I see. I do agree with you on this - I'm certainly missing out the unique travel experience of a personal jet too, solely because I cannot afford it. But I'm not really missing
it, you know...
There're many expensive and unique experiences that I have missed in my life. A $6590 lens is one of them, and let there be neither shame nor sorry by saying it, again: I cannot
afford it. Wonderful (but is it $6000 more wonderful?) it surely is (it better be), but I know I could make even better use of the money elsewhere...photographically.
