    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. :wtc:

    woke up this morning to a classified on a local forum...guy is switching to Canon:o...3 D300's for 1450 each:mad:

    I got 750ish in savings right now for my lens....lens first, body later:o.

    I figure I can get the lens new (since hardly anyone sells it used:o ) and pick up a used 300 down the road:o.

    I need to borrow one for Nov 9, and then again for Nov 28

    :o

    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:o

    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 :(

    don't think they do...there is a place in town that does though...but why spend money I don't have to:o. 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:o. 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:big grin:.

    775 saved towards purchase right now:o...but Christmas is coming and I'm hoping I might get it:x: (yeah right:o )....but some of that saved money might have to go to gifts for wife, kiddo, and other family:o. 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:o.
