God damn, $1600 for a lens. There's so much other things I could have bought... a new laptop, a Omega, invested it. Here I am taking pictures instead. And it's a god damn niche lens, not like the 17-55 or anything. Wow, just amazes me what it's come to. Start of this year I was using a P & S and now this.... Anyone else ever wonder... why do I spend so much on it? I mean for me I'll probably never make money off of this, just a fucking expensive hobby.
