i like second tier equipment. i go for yesteryear 'best' models, where everyone dump them and buy latest stuff. i embraced the old models like 28-70 or 17-35 to newer models like 24-70 or 16-35 as the earlier are 'workhorses' for photographers years ago. and thereare at least 40% cheaper than the current ones.

all my cameras are 2nd hand except my woca. i only bought 1 lens, my first 1st hand.

i bought a tripod and head 1st hand

1 bought the wireless transmitter 1st hand

and my camera bags

that's it, the rest its all second hand, i save quite a bit.

All my Leica lenses are bought 2nd hand...for almost only half the price of a new one. My SF-20 flash unit also 2nd hand...save me quite alot of money! :)
Only my Leica M6 and the motordrive is bought brand new.

Sigh... If I earn $3K/mth, L lens, no prob.

But den I have to hold back and sacrifice a few things for a single lens. Buying a new lens is kinda like going overseas trip for me.
