Impulsive? Maybe.....probably due to unhappy event in the office during the day.....But the tot has been lingering for years....this thread could be the catalyst....anyhow....48 hours cooling off period....it is a big decision nevertheless :p

oic, so there were events that lead up to the tot of leaving. u might 1 2 sound others out before the decision is made. i cant give any advice, as i've been in similiar quit/stay situation.

all that best, hope ur next job turns out differently.

Was at Comex just now....hand itchy to touch the D700...the feel was so solid....the shutter was so fast....so responsive.....the view finder was so huge and so bright....and can even see the nice bokeh with the 50mm f1.8....I just feel that it's unbelievable to get a bad shot with this cam....tio poison jialat jialat...damn it :sweatsm:

Come to my work thing, vending off my anger here really helps to cooling off thing a bit....I guess quiting without a job might be too risky in current job market, so have decided to hang on while seaching for new one :lovegrin: This probably the best of both world that I can think off as I can still affort a D700 by year end....bo pian....the dark side is too strong :sweatsm:
