When you are price shopping for a camera the prices seem to go up the longer you shop.....just like when you are shopping for air fair !

And down right after you buy...or worse yet, new model with more features for less money. Murphy's Law.

I am looking at lenses at Adorama and find the one I want has several different prices at different places on the list. Same lens at different places. Both new and refurbished.

Learned that I cannot afford the latest and greatest photo equipment. Sometimes it's better to stay with the tried and true any way. Much of what I have is the best of one or two versions past. And I feel so fortunate to Have what I have.

Careful....sometimes, Bargain prices are because the lens is gray market, used, dated, without accessories, etc. Which is why I like dealing with B&H....

He who hesitates is lost. If you want it, look around for a decent price, and buy it. Photo equip prices vary very little. I'd rather have a camera for two weeks than spend two weeks trying to save a few dollars - as the price rises.
