    Wow, average seems to be around 5000 since quite evenly distributed. Total 1400+ people voted... so multiply by 5000, that is $7,000,000. I think we should get Canon/Nikon/Sony/etc to throw a big party for us since we contributed to much to their revenue.

    Most of my friends "under declared" the amount they spent on their toys to their CFO, so whenever I'm go over to their place, I'm always careful not to mention or ask about price.

    Haha....

    the poll was "how much have you" and not " you have within" so hitting $15k is quite achievable over time.

    Oops did I said achieved? That's not an achievement but liability. Leave some rat poision for me.

    It's nice to know there're so many people out there who've been infected with the BBB virus. I think i'll go work for nikon, canon, tamron, sigma or some other camera/lens company when I graduate. Then can get discount on equipment too.

    I've spent about s$2.1k so far, with plans to up that amount with a macro lens, a decent tripod and a fast medium telephoto. All on an internship pay of S$500 a month. I'm going to have to eat paper shreddings for lunch.

    Oh dear... it was just a couple of months ago I voted $3K - $5K - it's now in the $5K - $10K range... and this is within err... 8 months.

    Would be fun to know what all of us are doing for a living...haha.
