Have you ever been finished buying new equipment?

Barring future as yet unreleased upgrades... have you ever been at a point where you felt you had literally everything you wanted and needed as far as photography equipment?

I can answer 'no'... there's always something left to get.

For where my photography is at right now, my honest answer is Yes...

The only area in which I woud have a hole would be specialty architecture as I don't have a T/S lens but if I.M. Pei calls, I'm sure I could get one.

Nope, still find times limited by what I have and what I'd like to do at times...

At this point, no, although not necessarily for the sake of upgrading as much as trying new systems. For example, I still want to try out medium format cameras, including, for example, a TLR, the Mamiya rangefinder, and a Holga.

In a sense yes, because, there is so much you can buy for the current body or bodies that you have. Surely, I don't intend to buy the whole range of lenses and find out that I only need about 5 lenses or so.

I am not going to spend on everything for my entry level body. Wouldn't make sense. I know the lenses can be used on bodies that can be used on EF/EF-S mounts

Honestly I can say Yes at this point. My current gear allows me to do everything I need or want to do.

There's always something for me. Right now it's lighting and the many doo-dads that make it work, work better, or work more conveniently.

Woo, Wee! Thanks! I needed that! I fell out of my chair laughing at that subject title. Technology? Take a rest? And leave us alone (and prosperous) for a while? Great stuff... great stuff.

Close, I still have a few items left on my wish list but there is no sense of urgency to buy them. I'm on the waiting list for CyberSync Pluses at Paul C Buff but that counts as future tech as does the soon to be released Cyber Commander.

I think I'll stop when I finally get my 1DsMKIII, 5DMKII and, 16-35L II, 24L, 35L, 50L, 85L, 135L, 200L, 300L, 400L, 500L.

But that's not happening until I hit the lottery..so for now..I can say I'm not done yet.
