Lenses as Investment
Posted 03 September 2009 - 02:39 PM
In the past, 35mm systems could last for decades (and continue to) but digital cameras are outdated in 5 or less.
So instead of spending $40k on a camera, would you buy a set of primes instead as the longer-term investment?

Stick to the topic Adrian!

While the lenses won't become as "outdated" as quickly as a camera it might attach to, it's still a bit limited in terms of application. You're working with just PL cameras, for example; whereas other investments are more universal.

I wouldn't buy a camera as it seems that every 5mins a new one comes out, plus the maintenance costs, plus the prices (ok, I know....red).
If I could afford it I would love to buy a set of prime lenses....something like a new set of Cooke's.
