Looks like it's around $13.5k.

HA Carlos, I don't know how you convinced the wife to let you get that 300 VR. At least my purchases have been over a 4 year period :lol:

I'ld say around $2000. I usually trawl through EBay for second hand equipment or search rather optimistically here. It's hard being a student sometimes :lol:

I was surprised I'm roughly $7k lifetime, including cost of accessories, film, etc.

2001, spent about $500 on a film SLR kit and telephoto zoom. Practical.
Bought a couple compacts 2005 and 2007 for a total of $400. Sensible.
2010 bought a DLSR kit and 5 assorted lenses, accessories. $3000-ish. Getting out of control.
2011 upgraded DLSR kit and 1 expensive lens. Another $3000-ish. Somebody stop me.

I'm at $11000-something only looking at purchases of lenses and cameras. This is not taking into account other accessories such as filters, cleaning equipment, memory cards, flash, tripods etc.

But I have also sold equipment to afford new stuff along the way, so I have no real overview of the bottom line.

This has been over a period of four years.

Pretty much only spend money on gear and (cheap-ish) travels in all that time.

Don’t know about the money.
But a relationship or two for sure.

$3100 roughly. That is way more than I had anticipated, scary to add it all up. Although I have definitely made that money back through my photography work... so I think it's time for a new lens :D

£4,500

Scary when you add it up. That doesn't include memory cards or extra batteries, so add another £200 on that.
