Just for fun: Last & next purchases?

I'm excited, like a kid on Christmas, because I just gt a 6D and a 40mm "pancake" lens. My first body in 6 years, and my first lens in 1.5-2 years.

So, just for fun, what was your last significant photo-related purchase, and what are you eying for your next one?

I'm thinking a carbon tripod for my next goal, though I do want to get another tilt-shift lens, a 45mm or 24mm this time, too.

My last significant was a swap selling my 1D3 and upgrading to a 1D4.

Next? I have dreams of once again owning a 200mm f/1.8 or maybe even the f/2 IS version.
I'm also very curious about the 7D2, and or the Sony A7r.

I don't think it's likely I'll be able to afford ANY of the above :)

P.S. I do love the pancake, it's just so easy and fun to use with simply perfect IQ and focus. If all lenses could be so ideal!

I will be moving from Canon to Leica M. A couple of M bodies and a 21 Lux and a 90 Cron APO are in the works to join my MM and 35 Lux FLE which were my last camera and lens purchase.

Polaroid 100, just finished redoing every single thing on the camera.
Should be good for another 50 years.

As for next purchase either the Rokinon 8mm or Canon 24mm pancake.

Last purchase... 1d Mk3 from KEH. Next purchase? Probably the Sigma 35 Art.

What about your amazing 200mm f2, will you be sad to give that up?

My last was the 16-35mm f4. And since I'm loving wide angle shooting, next I would like to think might be the (so far only rumoured) 11-24mm f4 :D

Hmmmm if I were lucky enough to own those it would break my heart to part with them, regardless of what else it allowed me to buy. I hope you enjoy the new gear!

Have you ever experienced Leica M glass? My 35 Lux FLE is sharper in the corners than the 35L is in the center.

I really like my 200 2L. One of the absolute best by Canon but it is heavy and I have really been bitten by rangefinders and Leica M glass is as good as it gets.

Two CL 360, 43 inch Octa, 33 inch BD

Then turned around and bought a Sigme 35mm Art

Quite broke right now, not going to be buying anything major anytime soon. Need to dig up some big diffusers.

I just got a rok 14mm 2.8.

Next I'm looking for a new body. I was waiting to see if the 7d2 was it. But now that it's out it doesn't look like a good fit. I'll probably grab a70D.

Last camera gear i bought was my Leica M240 and 50 Summarit
Next bits of gear will be a hood for the summarit, compact carbon tripod and then a 28 and 90 summicron (maybe, the 90 is a bit tricky to focus, i am looking at other options too)
