What gear do you all use?

So what equipment are we all using and what is incoming?

I have the following

Body
Nikon D90 with MB-D80 Grip

Lenses
Nikon 18-105mm 3.5-5.6 VR
Nikon 50mm 1.8
Sigma 24-70mm 2.8

Various filters
Wired and Wireless remotes
Random Tripod

Incoming
A wide angle - Sigma 10-20mm or Tokina 11-16
Some longer faster glass, potentially Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 but need to save some pennies first
after those maybe a macro lense but not a huge priority

I have an old Fuji bridge camera and a Nikon Coolpix as well but they are gathering dust.

I borrowed a friends sb900 the a while back for a little job, was an eye opener, was always anti flash before then as had only experienced the onboard unit.

One of those is probably underneath the macro lense on the wishlist, along with a D4.....

Yeah thats the stuff that I can remeber and actually see some use. There are a number of lenses buried away, an SLR body or two and even a twin lens reflex somewhere.

They are great little cameras, that's what mine is, I got mine after trying Steve's at his place.

I went hunting through a big box of old lenses in a second hand shop here the other week with the hope of finding a gem of a prime or similar.

No such luck, they didn't have any Nikon mounts at all.
