i was at bras basah complex recently. walked into basheer's. while inside, i saw a 40-50's y.o. man. on his shoulder was a strap with the name 'Nikon D2X' on it, straping a Nikon camera. besides the camera, he carried a big domke bag which looked light in weight, imo. he was browsing books. what do you think? is he camera and bag proud or a show-off? or what?

if you are want to tell me it is his camera/bag or his $$, then pls do not post. thank you. i have heard this argument many times before. i am looking for other views.

what's wrong with carrying a domke bag and a D2x?

many pp are wearing watches/jewelleries/handbags that cost more than those..

Most vehicles we see on the road also cost more than that too..

No doubt that D2x is a top-notch camera. Aren't there better things to do in photography then be bothered by what equipment others use??? :dunno: :dunno:

some of you must be joking. i am jealous because of about $10K(my best estimate of the total value of camera and bag less the lens(which i have no interest in finding out).

If you have no interest, then why bother asking pointless questions? :dunno:
