regret going to sell 50 f1.4?

i haven regret any of my sales yet, cos i haven sell much of anything...
Well, yes, I think I'm gonna regret letting it go.

But then again, it was one of those backside-itchy, BBB-virus impulse purchases. I didn't need it, but thought it'd be soooooo cool to own one. In fact, I was just looking for an f/1.8, but when I spotted an f/1.4, I thought wah lau, mai tu liao. And now, it sits in my dry cab most of the time, not doing anything...

Maybe it's more that I regret buying it in the first place (in a good way, if you know what I mean...)

:p

Regretted selling my Professional Canon D2000 digital camera!

Bought for almost $20K, sold only $3000 to second hand dealer. Should have kept it as an antique instead!

My Tamron 180mm f3.5 SP Di Macro. Great lens...superb clarity and sharpness but sadly underutilized so it had to go.

70-200mm f2.8L non IS....bought it, sold it, got a Sigma 70-200mm instead but kept regretting the move...so finally switched back to the Canon again. :bsmilie:

I think there are more regrets to buying than selling.

My regret? Buying my 300D. :bsmilie: Cos it led me down a slippery slide down the world of photography.

But its not my biggest regret since it had taught me the following lessons:
- Lessons in life
- The ugliness of people (how low ppl would stoop to get what they want)
- Opening the Real Eye (not only to view things in an artistic photography sense, but also to see things as what they are)
- Seeing with the Heart (It made me more observant and sensitive of the surroundings)
