    This is not invariable. Some 35 mm gear are more expensive than large format. My L lenses are definitely more expensive than my LF lenses

    Still nothing compared to motorcycles or cars. COE for one car alone can buy you tonnes of L glasses.

    haha, isn't that still a better deal to spend on your lens to the cam's body than to spent 4k on your fattybom3 body, which you know will never be able to last.......

    [QUOTE=yulee]You guys are either still single or you must have very understanding wives!QUOTE]

    Be the finance minister and also the prime minister....let her be the home affairs minister or a matter of fact, president also can....then no prob liow. Juz dont let her be the Queen as this role has high maintenance cost and thus no more funds to buy our toys

    Nah, juz joking...I guess just share with her ur passion, buy a small P&S to encourage her to pick up photography with u, ask them to be your model and let her know she is still your 1st priority even tho u r with your camera or PS mistress most of the time hehehehe

    Overall lens prices are about even when looking at professional glass in both 35mm and LF. That is you can expect to pay 2-4 thousand dollars per lens for the focal lengths and between 7-15,000 for long focal lengths.

    honestly speaking, why we can't stop the BUY BUY BUY virus ?

    buy a cam and a few lens can liao right? even with better lens and better cam come out, must be contented right?

    all of us say that it is the genius behind the lens and not the equipment that matter, why still buy buy buy?

    Well call it the ego thingy.

    1)They buy because it's new.
    2)They buy because it's the latest.
    3)They buy because their bank accounts are fat.
    4)They buy because they want to show off to their friends.

    After buying so much, their skills are still the same. One thing they cannot buy is skills and talent.

    actually rather than spending more $$$ on equipment, (unless real needs), why not spend $$$ on courses, workshops, books, development of films, etc to improve skills right?
