1. A Wide angle zoom, probably the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 if I can find it
2. 580exII
3. Better tripod
4. Grip
5. Whatever it is, by the time I get to it, it will change -- maybe the yet to be announced, but heavily rumored, new 100-400

Change my 50 1.8 for maybe the Sigma 50 1.4 - other than that- I am happy with what I have.

I think I am done accumulating stuff. I just downsized from ten Canon lenses to five specifically because I didn't want to own so many lenses (I hated making decisions when packing a bag and usually wound up bringing too much stuff). And the performance of recent camera bodies made me decide that I could live without a bunch of primes.

I used to think I'd get a really fast telephoto (like the 300/2.8 ) but with usable ISO12800 arriving I just can't see it anymore.

Hmmm, I've been thinking of downgrading as I just don't use my full frame gear often enough. But I would like a 135 f/2 that I can use on my 40D. Then I think my setup would be totally complete: 10-22, 30 1.4, 50 1.2, 85 1.8, 135 2.0

My 450D is ready for upgrade to FF
;)

My Priorities :
1. Move to FF.
2. More flash..

I'm pretty satisfied at the moment.

I may buy a carbon fiber tripod but only if my sensibility fails me.

Since I recently splurged and got a pretty elaborate studio lighting and backdrop setup, and LR III,......I'm going to have to cool it for a bit.......but, I'm still dreaming of a couple of items...

1- 70-200mm f/2.8 Mk II w/ 1.4x extender (to replace my 70-300)
2- 100 mm f/2.8 L IS Macro (to replace my 60mm Macro)
3- 85mm f/1.8 (to replace my nifty fifty)
4- Zeiss 100mm f/2 Makro Planar
5- 5D Mk III

Apart from the 70-200, the others are items I'm not likely to go for, anytime soon, but it's fun to daydream...:cool:

.


Canon T2i ** EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 ** EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS ** EF 50mm f/1.8 II ** EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro ** Lensbaby ** Canon S5 IS P/S camera

I'm more than happy with my current setup. But I do have a few things I would like to get should I ever have a bit of spare cash.

1. 100mm 2.8L IS macro
2. Tripod
3. Umbrella/light stand
4.
5.

I seriously can't think of anything else for 4 or 5. I have had the occasional thought of upgrading my 70-200 f/4L IS to the 2.8 Mk II, but I don't need/use 2.8 ... but then that little voice says, "but what if.... " yeah yeah, shut up stupid voice, you don't know what I need. :)

3) More lighting
4) Backdrops etc.
5) 5D3 about 6~8 months after it's released....
