    There I was walking in Vivo when I went into Challenger to get an external hard disk and caught the BBB virus. Next thing I remember I 'm standing outside the shop clutching a D5000 and going "my precious". :P

    Me becoming a fanboy actually happened before that, when one of my friends lent me her D90 to play with at an office function. I still curse her every time for the fortune I've spent.

    It actually went like this...

    Episode 1: The phantom menace (D5000 kit)
    Episode 2: Long road home (18-200 for more reach. Sold 18-55)
    Episode 3: Going the distance (70-300 for even more reach)
    Episode 4: To boldly go where few men have gone before (150-500 for the birds)
    Episode 5: Attack of the clones (Sold 18-200 and got 35 f1.8 and 50 f1.8)
    Episode 6: The empire strikes back (D7000... sold D5000)
    Episode 7: A light in the darkness (80-200 f2.8. bye bye 70-300)

    To anybody reading this... do NOT do what i did.

    OMG? How long did that took you? I got a very similar case like you.

    Episode 1: A New Hope (D90 kit)
    Episode 2: Honey, I shrunk the kids (Tamron 90mm AF Macro)
    Episode 3: Little Miss Sunshine (35mm F/1.8)
    Episode 4: The Longest Yard (70-300mm VR)
    Episode 5: The Standard (17-50mm F/2.8 and hibernate my 18-105mm (sold much later))
    Episode 6: Eyes Wide Shut (11-16mm F/2.8 when gotten poisoned by UWA)
    Episode 7: A Very Long Engagement (150-500mm for birding)
    Episode 8: The Replacements (50mm F/1.8, hibernate my 35mm F/1.8)
    Episode 9: The Replacement Killers (105mm Micro VR, sold Tammy 90mm & 35mm F/1.8)
    Episode 10: Up (D300s, D90 in hibernation waiting for sales)
    Coming Soon: <insert brand here> 70-200mm F/2.8

    Lol, I think mine looked much more scary... I hadn't even list the flashes...

    Mine's just a one year project by now. Give it time.
    But yes, was VERY tempted to just get the nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 instead of the 80-200mm. Figured I'll leave it for the next epidemic of BBB virus.

    I hope TS won't get scared after reading these posts....cos it will be way above his 3k budget (but as mentioned, it's a long "project" for many but not for some which buy it like collectibles).
