Corona Virus impact on camera industry?

Snobby would not be, for anyone that's knows
me, an epithet that would describe me.

As for my sense of humour, it is doing fine but
I admit that in English, many things still escape
me — like yank, had to look it up!

True, that there are subjects where I have a hard
time keeping up with a sense of humour… sorry
for that Ernesto.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

This whole BS started with dirty Chinese people eating bats and live mice right?  That being the case, the Chinese government needs to pony up some funds to get this under control.  



Sanford, in the words of NikonShooter "Really?"  I am not sure how to speak to your use of "dirty."  Completely unnecessary.  You're not actually asking a question and are simply making a judgmental statement about a place and people you have probably never seen or met.  I'd appreciate it if you didn't make such broad, generalized statements, especially since it's directed at many of my friends; "Chinese people."



As to the impact to the camera industry I wouldn't concern ourselves too much with it.  Cameras and such are luxuries and in time all will be back to normal.  This is easier for me to say because I'm not a professional, however, I would believe professionals are not buying equipment in mass quantities or very often.  It will be interesting to see if prices are affected.

Could be a good time to ditch Gear acquisition syndrome and learn the gear we have.
