    i've been surfing for 4 years, i never bought anything that was influenced by these forums.

    the problem lies with your will, not with the forums.

    just think very carefully why you want the lenses, the equipment..

    i really want to play with a 40mm. but i think, and i think, and i think, it's not something i really need. so i will only buy it when i have a lot of extra money.

    same goes for lenses like 16-50 f/2.8, etc.

    spend more time shooting, looking at nice photos here, the forums is about photography, and equipment is but one faucet of photography. i would rather spend the time and energy thinking about what i could do with my current gear. what is lacking, what i need to get, rather than what i want to play with.

    True. The limiteds are nice to have, but not essential.

    My problem lies with Fengwei selling quality manual lenses for cheap!
    Brand loyalty? Pffttt...| Got Flickr?
    I shoot JPEG (got a problem with that?)

    Wise suggestion

    But you know, photography isn't just about photos. It's also about the toys we play and own. Better gear doesn't guarantee better photos, but definitely make me feel better when I hold them To me, photography is about photos (50%) + gear (50%), probably should weight gear a bit more in my case

    of course, that's why we have pentax section, right?

    but there has to be a balance.

    Man's toys if you don't buy photographic gears then you will find something else to indulge in Think of it, it is much cheaper than cars, hifi, hometheater, golf, etc .. .. so stay with photography it is still cheaper.

    Just think of the lady's toys are a lot worst .. look at the branded bag or jewelery, suddenly the limited lens don't look so bad anymore ...

    I feel that to really enjoy this hobby, you need to set aside a huge amount of $$$ as a start to buy a good body a range of lens to fulfill focal range from 12mm-200mm be it prime or zooms.

    Then when you start utilising your gear you will know what kinda photography you like and that's the time you dump those lens you seldom use and purchase more of those which suit your photography.

    My rule is to spend $4K-$5K and once I reach that amount, I will sell my gears which I seldom use to fund something else to try.
