When I was a student, I skip lunch, walked, worked part time, for about 1 year plus, just to get a film SLR and a standard 50mm lens, that was 1970s...

my mum saved for me !

a DSLR kit is just the beginning of your purchase..after that usually will follow up with a flash,faster card,battery grip,fast lenses,camera bag,tripod,bounce card etc...

Never ending !

kit_fisto : your time will come when you are able to afford it lar, don't worry. A lot of people here can well afford a D2X, it's no big deal, i am sure a large percentage has > 20K spare cash. But then is it cost effective and the sane thing to do? Nope.

The real pleasure comes when you saved the $ yourself and buy your own stuff, you'll treasure it more.

For me? I'm happy with a Coolpix 4600 :)

I work during 3 school holidays, sec 2 to sec 4, to buy my first SLR, a yashica FX-3 with 50mm lens. I'm still using the camera occasionally.
