I do.. that's why they're scratched up.. Maybe it's gear OCD but I like them to stay "new-like" for as long as I can.. however, once it's been scratched.... it's like a green light to "not care"..
Heh, it's the same when you buy a new car (or different one). You pray not to get any dings or scratches, but once it happens then the worrying is over and you don't care as much.
true.. but once you have those scratches fixed.. you get a little cautious again
Speaking as someone whose car got hit twice in less than six months and the cost of repairs added up to at least as much as what the car was new, I most definitely agree.
Having recently bought both the 100 macro L and the 70-200/2.8 IS II, I've come to find the "matte finish" hoods to be a little nicer than what was previously offered. Just hope I can take good care of them!
