I have a great solution. I'm broke. I can't afford much new gear! The last lens I bought was a 17-40L and it took me 8 months of saving to get it. I know not everyone is blesses with this condition that makes it so easy to resist buying new gear. But there is help out there.
No matter how much disposable income I have or how inexpensive the item I want, I don't allow myself to buy it if I haven't truly mastered the last piece of equipment I bought. With the case of my last lens, (the 17-40L) I took it to Oahu and spent a couple of days shooting sunsets on the north shore. I did well, but far from perfection. So I can't justify spending another $2K on a 70-200 F2.8L II IS (next on my wish list) until I know I'm getting the best shots possible out of my 17-40
I can do better than this. When I do, I'll move on to my next purchase.Hawaii - Feburary 2013 (40 of 60).jpg
