For what gear have you being saving lately?

We all have different priorities in life and sometimes, it takes a while to save for a camera or lens or any accessories.

So, what have you being saving for?

I have being saving for an used Leica M-P typ 240 in silver chrome. Still a long way to go lol

Not much I'm looking to buy but probably keeping an eye on a used summicron 35. I got my M6TTL last year with a zeiss planar so the combo will last me for a while.

1. Sony's 100-400 GM.
2. Wine Country Filter System + Breakthrough Photography's Graduated ND Filters

Just picked up the 2X converter today for use with the 70-200 GM, hoping to try my hand at wildlife with the 100-400.

We come here looking for deals. We use the savings on the things we buy to justify buying more things, thus filling our homes with tons of unnecessary consumer products. Such is the key to happiness.

Missed on the Nikon D7200 body sale during the holiday season, hoping for another price drop. That's on my list, or perhaps a Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary.

A new Sony Alpha APS-C A mount A77M3 with 450+ focal points, reliable tracking, etc etc. I don't think I'll be spending that money.

Damn, I know you have been wanting one of these 2 cameras for a while now. I have read somewhere that a dog will cost you like 25-50k in it's lifetime. Fortunately, a dog is a lot more fun than a camera.

We've been pretty lucky thus far with her... Got her as a puppy from Toronto animal services for $140, so at least the initial cost was small Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes. For a 60lb, 10 year old dog, she's been very healthy so far. But yeah, this one surgery cost almost 5k...
