when I build out my "dream" kit on bhphoto and it totaled out to $30,480.70. Sadly, even if I had all that I would still have a couple medium formats on my wish list, a couple thinktank bags, a better computer, and other just for fun stuff. Also no lights were included... Crap. I need to start charging more for weddings. Whats your dream bh shopping cart look like?

Well, let's see:

2x 1D Mark IV
1x 16-35mm F2,8 L II
1x 24-70mm F2,8 L
1x 70-200mm F2,8 L USM IS II
1x 100-400mm F4,5-5,6 L IS
4x Speedlite 580EX II
set of PocketWizards

That comes to about 19K euros. And that doesn't even cover CF cards and other bits. Ouch. :lol:

That's nothing. Mine is something like $230,000.

I should probably take that Aston Martin V12 Vantage Carbon Black off there...

Hehe...I'm pretty close to my 'ideal kit' - although I would still like either a Zeiss 21 or TS-E 24 mk II. And that 85L should get at least a test drive...

What gets scary is when you register stuff with the insurance agent and tally up how much you've spent on it...

Problem is it is $39,995 USD! Well, at least it comes with an 80mm lens! :)

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

So...what else do you plan to do with the money? Spend it doing what you enjoy, if that's photography by all means purchase photographic gear - or find a good inexpensive camera and take trips to exotic locations to take photographs. Enjoy life, it's too short to sweat the small stuff and $30k is small stuff.
