    he pass on the costs to you.

    and it flows down through the meat supplier, mushroom seller, lettuce seller, salt supplier...

    how come people can apply the cascading effect when they complain about gst (which is actually invalid, since registered companies are exempt from gst), but when companies take measures that indirectly increase their costs (and thus prices), this logic is not applied?

    I know someone here who owns 60 lenses and counting, and that's only in the 50mm range! 80 lenses not hard to collect actually.

    If someone wants to have 2 or 3 (or even 4 or 5) cameras with different focal-length primes at the ready, fair enough... but 24??? Just seems silly.

    but who are we to judge...? Look at Jay Leno's car collection...
    He has a bunch of lemmings working for him also.

    And the 24 D3 is probably used to set up tethered shooting or interval shooting.

    This simply reflects American's mindset. Just like their modern war fare, firing thousands of bullets in hope of hitting one, compared to the old UK marksman folk training so hard just to get that perfect shot. None are wrong, but which way would you choose

    3 or 4 different cars, each for a different purpose, yes, I have seen. Like a SUV for going to construction site, a Ferrari to drive to the 6* hotel, a MB to go to work and meet clients.

    3bodies, each for mounting different lens and one spare. But 24 is just excessive. Just wonder if those gear bought with his own money or if it's his boss' money or .......
