    Default Well Ian and Jed if you gentlemen count the 'other' way.......

    and measure your Nett expenses on camera equiptment AFTER taking into considerations the revenues generated, that should put you guys on the inverse side of the equation ... i.e. having gotten beyond recouping your investments and more.

    I took the poll to be in Singapore Dollars, which is about 0.55 of the value of the US Dollar.

    Haha, with small lens purchases (under 3K SGD) I expect to recoup the cost of the purchase within 14 months at the maximum plus there's the tax amortisation to be taken in to account

    One man's meat is another man's poison I suppose. If u make a living out of photography, that kind of price is manageable. Not for amateurs though. How if I tell u a Hollywood star can earn US$1,000,000 for a day's work? Is that cheap to any of you?

    Agreed!!!.. Damn expensive hobby.... But then come to think of it... Audiophies and car maniacs are also as bad though... heee...

    The worst are IT maniacs who upgrade their PCs every 3-6 months... but then with the advent of Digitals, looks like we are joining their ranks soon!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!....

    Good luck to digital people... (actually its just sour grapes that I can't afford a DSLR!!!! hahahahaha!!!! )
