Thus far in my very brief foray into photography, I've bought & sold one body, and 3 lenses, purchased 4 other lenses, a bad, 2 memory cards, 2 straps, 2 lens hoods, a flash, eyecups, batteries, software, etc. etc. etc. So give or take, I'm in the $4000 ballpark...and I still have no tripod! Am I destined for a life of debt?
