A year ago I had the nifty fifty and a Black Rapid RS-5. Both have since been sold off. I've also picked up a 7D since then. :)

Two years ago i had 5DII, 1DIIN, 40D and several Rebel bodies, with TS-E24L, 28/1.8, 50L, 100L, 17-40L, 24-70L, 70-200L and fisheye.

Now i have less, but i know what i need, and what's more important - i know that better equipment does not make better images. :-)

1 year ago just the 1000d and the kit 18-55mm lens. I bought the 50mm 1.8 in May/June and just bought the Tamron 55-200mm a few days ago ( not had a chance to take it out yet ).

The above will be getting passed on to my wife as soon as I get my February works bonus, then I'll be looking at a new camera body and some new lenses, still not sure what I'll be able to afford until the money hits my bank account :)

I went through a lot of churn in my gear in an attempt to find better IQ for an upgrade for my wife's P&S Camera (S95).

2012 (Me): 5DII, 24-70 2.8L, 70-200 2.8L II, 35 1.4L, 85 1.8
2012 (her): Lumix GF3.

Spring 2012: I sold the 24-70 2.8L, GF3, and bought an Olympus OM-D EM-5. This was the 1st time I went awhile without a general zoom (8 months).

Fast forward to 2013 and we went back to the fundamentals. Trying to force my wife to use an advanced camera that had interchangeable lenses like the OM-D was asking too much. We sold the entire M43 kit (OMD & 14mm, 25mm, 45mm). And I upgraded bodies, bought my zoom, and a simpler P&S style for her - which she now LOVES!

2013 (Me): 5D III, 24-70mm 2.8L II, 70-200mm 2.8L II, 35mm 1.4L, 85mm 1.8. The 85mm will be sold soon since I rarely use it.
2013 (her): Sony RX100

5D IV | 35 f1.4L | 50 f1.8 STM | 85 f1.4L IS | 135 f2L | 16-35 f4L IS | 24-70 f2.8L II | 70-200 f2.8L IS II | 600EX RT | Gear List | Semper Fi
