Well, since digital is progressing at a fairly rapid clip, after winning the lottery it does not matter that a $44K camera becomes 'obsolete' in a few years, since even the absurdly miniscule amount of passbook savings interest (0.5%) will more than cover that expense every few years.

Some cameras hold their value better than others. Leica and Hasselblad being two that do much, much better than Nikon and Canon.

I would just open up my own digital store (cameras, computers, home theater) and use what I want whenever I want. Hopefully the store would sustain itself but if not it would just be for fun anyways. :)

And i would retire at the ripe old age of 29. :cool:

This is probably what most photographers on this forum would do....what else would you do with your money? Would you quit working? Lets hear it!

... and all the fun researching to make an intelligent decision & personal 'fit' would be gone, too.

Pick up a Ferrari Enzo, drive to Home Depot and buy a 20lb sledge. Drive over to a friends house who's a ferrari nut and proceed to beat the snot out of it with the sledge. :)

It takes roughly $50,000 to buy all the L zooms and primes up to 300 (or 400mm in the case of a particular zoom).

Another $500,000 gets you all super telephoto lenses.

And finally, another $120,000 gets you the 1200mmL.

After $220,000 on glass what's a body or 5?


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!
