I would call myself a Hobbyists+ :) See my signature for my lens list....six years in the making!

I shoot a lot of weddings Pro Bono...the next one is on 3 SEP 2011.

AND, the good news is that my 70-200MM f/2.8 EF L MKII shipped yesterday via UPS and arrives at my office by 1030 :)

The secret to amassing a great lens lineup is:

a. A great paying day job
b. A very (and I mean very) understanding wife
c. AMEX Rewards Points Program...half my collection was "free!"


Jim -- I keep the G5X in the Glove Box just in case!
7D, G5X, 10-22MM EF-S, 17-55MM f/2.8 EF-S IS, 24-105MM f/4 EF L

Yep...that is what my brother does with his AMEX Rewards. He takes his wife to Hawaii every winter :) I prefer to "feed" my lens addiction! :)

There's much more to a lens than just focal length.
