    So far I have spent over S$2K on my camera, lens and a camera bag. Going to splash more when I have more money in time to come.

    Lolz... easily spend almost 2.5 K in no time (really no time, like 30 mins, walk to the shop... buy this buy that buy that... count... walao... 2k... then forget to buy that and that... next day come again and spend 500... total 2500)

    And still want to buy more... luckily have GF that always watching my wallet (since I buy the D90). She said, need to get some photo prize or got some assignment to earn money before can buy new equipment... well... that is a long way to go... hoping to snick in one more lens before end of this year... lolz... or maybe two... or three.... blablabla (the virus start to kick in).

    hahaha... but honestly, still hoping another cheal telezoom lens. looking at B/S section every week.

    Once the DSLR is here, the dry cabinet follows, camera bag next in the queue then lens.... the flash then more lens bla bla bla. It will keep snowball and you will be badly sucked into depths of BBB Hell......

    Ya the BBB virus is pretty lethal. I feel glad that I was able to "cure" myself of it 2 years ago. I sold off my D80 + 70-200VR F2.8, 18-200VR, 50mm F1.8, Tamron 17-50 F2.8, Tamron 90mm Macro, SB800, 2 Lowepro bags, a couple of B+W filters and dry cabinet. I think should be near near $6k I spent on these items.

    I've just gotten back into photography after a long period away, bought a Panasonic LX3 for $680 and very happy with it so far. No urge to buy a DSLR at all coz I know the commitments and expenses involved.
    Life is like photography, we develop from the negatives.

    I share same sentiments with the other bros- think about it realise grossly overspending. Spent more on dslrs than on the kids...

    I was wondering why no other companies want to come in and imitate the Canon and Nikon systems so that they can come in and offer some price competition to the market- come on, we have technology to bring humans to space, how complicated is the technology in a lens? The cost of the lenses is only a minute fraction of the selling price- its the oligopoly that's keeping the price high.

    USA should start the ball rolling and give Japan a run for its money
