$1k to $2k
$2k to $3k
$3k to $5k
$5k to $10k
$10k to $15k
Bought an entry level model overseas at a rather cheap price so overall I did not spend as much but personally, it's a rather big step up
It's like calculating "how much have you spent on your wife?". Unecessary. Unless you're filing for divorce
along the route of photography, it is inevitable to spend/waste some money on some baby/full grown white elephants, be it amatuer/advance/professional photographer, there is no escape, that's why there are buy and sell section.
If it is only possible to buy just one camera, lens and flash and tripod and use it thro out the whole process of learning photography then it will be wonderful, but very sad for the photo trade.
In fact, the arrival of digital era had cause a lot of the photo-industry to fold up and many families have lost their job. For me, I had seen five professional processing labs closed one after the other.
Canon 7D, Fujifilm X-T1, 70-200IS f4L, 17-55 f2.8, G12, Fujifilm 23mm, 35mm & 18-55mm.
I think the subject should change....should be how much you INVESTED.
"spent" means $$$ went down the drain...
For hobbyists, it is correct to use the word "spent" because it is an expense. Hobbyists buy equipment not for the sake of earning anything. It's no different from say someone who spends a couple of hundred on an iphone.
Anyway, it's only money down the drain if the lens you bought spends most of its time in the dry cabinet.
| Nikon D700; AF-S 14-24 f/2.8GED; AF 20 f/2.8D; AF 50 f/1.4D; SB400| Tamron AF 28-75 f/2.8 A09NII|
That was like seven years back? I'm not surprised, people are are willing to spend.Eh, who is the one who spent > $15K? SO RICH AR!?
Ha!...I'm preparing the Rat poison...
Spent money likr no tomorrow.Think back SCARY
Well, if you own any 400 f/2.8, 500mm f/4, 600mm f/4 or 800mm f/5.6, that will easily hit over the S$15k mark at any time.
I think a lot of pro out there already exceeded this S$15k mark after the years. But, most of them already get it back from their jobs.
If you are not a working pro, do think carefully when spending. Unless, you can win competitions to cover it back.
