I haven't looked at the catalogs for quite a while or visited cameras stores
except to scrounge through their junk bins for things like series adaptors
and filters. It seems that every time I look at a showcase with new cameras,
I end up with sleepless nights, an angry wife, a happy son (he knows he is
about to get an addition to his budding camera collection) and for me
another trip to the camera store for a toy. Guess it's time to go Xmas shopping.
