Re: A physical big store

A little peice of mind is worth a lot. For someone who is confused and doesn't know what to do - better to buy cheap and maybe get a dud? ...or get a card for a little extra money that you know isn't a "fake", comes with a warranty, and can be returned.

Equipment: 1 Finger, an eye, a camera body and 50mm (equivalent) lens, half a brain, and a lot of money leftover to spend on using that equipment
