    Couldn't agree more. If the person holding the camera doesn't own the eye then we've got some jiggery pokery going on. Or someone needs to dial 999.

    it is mainly because of a secret agreement, that when ever someone who ask which camera to buy, we just mention the high end stuff

    What's new? Kids these days snuck off with their parent's iPhones or Expensive whatchamacallits while they were not looking. I won't be surprised if some actually do that... unless of course we see the parents behind them do the supportive parent bid...

    I think I'll be amused if I'm entitled to a free show when they actually managed to drop the expensive equipment in front of my vision... then again, maybe the parents won't get angry, but who the heck cares?? It is really none of our beeswax, guys!!

    I think by 7 they know how to read the letter "L" and distinguish the red colour. What was shocking?

    What makes you, your friend, me or anyone else a more rightful user of a D1 Mark 20 or an L lens?

    Well, my frd and me never seen one before, that why we are shocked at that instance. However, after this, if we see again, we will not react like the same way as last Saturday.

    Aiyah, just say so lah! Next time you see such a thing just approach the kid: "come, let unker see see and test test your very expensive toy.. then teach you a skill or two so you know how and when to take xmm photos, okie?"...

    You get used to it and become immune to it. Until you get your own kids.. I sometimes pass my working Nikon to my son (8 year old). Not to heavy he says, he prefers the larger LCD.... would you say no? Maybe now, but when they are yours....

    Hi Marios,

    I have a 11 year old kid, and I'll never pass him my expensive equipment especially when he's out on his own. Why? For a very simple reason - his life and safety - I'd treasure that more than any expensive equipment I own... Given his age and size, I don't think he can fend off any attackers who might eye on the equipment. It is the very same reason why old folks who were brandishing their jewelries were getting mugged in the lifts. Why put yourself into harm's way, just so you can show off your bling blings? I'd call that stupidity. Till this day, I have noticed parents who couldn't wait to buy their younglings iPhones, expensive cameras, etc etc... I'd know coz my kid would let me know as his classmates will officially announce their newly attained toys in class... I could very well do the same (it's not that I cannot afford them), but I believe in my sound reasoning. And he understands when I explained to him what I've just mentioned above. Why couldn't we wait until he's much older, what's the rush anyway?

    It's okay to let him use the equipment when we're around and make sure we're in the right places... This maybe Singapore, where crime rate isn't as high as some cities or nations, BUT... there will always be those who are desperate (to pay off their debts, out of work, professional snatch thieves...) and who wouldn't think twice about taking out a machete to slash whoever's fingers just to get what they want... And REALLY... we want to afford them that chance, and put our loved ones on the line?..... May the wiser minds prevail...

    Btw, no offense intended. Just sharing my views. Glad you're proud of your kid, he certainly knows his stuff. :-)
