    One thing I learnt is, it's never enough. You think you get a D3S it will be enough to last for five years? Then if D4 come out in three years time how? Or maybe a D400 that can shoot the same kind of picture as your D3S, weighs half as much, costs half as much.

    Yes, I am contented with what I have now. I may not be contented tomorrow but if I am not contented today, then I should start looking at new equipments, before tomorrow.

    Life is too short to want something and not get it

    Just like many people want to be buried inside a golden coffin.

    But in the end they just have to be contented with a wooden one.

    That's because they have no say or they can't say and can't see and can't know.

    I would quote, work before hobby. Unfortunately I also don't believe that. but I find that it's easier to fund my hobbies after working a few years. Hmm... that's not true also. I just had different (read, cheaper) hobbies when younger. I guess some of us are really contented with whatever we have now

    It'll be more difficult to justify why I take sucky pictures so hmm, I think I am happier now.
    If I were richer, I prob would be shooting with a top end FF and trinity lenses or something like that but would I be happier than I am now?

    You will be contented until you brought your first DSLR.

    I felt crippled by my equipment recently. I had a nice strobist set up going with pocketwizards and everything and just when I was ready to shoot, Err99 on my 1D3. And I had to use a P&S because it was urgent. Pictures turned out like crap

    But otherwise quite satisfied

    Skip meal good , can detox and lose weight.

    But then, skip how many meals?

    Say, for a 5Dmk2 at $3200.
    $3200 / $2 chicken rice at lunch everyday = 1600 days = 4.4years.
    OK I pretend I upgrade my lunch to a $5 package (including drinks), $3200 / 5 = 640 = 1.75 years.

    Maybe the whole family skip meal will help to achieve this goal sooner.

    By then I probably want something else.

    But then, if it is so much effort to get a camera upgrade, is it worth it?
    It probably means the the person/family needs the money for other things more than the camera.
