The angst comes from reading the thread where not one point was made as to why the D800 was needed or even useful. Couple that with the fact that a loan will be needed for the body which means the lenses are far off in the ether.
If someone said they had a savings account bursting at the seams and had a clear goal of what would better for his results than, no problem, get the full rig and someone to carry it all. But the real changes to results will come from all those less glitzy upgrades of lighting, post processing chops, a $2000 tripod and the lenses to make the D800 sing. As I mentioned, a workshop or two will have more impact then switching to a $10,000 kit.

I am thinking of my mother also, how her savings after retirement was being burned through quickly and her greatest fear was something unexpected come up and deplete her savings. She started with about $800k in investments and the bank and died with $26,000 in the bank so had less than one year of living expenses left. There is no way to earn it back when a major expense comes up.
I am wrong in my reading of the prior posts? I am not going to encourage anyone recently retired to take on debt, it can make a serious dent in quality of life if anything unexpected arises.
