I put the coins in my pocket at the end of each day into a bottle, and when they've accumulated, I use that to finance a photography purchase.

We retired the beginning of last year, but have always fed our 401ks to the maximum, we live in a small house and our newest car is over 10 years old. I'm also a died in the wool doit-your-selfer so I do almost all our repairs and maintenance, but

I'm sure hoping that the megapixel wars are over so I can stick with the cameras I have. If so, there are only two lenses left on my wish list. The 135f2 may be this years Christmas gift. The other is the 500f4 so

I would suggest renting the next thing you are lusting for. I have tried that for several lenses, and after playing for a week my CUS settles down, and I send them back without regret. It doesn't always work though, with the 500 f4 I bought right after renting.


It also costs about $500 to rent that sucker for a week and they sell used for only $1000 less than new and the MkII will be $4000 more. Egad. So if I decide for that one my only excuse will have to be

I'm waiting for prices to come down a bit so i can part-ex the wife for a 70-200mm mk2. That way i get a nice new lens and remove the primary obstacle to buying more nice new lenses....

Some people seem to have real distorted views on the best way to finance acquisition of gears.

Let me set you straight here: marry a well off and/or a hard working woman. Then, stimulate-motivate her to buy you stuff with her money.

I'm planing on unloading the Hubble on Buy & Sell...then using the profit to purchase the Canon 500 f/4L II, 85 f/1.2L, 35 f/1.4L II (soon), 400 f/2.8L II, 2 EOS 1DXs...

...I'll pay for the shipping to set up Hubble in current location

In my case I only have a few targets: (since I'm going all prime)

1-Canon next 5D version with whatever they put in and fair AF improvements (however they'll call it)
2-Canon 200 2.8L
3-Canon 24L
4-Sony NEX 7 plus couple of small standard primes. (I tend to leave the DSLR gear home lately due its weight)

Not asking the moon, just a fair setup yet I do not seem to make it
