    [i think i have a problem...im addicted to buying gear

    So in Oct. 08 i started out with a D90 kit, before that was a Canon G9. Well I sold the G9, and Bought a D300 w/ 18-200. I then sold the D90 kit. Since then i've been blowing money on lenses.

    So, from a Canon G9 to the following in less than 4 months.


    D300
    4 Batteries
    2x 4GB Sandisk Extreme 3 CF Cards
    1x 8GB Sandisk Extreme 3 CF Card
    Nikon 18-200
    Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye
    Nikon 17-55 f/2.8
    Nikon 70-200 f/2.8
    Nikon 35mm f/2
    Nikon 50mm f/1.8
    Gorilla Pod
    Lowepro Slingshot
    Nikon GP-1
    Nikon SB-800
    12x AA Eneloops for SB
    Eneloop Charger
    :eek4:

    Will this ever end :rofl:, im already eyeing a Dakine Sequence & MB-D10, Sigma 10-20, & Nikon 85 f/1.4

    I vowed not to buy any gear in Jan/Feb. That didn't last very long. I've bought the following (in addition to what I already have) in the last month:

    BG-E2N grip + extra battery for my 40D
    5D body + grip
    Canon 100mm macro

    So yes, I admit I have a problem.

    Me, im a EU Citizen, so im heading back over for a year or two. I'll be all over. No applications for me until i get there and apply to Uni as a local ;)

    Come to Poland if im in Europe, i have a place 4 hours from Prague. We can hit up Krakow & Auschwitz for some Photos.

    I'll be in Germany by June 1st, and In July im going to Italy. Going diving in Elba for 2 weeks. Then probably gonna bum around for another week or so before going back to Germany. Also, im staying in Cologne while in Germany, so if u feel like coming up north a bit. End of July i'll probably go to Poland for a bit, and hit up Prague for a weekend.

    You gonna be in Munich for Oktoberfest?

    I'm not sure what dates are which cities. I'll get in touch with you after I get accepted and we'll see if we can work something out :h5:

    I have a friend in Munich so if I'm there he can definitely show us around.
