I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean, but it sure sounds a bit underhanded, if you ask me.

i don't mean it to go off as smart-aleck's comment. i'm just saying that people buy dslrs for image quality and not for financial reasons. most of the prosumer from lenses from all brand start at $500 and easily go up past $1000. in comparison, $90 for a protective filter seems cheap.

Prosumer != hobbyist. I keep my serious stuff to film, which I rarely shoot anymore because I no longer have cheap darkroom access. If I had the money, I would have the best stuff available, but I am pleased with my XS and setup of primes (35mm f/2, 50mm f/1.8, 85mm f/1.8). I would, however, love a 200mm/f2.8L someday -- but I have a feeling I would start looking at a higher-end body should that day arise.

hmm. you make a good point. i see protection as very useful for more expensive lenses but with the kits or cheaper lenses, i wouldn't put a filter on them either.

and don't be fooled by better camera = better photos. i often shoot my 200 f/2 with a rebel xti.

Oh, I absolutely agree. While I have some just-out-of-college friends that are riding on loan money buying 5Ds and D7000s left and right and in the meantime chiding me about having a cheapie Rebel, it doesn't bother me. I'm very satisfied with my outfit (although, feel free to donate a darkroom), sans that 200 f/2.8 (one day...), and since I have aforementioned other financial involvements (business ownership, mortgage, etc), it'll have to do for now.
