Quite the kick in the bank account, lol

You don't even know the half of it I recently bought bunch of strobes - THAT's the kick to the bank account. Camera cost is on par at best (assuming you're buying a very nice camera and very beginner-level entry lights).

One thing that brings some comfort to the pain of gear expense is that, although the resale value of bodies tends to drop like a stone, good lenses and in particular first party manufacturer lenses, tend to keep their value pretty well. A good Canon L lens for example tends to keep 70-80% of its new price, pretty much regardless of its age.

Good point. And since the camera was bought used it's gonna lose too much

I disagree about the 70-200 4.0. It's a wondeful lens - sharp, and easy to carry around. That said, however, I prefer the IS version. 


Try it and see what you think!
