saw a used D3 w/ about 12k shutter counts for $3,900. so tempting... oh, so tempting.
I wish I had no self control sometimes. I'd be balls deep in new camera gear.
I wish i had money so i could throw my self control out the window from time to time. Most i can afford to splurge, is on the occasional video game... so i'm stuck with kit glass, and makeshift lighting setups.
I just got done paying off ALL debt. I'm not jumping on that ship again, specially w/ this economy.
a diffuser for your sb-800...did you not get one when you bought it?
ya, lost it... wasn't about to use the gary phong globe in bright daylight.
I have $400 more to go and I'm clear.
Christmas is right around the corner though.
everyone is getting cheap gifts... except my wife and my son. I have equipment to buy.
There is a local d300 on CL here with less than 100 clicks for 3900
comes with a 35 f/2 as well.
that's a total rip.. only 2x the price of a new one.
he has to have meant d3
yea i meant d3, sry
damnit today i ended up with a nice ringflash (impulse buy) no diffuser for me
woke up this morning to a classified on a local forum...guy is switching to Canon...3 D300's for 1450 each
I got 750ish in savings right now for my lens....lens first, body later.
I figure I can get the lens new (since hardly anyone sells it used ) and pick up a used 300 down the road.
oh I think you know faggot
i'm kinda scared to spend any coin with the economy being what it is right now..
Oh, THAT lens.
I need to borrow one for Nov 9, and then again for Nov 28
I'd like to borrow one for this Sunday, but think the time is short to get in touch with the people I know that have one I could borrow
The only thing I'm worried about is my investments. They're losing money, but so is everyone elses, so I don't feel that bad
Rent one. Doesn't The Camera Exchange rent lenses?
don't think they do...there is a place in town that does though...but why spend money I don't have to. I know of 2 or 3 people that have this lens that have said I can borrow it anytime. It's an issue of hooking up with them before I need it. One of them will be present as an instructor on Nov 9, and I know I can use anything in his gear bag. The other is a little harder to nail down, but I could still do it. And either way if I make arrangements early enough to borrow it for the 2nd date I want it then it won't matter.
775 saved towards purchase right now...but Christmas is coming and I'm hoping I might get it (yeah right )....but some of that saved money might have to go to gifts for wife, kiddo, and other family. I just bought my wife a laptop for her birthday in Sept, so I shouldn't have to get her anything huge for Christmas/Anniversary.
I've been looking to use these two products simultaneously, their samples look pretty damn good. If you get them, post a review.
I'm probably buying the medium flip up in the next week. buddy uses it and loves it.
my wife "expects" things. spoiled fucking brat.
