One more reason to use old gear. While much of it -- in good shape -- is going up in prices, a lot is not. And if you are not in a rush and a smart shopper, you can find some great deals. I just nabbed a Vivitar (Kiron) 28mm f2.5 with a 67mm filter thread in great shape for $10.

Then they complain about the lousy pictures they get -- and blame the camera maker.
