How much have you $pent in gear in the last 1 year's time? I'm new to photography so I'd like to get an idea of how much I'll be spending now so I can break it to the wife :lol:

$2,200 Is my total. I don't have a year to reference (just a measly 30 days)

More than I should have but less than I might have! ;)

Your figure just about covers one lens I got and I've about $500 more on bits! Unfortunately (for me!) I also got my G11 within the last year (but no other cameras!) - but at least it was s/h! But that's another $500! :rolleyes:

Edit: I've no probs with it being deleted


If it moves, snap it - and if it doesn't move, snap it twice just in case it does move!

If it counts, in 2007-2008 when I was into photography, I spent well over $6000. That included a 30D (which were hot at the time), the 17-55 IS, 10-22, sigma 30mm, canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS, and the 50L. Plus a 6MDH bag, cards, etc. It gets expensive, real fast, especially when theres ALWAYS another lens that you want. ALWAYS.

I've spent about $1605 since March 2010 when I had to buy my first SDHC card for a Pentax I was borrowing. That number is closer to $1700 if you add in my new external hard drive and iMovie '11. I also don't have a ton to spend, although I am hoping to buy a flash and a tripod soon, then maybe a nifty-fifty further on down the road.

Quite a lot. But then I did buy a 1D Mk III, a Sigma 120-300/2.8, and some micro 4/3 kit.

For one year time frame - 5D with grip, 70-200 F4, Tamron 28-75 2.8, YN-468 - Something close to 2.2K as well.
I sold my 28-90, some old video and PC junk and some free tickets for 800.
So, it is 1.4K balance.

define spend?

out of pocket?: $0.00
spend after selling something to fund the purchase?: $10k probably?

both #s are true for every year for the last 3 or so?

Likewise. I have been trying to buy and sell in equal numbers.....refining my gear list to my needs. Thats the advantage of buying top-line stuff....you don't have to take a beating on the re-sale.
