I have always been one that longs for things I can not afford, and decide to be content with what I have.
And it works.
I am quite content with all that I have.
At least I was, until….
Until this past week, when I went to visit with some family and a family member pulled out his Nikon D40x.
His Nikon D40x did not have cream colored paint schmears on its camera body.
His Nikon D40x did not have scratches on the viewing screen.
His Nikon D40x did not have flour and cake batter crusted in the grips on his 18-135 kit lens that has been threatening to completely stop working altogether the next time it is taken into the kitchen.
His Nikon D40x did have this 18-200mm, auto-focus-vibration-reduction lens attached to it along with some fabulous digital flash.
It was a glorious sight to behold.
Then he allowed me to take pictures with it.
Instantly I became rather discontented with my 18-135mm auto focus BROKEN lens, and suddenly I can not remember the 10th commandment.
