    It only becomes too large when it requires moving to a larger house or renovation to the existing one, to accomodate the additional kit...

    I don't see that as a problem. It's somewhat like having kids. As your family grows, you need a bigger place.

    The difference between cameras and kid is....

    When you find a better camera, you sell or trade the one you got to get the new one.

    A house is only somewhere to store stuff while you go out to buy more stuff...

    Well pleased. Not a mark on it - Both lenses unmarked and fungus free. I don't think it's seen much action. All seems to be functioning as it should. Only thing I need to do is change the foams in the back door and mirror bumper which are sticky, which shouldn't be too much of a problem.

    And it came with a vivitar 283 flash as well!

    You need to follow up now with the purchase of an 80mm f1.9 lens if you like depth of field as thin as a gnat's pubes. (Don't know what that means: just read it on a forum somewhere. )
