It will break.
"Perfect" isn't. "Mint" tastes more like "lemon".
Just when you thought you fixed the last problem, a new one will appear.
The next auction for an item like the one you just "won" will close $75 lower than what you paid.
The mailman will come when you're not home, and only your spouse will be there to receive yet another box from Atlanta, Los Angeles, or Eastern Europe.
Your new lens will not mount on the camera properly.
Your new camera body will have more problems than your old one.
The next guy's Kiev works fine while yours is always "reliability challenged".
Your important shot will come out blurry while Uncle Ed's shot from an APS camera will be sharp.
The only people who appreciate your "investment" in Kiev gear are your online friends who are also Kievaholics.
