With apologies to Will Rogers - Don't gamble; take all your savings and buy some good camera and hold it till it goes up, then sell it. If it don't go up, don't buy it.
Interesting ethos

I'm off on a major buying spree in a few days. However I'll only be buying cameras that I can repair. or restore.
