I never thought I'd say this but, there's nothing I need or even want at present :shock:

I have L Glass from 17 to 800mm + 2 cameras that I love - tried the 200-400 today - oh dear!


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

I thought I was, but I dreamed about a 200 f/2 IS last night.

Until a 14-24mm f/2.8 is released, I'm content. :)

I am content with my cameras and lenses. In fact, I need to sell an EF-S 10-22 (have FF now) and an Angle Finder C (works great but not with my glasses). The one thing I am looking to upgrade (not content) is my backpack.

Haven't felt the need/want to buy any more photo-related stuff since around March when I finished changing over from EF-s to EF.

I considered it. If it was £8k I might well have bought one. For similar money though, I got a 300mm f/2.8 and a 500mm f/4. These two give me more options than the single lens solution.

I will only be content when they invent a way to zip a camera around via remote control. Underwater. 5,000 feet in the air. Up craggy cliffs and thru mucky swamps.

If I could look all around me, no matter where I am, and:
have a way to put a camera anywhere I want to,
silently, and within mere seconds,
and then have a way to angle the camera any way I wanted to,
and a way to zoom the lens,
and a way to control all of the camera's settings via remote control -
then, and only then, would I be content. Of course, it would have to be a flagship-caliber camera capable of top-notch IQ.

Imagine seeing a flock of geese a half mile away, flying 1,000 feet above the ground - and then being able to place your camera - via remote control - right there in the midst of the flock - say, about 14 inches in front of one of the goose's heads? Wouldn't that make for some awesome imagery?

Or, how about when you see a whale purposing out at sea - wouldn't it be awesome to be able to instantly have your camera be right in front of the whale - just a couple feet away, so that you could shoot it with an ultra wide-angle lens? Wouldn't that make for an uncommonly dramatic image?

I continually see opportunities for such images, yet have no way of getting the camera where I want it to be, as quickly as it needs to be there. When I am able to capture every image I "see", then I will be content. Until then, I will be continually frustrated by constantly seeing things that I really want to make a picture of, with no way to do so.

Now, my ability to create images is drastically limited by the lack of technology. Hopefully, over the course of the next 10, 50, or 100 years, camera technology continues to improve at a very fast rate - maybe then people will be able to capture their vision much greater frequency.

Get one of those government drones to mount your camera on! :)

I have 12-24, 50mm, 18-55, 70-300. What else should I have in the stable?

I was feeling happy until I started using the 17mm TS-E and 100mm macro L. Now I am rethinking everything. I haven't used my 16-35 once since I got the 17. I might sell my 16-35 and 24-105 to get the 24-70 II (because I'm spoiled on sharpness now), and then later get the 35mm sigma and continue to pray for an updated 100-400. :)

For DSLR, yes I'm quite happy about my gears and have no desire to add anything more at this moment.

In future I think I might get mirrorless system for traveling light, but not in a hurry.

I thought I was! Hadn't acquired anything since I got the 500 3 years ago. Now the GAS bug is back and it is hard to resist. Bought the EOS-M and its 2 US lenses and adapter, that fed the bug and now it wants more!

But not the quick versatility of the zoom.
