A few months back, I read a blog post online (don't remember where), where a pro photographer was answering the question "Which camera should I buy". And, he immediately told the person to get the Nikon D4 I think it was.

He then went on to explain the costs of starting at the "lower" end and "upgrading as you go" which is how most people do it, versus simply starting at the top and saving all the time, headache, and hassle of starting at the bottom. Based on his analysis of Retail vs depreciation etc, you actually come out ahead simply buying the best upfront.

I read once that a Rolls Royce, in the long run, is the cheapest car to buy.
