Is it just me or are more and more kids using high end gear? Just saturday at marina bay sands i saw this kid like not more than 15 using something with a BG and red ring lens. (on the side-note i realised almost a quarter of the people there using rebel with kit lens. Also saw this guy blasting his pop-up at cbd night landscape at the pavilion, i see almost want to laugh;p)

have you been to forum shopping centre at tanglin?

those little baby garments that are branded cost $500 a piece. 3 pieces gets you an L lens.

are you going to be jealous of the baby wearing it?

you should never begrudge people for being rich, although you can judge them if they do not make use of what they have. in my opinion.

Nah, i got nothing against rich people, its just when i see then i'll be like 'WOW, that kid has that'

And actually 2 baby garments can get you 'L', 17-40 sub 1k on b&s;p

I don't think there is anything worth to talk about,
maybe they have a rich father, but I don't, so be it.

and also, I will not look down any of them,
today they maybe just a newbie,
maybe they can shoot better than me in a few years later,
so who will have the last laugh will never know...

Agreed :thumbsup:

Even if they never ever end up taking good photos, so be it. They worked hard to earn the money. Who are we to tell them how to spend it.
