realise that, i put a cap on "throwing good $$$ into an endless pit"....

    work/life balance? bank account oso need some balance....
