You could use the rest to wield power - that's what mega money buys! Wink

Example (a small one): you could hire a top-notch private eye to dig the dirt on Rupert Murdoch and really scupper his BSkyB bid. I know it's pretty much scuppered anyway but off the top of my head that's the sort of thing you could do.

And/or you could set up your own charitable foundation and try and do a bit of good in the world. Smile

If I won that amount of money, first thing I'd do is employ someone to deal with all the begging letters! Wink

Give £100 mil away to charity. Another chunk for friends and family and keep the rest......thats just too much money for one person.

Agreed a substantial amount should go to charity but I would want to have personal oversight of that charity - to ensure the money reaches those it's supposed to be helping and a minimum on admin costs. So I would set up a new charity. Smile

Maybe similar to the "Distressed Gentlefolks Aid Association", except it would be for Distressed Photographers! Grin

There is a farm down the road from us (Sturts Farm) that was turned into a refuge/school for down syndrome adults and children...they grow lots of fruit and veg and sell it in the farm shop......its a fabulous place and its kept open by charitable donations........I'd give them a couple of mil...

With that kind of money I would have to dedicate at least £50m to many charities - of my choice.

Every Nikon Lens would be in my grubby hands, especially a 24mm Tilt and shift, a hell of a lot of UK based charities would be getting rather large donations and I would be handing in my notice rather swiftly!

Good luck to the person who won and I wish them anonymity to spend the money and set up their family for generations to come!

Single person? Or a syndicate?

Ok come on - aim higher! Grin

It would be a Hasselblad H4D-60 for me, with its complete set of lenses (11 in all, I think - each a four figure sum!)
