    Taking good care is a definite must, especially sensitive equipment like cameras/lens. I'm not asking you to throw/trash the equipment around, but do be careful thats all.

    If a person is so obessed by the fact that he has already spent loads of money on expensive equipment and end up being too obsessed with caring the equipment so that he can resell them later, then will he be able to go out and enjoy photography with peace of mind ? Go figure.

    Being too careful at times can cause even more accidents....because your mind is concentrating on the thought that you've to protect the equipment....

    Relax and the world will be with you.

    Money is of course important, but you should know that getting into DSLR game is going into an bottomless pit.

    Just make sure you're enjoying every moment of it and not worry about losing a screw, scratching your tripod or getting dust on UV filters.

    Good one there ReSpawN.
    I seen people using the air blower like a hair dryer just to blow one tiny speck of dust, which seems to irritate the hell out of the photographer...
