haHA! What a show off.

It's only money. Show us a nice pic you took instead.

Dario.

I agree.
If you (the OP) are happy waltzing in here all big-man-about-town, go on: Show us the goods. Let's see your portfolio then.

Judging soley on the OP's initial post, should we assume he isn't married?  Shoot, with me, I shoot professionally, can write off all purchases on taxes, and can get the money for the camera in about a months time if needed, and I STILL have to explain to my wife/CEO that I need a new camera, even though my 5d2 is only 4 months old haha.  That being said, when I liquidate my 5d2, I could make up the difference easily in 1 month and plan on getting mine asap as soon as retailers start getting steady shipments and I wont be without a second body too long.

Well said, good sir!  He must not be married ;)  I too write everything off, and if I had purchased the markII (which I am glad I waited to do) my husband would probably be saying no way, which would be totally reasonable.  We all have to compromise for the sake of our significant others.  That being said, yeah for mastercard! ;D

Why thank you.   ;)

Love when people post pics of caches of money that were found by our troops in Iraq. Ya and a yellow Ferrari? Why would you do that to such a beautiful machine? So cheesy.  Don’t worry it’s a Ferrari, you will get attention.  Stick with black, red or white.

Hahaha... why can't people just laugh and have fun with the OP?  Some people have lots of money, some have little, some are in between.  Who cares?!  Just laugh and roll with it... I'm sure that's what the OP meant to start.  If not, that's funny too!!

Thanks for saying what I suspect most of us were thinking.

yep... hemp plants in the OP photo.  The funny thing is that in about 10 years of inflation, the photo will be even less impressive. 

What an affronting goof... really...show what really matters... your car  HAHAHAH!



What is it about owning an expensive vehicle that makes people forget how to park?  ;D

*grin* last night my wife stated that she wants two, because if it has decent AF she won't need to buy a 1DX.  As bastard CFO from hell, I had to point out that maybe she should start with one... once the street price has started to drop below RRP.  As long as I provide the interface between her and her accountant, she needs to listen. *grin*

Bank statements show debt too,

but as they say if you owe the bank a million $ you have a problem but if you owe a bank a trillion $ they have the problem

I have the money for 2.

I have waited a very long time for this camera and it is going to be used for both Photography and Video.
The 70-200L IS II is also on the list.

Ferrari is red, people who have bought other colours have missed the point.  That said, I wouldn't say no to a free yelllow one; I'd just have to shell out for a respray!

P.S. I had to zoom in to 100% to see how much money the OP actually had; why do US bank notes all look the same? Surely a country as rich as the USA can afford colour printing? The US dollar looks like a third world currency!  :)

How much do you think I can get for my car so I can maybe get a 5DIII?
