I too always seemed to want to buy during a Jewish holiday! But let's face it, most of us can live a day or two without our latest toy! And we can always drive to the nearest camera store and pay local taxes (most local pro-level camera stores charge about the same as the folks in Manhattan). I also think it's wonderful that in this day of secular business uber alles merchandizing a company will honor its religious convictions (that are thousands of years old!)... the same goes for Chik-fil-A (sp?)... I always seemed to have a taste for chicken sandwiches on Sunday, when they are closed. I never got mad... it's time someone reminded the mindless consumer machine that there is a higher calling (isn't that taken by a hotdog company?)...  it makes the arrival of your gear that much more wonderful.

Holding a camera, any camera, reduces my blood pressure, calms my nerves, and gives me a sense of opportunity!
