Previously owned gear that I can somewhat speak intelligently about:

Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT w/ kit lens (SOLD!)
Canon EOS 40D (returned due to front focusing problems)
Canon EOS 1D (SOLD!)
Canon EOS 1D Mark II N (damn fine camera I tell ya, damn fine)
Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM (sold - UWA prime is in my future)
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM (sold for the 16-35L)
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM (I really liked this lens, but weening myself from zoom dependency)
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L USM (very nice, but f/4 was too slow for my needs at the time)
Canon EF 28-80mm f/2.8-4L USM (sold - just wish the damn thing had a constant aperture)

Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USM (awesome travel lens - shouldn't have sold)
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L (SOLD!)
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM (The sharpest and most beautiful zoom lens I've ever used)
Canon EF 80-200mm f/2.8L (sold for the 135L)
Canon EF 35mm f/2 (saw no point in keeping it)
Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM (one of the sharpest primes I've had the pleasure of owning, but prefer the 24L)
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Mark I (sold for 50 1.4)
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II USM (just plain sold)
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM (sold for the 3rd time)
Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM (I'm sorry I had to sell this)
Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 (absolutely the best bang-for-buck portrait lens in Canon's line-up IMO)
Canon EF 2x II Extender (Get the hell out of my house!)
Leica 35-70mm f/3.5 Vario-Elmar-R (67mm) (beautiful lens, but needed the AF, convenience and compatability of Canon EF mounts)
Leica 100mm f/2.8 APO-Macro-Elmarit-R (arguably the best macro lens ever made - sold for same reason above)
Canon MR-14ex Macro Ring Lite
