After a year or so using my girlfriends brothers Sony A200 DSLR and hoping he had forgotten about it (Hey I can hope ) he has finally gotten round to asking for some money for it. He has asked for £100! His Dad has given him a Nikon one and it must have sparked his memory that he gave me the A200.
Now I know that it's not bad at all and easily worth it, but my dilemma comes down to two points -
1) The Selfish Point - For some reason I am slightly reluctant to spend £100 on a camera when he hasn't needed it for well over a year. And the fact that he now has a lovely Nikon.
2) Part of me thinks that I would rather put that £100 into a pot and get myself a much better one like the Nikon D3200/D3100/D5100 or Canon 550D/1100D. I know that these work out at £400-£500 with a basic lens but I do want to take better pictures.
So far I have taken some good pictures with the A200 and know that with a new lens I could improve. Also, I am never going to be an amazing full time photographer so perhaps I'm just being stupid and stubborn and should just pay the £100!
