Nice collection! Just have to rub in the Wings loss to my Stars last night...because it is so rare for us to win at the Joe. Nice to see a fellow hockey fan on here.

Yeah can't win them all, but they came close back in the 90's...

Hockey is Life!!!



All the world's indeed a stage and we are merely players performers and portrayers.

I've pretty much got mine, I think. About the only thing I'd really like is one of the new TS-E, probably the 24 TS-E II.

Otherwise, I'm pretty content on glass. Studio lighting is my next endeavor.

I'm also close to the dual trinities :lol:. I want the 85LII but two things are holding me back. The 85 1.8 is extremely fast and the 85L II is extremely expensive.

I'm actually very happy with my current kit since switching to Nikon. It's currently 5 lenses, 3 zooms and one prime:

  • nikkor 14-24mm 2.8
  • nikkor 24-70mm 2.8
  • nikkor 70-300 VR
  • nikkor 50mm 1.4
  • sigma 24mm 1.8


the picking three would be hard. I'd go with 2 zooms and one prime, but which lenses would be the hard part. The 14-24mm would stay for sure. The 24-70 gets more use as the second zoom, but I'd have better coverage with the 70-300 so that's a toss up. I'd probably go with the 24mm as the fast prime. It's a good lens but I was spoiled by my 24L so it doesn't feel quite as good.

Also, I USE it as a three lens kit for "work". The zooms go everywhere with me. The primes are for low light shooting around the house. So in terms of making money it'd be the zooms.

That's the realistic part (still don't have the 85mm...).
When I start dreaming, I sometimes add 300L 2.8 IS...
