    ... I wonder if this is only due to the fact that I am down with some sort of flu/cold, but I really feel like I want to buy some new gear.

    I am not a gear addict, and haven't won in any lottery, and I do not really need anything new, but I really want it! A new lens, an new tripod, or even better, a new camera :mrgreen:

    Anyone else ever experienced similar emotional imbalances?
    ;)

    What can I do about it? Any way to prevent wasting money?

    There's medication for that.:lol:

    Actually Im having a similar feeling, but the difference is that I am about to come into a fair sum of money, and I have come up with a grocery list of gear that I want: Canon 40d, 24-70L, 70-200 2.8L, New tripod head flash, etc.. I know I dont need it all, but I want it! anther part of me says that for that amount, I cold pay a sizable amount of my tuition, or I could make some investments...but the other part of me says, L glass IS an investment.:lol:

    Well, my problem is, as far as Canon is concerned, I do use several L-toys and an overpriced 35mm-sensor camera already ;)

    So topping this would be really expensive ;)

    being a total manic depressive I'm always buying gear I don't need in an attempt to cheer me self up, one reason why when at the end of each month when I get paid I have to give most of it back to work :lol:

    But hey you should see my nice new Gitzo series 3 carbon legs :lmao:
