    I can't stop buying gear! Over the weekend I dropped $900 on a 16-35 f/2.8L glass....(I figured my 17-40 f/4 was too slow), another $120 on a camera bag, $220 for a battery grip and $300 for a 50mm f1.8 glass!! :run:

    This is in addition to the over $3000 I spent last week!!

    Oh....and another $1500 for a new computer to handle all the great shots I'll soon be shooting. :x:

    I still need to pick up another strobe or two, soft boxes, stand adaptors, cable release, wireless flash adaptor, new tripod, etc. etc. etc........and the list just keeps getting longer!


    Help!!!!
