Probably a camera with good dynamic range. Since you're posting here I suspect you're considering a Pentax camera? you can't go wrong with them, pretty much every modern Pentax camera has very good dynamic range, but then you need some technique to take the shot and afterwards for post-processing.

Am I the only one who takes pleasure in photographing other photographers? I've seen this couple several times while cruising the city for photo opportunities, this time I took my chance and snapped a picture of them (FA 77).

I also refuse to use Windows 10, Windows 7 works perfectly for me right now :D

I did not mean my post to sound contradictory/offensive by any means, if it does, my apologies. It's just that my own experience was such that I was able to give up the DVD/CD drive without any consequences.

This is not a problem nowadays, I can't remember when was the last time when I installed the OS from DVD. Pretty much any modern motherboard supports OS installation via USB and it's actually much faster (took me 3-5 minutes to install Windows from USB to SSD system drive). If you need printer drivers or such, you can just download them via internet.

if you have Windows with license on some DVD, there are ways around it, like getting a clean image from Microsoft, writing the image on USB stick then installing from USB using your license number.


Later on if you absolutely need a DVD unit for some reason, you can get a portable one.

Few thoughts:


Processor: I would go for the best i7 that I can afford; I would not go for the latest release as those tend to be more expensive with minimal increase in performance;
RAM Memory: 16 GB minimum, operating frequency is also important;
Storage: I would go for one SSD for operating system and applications (including Lightroom catalog) and some HDD's for storage of actual photography files. I would consider a back-up solution, either as a separate HDD or some online backup service; for online backup you need to be prepared to pay a monthly or annual fee and also good internet connection is required;
Power supply: don't be cheap on this one, get a good reliable power supply from a dedicated brand;
Video card: Not sure about this one, I settled for something in the upper-average segment because I'm not sure if applications such as Lightroom or Photoshop make the best use of the graphic card; maybe the situation is different now, it has been a while since my last build;
Cooling fan: You might wanna pay attention to this one also - when I'm processing my photos I don't like to be disturbed by a noisy processor fan; Noctua for instance makes some good fans which are also quite silent;
Case: Make sure that the case is able to fit the motherboard/videocard/fan combo; also it would be nice to get something with the option to easily replace/change HDD's;

I would not consider a DVD unit at all neither for reading or writing CD/DVD, I think CD/DVS's are a bit obsolete and not stable in time. There were plenty of times in the past when I stored my data on DVD's and they got scratched or something and I couldn't read the data. I don't think they are reliable on a long term. Nowadays I just use high capacity USB sticks if I want to transfer programs, for back-ups I just use HDD's or just store my data online.
