No offence, but by the way you are buying instead of shooting, or thinking of buying/selling things all the time, guess there won't be any difference between getting a 10D or a fuji disposable as a backup body.

mmm..if me ..neither..

cos i dun have use for either one...since i dun have lenses nor body to complement the use...:p

if u have need for a second body and no need for longer lenses...den get body loh

if not, getting longer lenses would be better as it adds to ur range of lenses available for use.....

:dent:

I think getting a 10d on top of ur very newly acquired d60 is quite wasted leh. Think the 70-200 IS is a very good lens if u havent any lens falling in that focal range. :thumbsup:

aiyah, sometimes u have extra $$...u tends to spend more...

but if i dun use this $$$ to get something good & worthwhile... i might dump my $$$ into Betting 4D again. i regretted dumping more than $1,500 per month for 4D bettings. (although i won some too) But eventually, all the winning also spent...

All i can gather about u is the stylo milo guy with a ciggy sticking out of his mouth, with a g3 on a monopod, and also mass acqusition of 2nd hand hp. :D

hmm....now i understand....may be put in fixed deposit?

last time when i have extra $$...my "friends" will all come and borrow for me then run away ;(

i rather spend all of them on lenses so that i dun have extra to lend them ;( ;(

get the 70~200mm zoom...after a while sell it and get the 10D!! then sell the 10D to get the money back!!

hahaa...:rbounce:

seriously if i really have a 3000$ to spare, i'll go for a timeless classic...something that is still functional and would not depreciate after a while, could be a OM3Ti or a Leica M4.

you could happily get a 10D now...everybody knows, next yr it's going to be 9D...follow by a series of 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1D, and so one, by then a 3K for the 10D might become a mere 0.3K.

but then, if u are so rich...what care??!?
