Well I would like to invest more money into photography, but I am still on the verge of what I want to do. Do I want to stay nikon? or switch over to the dark side. I have all Nikon gear now and don't want to upgrade just yet because of this lack of decision(and I am in a different country). My conclusion: -I am in Brasil -Brasil has very high tariff taxes -They have a website just like e-bay on which I can sell all my gear. -The dollar has dropped significantly (which means when I convert back I will get more "dollars" then I ever would have in history) -My stuff is worth more "used", here. Then it is "new" in the U.S -SELL all gear -??????? -Profit (literally) I would also sell my mac book which I can get about 2 grand for. Thoughts?
