    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!!!! )
    Worse if its maniac on comp, camera and also hifi!!!

    i remember some old timer once told me: IF YOU'RE IN PHOTOGRAPHY, DROP AUDIOPHILE AND VICE VERSA. IF YOU RUN BOTH, YOU'll RUN DRY(no money laa)...

    well that is some words of wisdom i think....

    Ah...to some, it's no longer an issue on how much we have spent but rather how much more are we going to spend!

    The huge expences may not from the SLR body itself but the necessary accessories that caused a boom.

    Cheers.
