I'd buy;

Two 1Dx with a few spare batteries
Canon 800mm
Canon 600mm
Canon 500mm
Canon 400mm f/2.8L IS II
Canon 300mm f/2.8L IS II
Canon 200mm f/2L IS
Canon 180mm f/3.5L Macro
Canon 135mm f/2L
Canon MP-E 65mm Macro
Canon 50L
Canon 24mm f/1.4L II
Canon 14mm f/2.8L II
All four current Canon TS-E lenses
I'd find one of the 1200mm f/5.6L lenses for sale and buy it.
Canon 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4xTC - When it comes out
Canon 24-70 f/2.8L - probably mk2 but I like the lens hood design on the mk1 (depends on how much better the mk2 is over the mk1)
Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II
Canon 8-15mm f/4 fisheye
Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 - Might as well see what all the price is about, right? ;)
Sigma 300-800mm
Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 OS
Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM

Crap loads of the fastest memory available for video shooting, works just as good for photos.
Crap loads of flashes, either Canon 580ex II or the newest one to come out... Maybe 5 or 6 with stands, umbrellas, softboxes, and Pocketwizards for all of them.
Carbon tripod that can hold the 1200mm and 1Dx combo.
Carbon tripod that is more practical for daily use and hiking.

And finally...
Tickets to travel the world and make use of all the gear.

On the Nikon side, I'd buy all the used items on craigslist locally and I'd use them as target practice for my newly purchased firearms on my newly purchased land.


5D4 | 8-15L | 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS | 24L II | 40mm pancake | 100L IS | 70-200mm f/2.8L IS mk2 | 400mm f/4 DO IS

I'd start a local Canon museum. The ones not in use will be kept there.

Buy Canon Inc. if you have enough money or become a shareholder.

Only a few things are on my dream list;

1Dx + 24L II
1Dx + 200mm f2L

The rest, I already have :)
Oh and upgrade my flashes to the new 610's and 24-70L II.

Otherwise I'd buy a house and an Audi S8.... AAAAH

Wow, I don't think I have enough years left to live to be able to save up for one of those! But if I won lotto, hmmm, tempting.

Sure if you like to piss away money
otherwise you could just spend half as much on PCs that are just as fast and get hackintosh if you really like Mac OS. I mean they basically use the same hardware anyway :rolleyes:

I just love posts like this:

I'm willing to pay for customer service. I've had problems with my Macs before but then had it all fixed for free under apple care. Also Hackintoshs aren't completely stable. Plus, business write off!

All right then 50 mill it is. I would have a house and studio built on the same property so I could shoot when ever i want just by walking right beside my house. I would fill the studio with all the gear to complete it. I would set my grand kids up for college or university. Travel the world to shoot till I dropped lol!! NOW THAT WOULD BE FUN!
