    Default Should I buy a D90 ? - Poll

    It does not really matter D90 or not. We all know and agree that buying camera is just like buying a car, it is always wants instead of needs. So just a poll to collect responses

    I have a D80 now and assuming I have only S$1400 to spare, should I buy a D90 to satistify my desire to own one, knowing that the D90 price will sure to depreciate over time
    OR
    should I buy a counter in the stock market that is worth about the same value, since the stock price is so low now, there is a good chance that my investment will appreciate in the longer run.

    We shall see when come to photography as a hobby, would we follow our head or our heart. Have fun!

    Yes, satisfy your desire. Be happy! The stock market is worth playing with. Don't risk it.

    To follow your own heart or head...you should not even be doing a poll. If my mom sees me do this she would say I am spineless. But that's just my family's two cents.

    Thanks for all your response and input. Of course if I had only $1.4k to spare, then I dont even need to think too hard about it(may be I dont even have S$1.4k). I am just curious what would be the eventual polling outcome. When hobby is involved, there is no right and wrong answer, your answer is the correct answer to yourself.

    Thanks for your participation once again.

    Hi thanks to all of you for all your participation. I have mentioned right from the beginning "It does not really matter D90 or not..", so I want to highlight this is not a brand bias poll.

    Just want to see when come to photography as a hobby,
    how many will follow their heart
    and
    how many will follow their head, remain rationalised and resisting the buying temptation


    When we try to justify to our spouse or parents, we said passion for photography. our spouse and parents will said we are crazy....

    If the TS can start a poll on whether or not to buy a D90, I think somebody should start one on what to eat for lunch every day during weekdays.

    Mmmmm.... chicken rice or fried hokkien mee? Or should I just pick-up a Subway sandwich for a healthier alternative?
