i'm curious to know about the durability of DSLRs and lenses. approximately how many photos ( shutter count ) would be taken before a DSLR dies off totally ( shorter life than PnS? )? let's just say 1000d.
same goes for lenses - is there any lifespan for it? assuming it'd always be well handled, and kept in air-tight cabinet after use.
still thinking whether to step into the dslr world. currently playing with LX3, f200exr, 870is. back in my army days i played with my unit's D40x. felt it's quite hard to use ( in terms of getting my desired output ) even when using AF. i'm really bad at using MF because sometimes thru the viewfinder it's hard to justify if it's 100% sharp. how do you guys solve this problem?
yep i know about the costs involved. haha. actually already quite poisoned.. don't know what to do now.
i'm pretty much focussed on portraiture ( although you wouldn't see them in my portfolio, prefer to be anonymous ) .. so any good tips to recommend? i always strive to shoot under good natural lighting..
my portfolio ( all shot using PnS! ) can be found here anyway - all comments welcome.
