Camera (DSLR): Canon 40D and proud of it! My 5D and 1D MKII were to heavy and devaluing too quickly so I sold them.
Camera (SLR): Rolleiflex SL25 w/ 50mm f1.8 lens
Camera (Digital Point & Shoot): Canon Powershot G9 (The best P&S ever!)
Lenses: Sigma 10-20 f3.5-5.6 EX| Canon 24-105 f4 IS L | Sigma EF 30mm f1.4 | Canon EF 70-200mm USM f2.8 IS L | Canon EF 300mm f4 IS L
Flash: Canon MR-14EX | Canon 430ex | Sto Fen Omnibounce | 40 Batteries
Bag: Freaking TENBA backpack that cost me $215 dollars | Tamrac System 3 | Lowepro Elite Convertible (got it for $3 at a Garage Sale! :))
Pods: Manfrotto TriPod and MonoPod | Silver TriPod | Mini metal TriPod for Macro | Home made MonoPod (cost $30 to make) sitting somewhere in a garbage dump. LOL
Misc: 7 memory cards | 8 batteries | And a bag full of other stuff.
Former Lenses: Canon EFs 10-22 | Canon 24-70 f2.8 L | Canon 28-80 f2.8-4 L | Canon 80-200 f2.8 L | Canon EF 100mm f2.8 Macro | Canon 17-35 f2.8 L | Canon 17-40 f4 L | Tokina 12-24 f4 | Sigma 24-70 f2.8 EX DG | Canon 70-200 f4 L | Canon 75-300 f4.5-5.6 IS | Tamron 200-500 f4-6.3 | Canon 50 f1.8 | Canon 50 f1.4 |

Dream set up (may 2007): I would love to own a 1Ds MK II and a 16-35 f2.8 L, 24-70 f2.8 L and a 300 f2.8 IS L and use them with my 20D flawlessly. Of course this is only a dream though because although I might be able to afford that set up, I wouldn't be able to not afford to not use that set up all the time. So the chances of me ever owning any of that is remote, with exception to the 24-70 f2.8 L, that is already in my bag. (Comment Oct 2009: Heck I would still take that set up but I wouldn't worry about not using it all the time.)
