One my favorite quotes is by Aaron Siskind.

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What is captured is captured forever, it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten every detail."

I have had it stenciled above my reception desk in the studio, it brings a smile to the face of every customer that takes the time to read it.

Quote: If you work for someone like AP or AFP, covering everything from wars to politician shaking hands, you are looking for reliability and good handling primarily. An ultra-sharp lens is not the first priority by any means. The question is, will desert sand jam it up? Water get in?

The guys I know who work for AP and AFP don't own any of their own equipment (unless they're a freelancer). The agency buy a pool of equipment and the photographer takes what they think will be appropriate for the job. I believe AFP use Nikon at the moment.

I don't tend to buy new equipment unless either the stuff I have is on its last legs, or there's a noticeable difference in quality due to the equipment (not user error) between myself and my peers. Which reminds me, would anyone like to buy a well used Nikon D700? Only one, not so careful owner.
