    I think when you are climbing a mountain, NEVER look down...
    So I think the same applies here; I better don't count...

    At least be honest and add a qualifier like "until my camera needs replacing because it mysteriously broke down when new model came out", "until next year", etc.

    I've spent around that amount in total as well. But now i've also a new hobby - portable audio and have spent $2.4K+ on my current setup. My next DSLR will be FF so at least another $3K+ will be added.

    Mine was spend within a year!
    Selling away some stuff now to offset the cost~
    Seriously, if spend on a hobby, it is ok la.

    When i just joined the workforce in 2004 and is earning 2.3-4.5k (OT and Overseas allowances), i spend money like water.
    Did a calculation in late 2006.
    I don't even know where my $$$ goes too!
    20-30K at least!!! Ah, 2 x D3 and 2 sets of zoom trinity!

    Wah, watches more powerful. But the value normally goes up instead of depreciation. For photography, our monetary value goes down, but our spiritual value goes way up.

    No interest in watches though. For my portable audio rig, consist of IEMs, PMP, amp, an interconnect and custom earmolds, already $2400+.

    So you're using the Reagan Defense? Unless your wife, girl friend(s) and / or debtors knows your online ID, it's safe to tell us Think of this at a support group. While it may not help you spend less, it helps justify what you are spending
