This is absurd....are there really people like this? Not sure I believe it.

If you are implying that I buy cameras with no interest in photography, youthinks wrong.

After some thought I will concede that perhaps there are camera collectors or antique collectors that might buy a camera without intending to use it....but wouldn't they have to have SOME interest in photography that drew them to cameras in the first place?

Perhaps you or Henry could offer up a plausible example?
