    Searched around for a thread like this and couldn't find anything/didnt want to bump a multi-year old thread (if I could have found one) so I made this one.

    My camera gear has been restarted after all of my previous gear (lenses included) were stolen.

    Here's what I have now:

    (Bad picture because taken with old Cybershot...couldnt get a picture worth a crap without a flash)

    Canon Digital Rebel XSi w/ IS Kit lens
    Canon BG-E5 Battery Grip
    Canon Speedlight 430EX
    16GB Transcend SDHC
    Curious Cat

    I've ordered:
    Canon 200DG Gadget Bag
    Canon Wireless Remote RC1 (Replacing the stolen one)
    Still deciding on the next lens to buy, but I'm leaning towards the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

    Post your camera gear, DSLR, SLR, P&S, whatever.

    Will post a picture later on today.

    But kit is.

    Canon 400d (Rebel XTi)
    Canon 430ex speedlite
    BG-e3 Grip
    Canon RC-1 Remote
    Canon 70-200 F/4 L
    Sigma 24-70 F/2.8
    Crumpler Daily 600 bag


    Next lens for me is a Canon 300mm F/4 L with a 1.4 extender

    Note to OP the 70-200 F/4 L is a fantastic lens and a very very good price for such a quality lens

    from left to right.

    This is my outfit for shooting auto races...

    Nikon D200 with MB-D200 grip
    SB-800 Flash
    4 x 4GB CF cards

    AF-S 17-55/2.8 DX
    50/1.8D
    AF-S 70-200/2.8 VR + TC14e

    Domke F-2 bag

    I think my next lens will be a macro, like the Nikkor AF-S 60/2.8 Micro.

    What good is a photo thread without pictures...

    All were shot with my 70-200/2.8 VR at the 12 Hours of Sebring this year.
    I use shutter priority for panning shots like these.

    I recently got myself a 40D. I don't have my secondary on me at the moment, so pics will be coming later.

    I have;
    Canon 50mm f/1.8
    Tamron 28-80mm f/3.5-5 (i think)
    Canon RS-80N3 remote

    Not much of a kit so far, but it'll grow soon enough. I've only been in dSLR photography for a month or so now.

    I want to get;
    -some kind of flash. I don't really know what the options are, so I'll do a bit of homework before I spend any money.
    -Canon 15mm f/2.8 fisheye
    -a zoom lens in the ~70 to 200-300mm range
    -a good, steady tripod.

    As you can probably tell, i am a complete novice when it comes to lenses and accessories. You'll probably see my threads in the future asking for lens or accessory advice. But to see what carnage I have created now, have a look at my deviantART site (link is in sig).

    Those pics are brilliant! What's the exif like for those pics?

    Pretty sure you'll love it. Mine is hardly off my camera. Now giving some thought to getting a 1.4 extender to go with it, before I get a 300mm f/4 L IS.

    I'm extremely excited for it to come in, I'm hoping it will be here before wednesday so I can take some pictures of a local softball game for a friend. We'll see.

    Can you link to the extender?

    Is it this one?

    I'd probably buy the extender and use it for quite a while before dropping another $1,210 (Amazon price) for the 300mm f/4L IS. As nice of a lens that it is, 300mm is a focal length I can't really see myself using all the time but we'll see how I use the 70-200 and go from there for my next lens purchase.

    I'm just excited to own my first "L" lens.

    Nikon D80
    18-135mm f 3.5 - 5.6 Nikon DX AF-S with Lens Hood Link
    70-300mm f 4 - 5.6 Nikon with Lens Hood Link
    Nikon ML-L3 Remote Link
    Sunpak 2001UT Tripod Link

    I also recently found a Nikon 50mm f 1.8 Lens in my Dads old gear which i wanna try out.

    Looking to get a nice flash right now, SB-600 probably. Then later maybe selling both my lenses and getting the 18-200 VR Nikon Lens which looks awesome, but not sure yet.

    That's the one, you may find a better deal on e-bay.

    but use that with you 70-200 f/4 L and you will end up with a 98-280 f/5.6

    Don't go for the 2x extender as you 450 won't autofocus with your new lens

    Congrats on you first L lens

    Thanks for the tip scott, I'll be sure to stay away from the 2x extender when I go for one :)

    Somewhat amusing that in a thread bragging about camera gear, I'd have to use a crappy iPhone picture....

    Canon 20D with battery grip
    430EX flash, Sto-fen diffuser
    Tamron 28-75 (on body)
    Canon 50 1.4
    Sigma 50-500
    Kenko macro tubes
    Off-shoe flash cord
    Cokin P-series filter holder, Grad. ND, Linear polarizer
    Slik pro7000 legs, Manfrotto 701rc2 head (sees double duty as a video tripod)
    Manfrotto 679 monopod, 322rc2 head

    Various other geegaws and bits and CF cards in bag. Still lusting after: 70-200 2.8IS, 100mm macro, UWA lens from someone, updated 5D MkII (come on, Canon!)

    I have a 300 ƒ/2.8 as well. Might be picking up a D300 to complement my D200, either that or a 30" ACD :eek:

    The D300 might win out because I shoot almost all sports and the 5FPS of the D200 isn't cutting it. I had a D2Hs too but sold it a few months ago to fund something else. Boy is 8FPS sweet. The D300 with grip does 8FPS so its looking like a good choice. But that 30" ACD, o that would be heaven. And no, both is not an option :cool: I sure wish someone would give me 7k so i could buy a D3, and then use the rest for the ACD to look at those beautiful files on :eek:

    That's just about the same as my kit. D200, 17-55, 70-200, SB800. Except that my Domke F-2 is Olive.
