Very tempting!
This thing is the true beauty of an ultimate luxury/performance vehicle ever made, IMO.

As much as I'd spend on Canon, Leica, Hassy, Zeiss and so on I'd spend more on a massive studio space. Possibly more than one so I can travel...

I have trouble with these because I'm just like oh I would never really use a 800mm F/5.6 but why not...

I would use it constantly, so it'd definitely be on my list. Primary use would be for birds.

Ahead of the 800, however, would be the new 600mm f4. That focal length would work best (on a full frame body) for the Whitetail Deer I photograph.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I'd buy;

Two 1Dx with a few spare batteries
Canon 800mm
Canon 600mm
Canon 500mm
Canon 400mm f/2.8L IS II
Canon 300mm f/2.8L IS II
Canon 200mm f/2L IS
Canon 180mm f/3.5L Macro
Canon 135mm f/2L
Canon MP-E 65mm Macro
Canon 50L
Canon 24mm f/1.4L II
Canon 14mm f/2.8L II
All four current Canon TS-E lenses
I'd find one of the 1200mm f/5.6L lenses for sale and buy it.
Canon 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4xTC - When it comes out
Canon 24-70 f/2.8L - probably mk2 but I like the lens hood design on the mk1 (depends on how much better the mk2 is over the mk1)
Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II
Canon 8-15mm f/4 fisheye
Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 - Might as well see what all the price is about, right? ;)
Sigma 300-800mm
Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 OS
Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM

Crap loads of the fastest memory available for video shooting, works just as good for photos.
Crap loads of flashes, either Canon 580ex II or the newest one to come out... Maybe 5 or 6 with stands, umbrellas, softboxes, and Pocketwizards for all of them.
Carbon tripod that can hold the 1200mm and 1Dx combo.
Carbon tripod that is more practical for daily use and hiking.

And finally...
Tickets to travel the world and make use of all the gear.

On the Nikon side, I'd buy all the used items on craigslist locally and I'd use them as target practice for my newly purchased firearms on my newly purchased land.

Don't forget to hire a couple of lens caddies.

3. Really right stuff CF tripod maybe, and head?
4. Sigma 150 OS macro and 120-300 OS (or maybe the nikon 200-400)
5. For the canon side let's say the new 600 and some tc's.

Looks like some people are just going to buy one of everything on the product list.

My camera gear does most of what I ask for it, so I'd probably be more interested in a decent studio space and some Profoto or Broncolor lights and shapers.

That said, I would drop some small change down on a couple of 1DXs and probably a 5D3. And a 200/2.0.

And probably a small case of things from Phase One.

And a new 4WD for carting it around in.

That's all.

Probably.
