Nikon AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR lens.


Nice! A very sharp lens; this one would be at the top of my short list, if I primarily used Nikon cameras.

Read lots of reviews & seen quite a few pics from it, so it should be more than adequate for me.
I was initially wondering about the 24-120mm, as a single walkabout/take on holiday lens, but decided the 16-35 with 50mm & 70-300 would be a better option really, even though it'll mean swapping lenses over. Can't wait to try it out & see if I can do it justice.........just need this damn rain to stop! :(

A Canon 40mm pancake lens.
Mmm, pancakes. So cheap, so yummy. (Drives off to IHOP.)

EDIT: I missed the sponsor link. Looked specificly for a 40mm link on the Canon lens line up page and Canon forum, but didn't notice the huge Amazon banner on page 1. Tunnel vision. :oops:

Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM with both discount and cashback from Canon. The 10-22 will likely appear in the "What have you just sold?" thread at some point in the future

And yeah, the repairs on my 5D2 are done, so both will be with me next week :D

Manfrotto 055XPROB legs and 808RC4 for some ridiculous sum of money :D A good tripod should last me years though so I guess it's not that bad!

Some SD card cases, a long 3m USB to mini USB cable and Adobe Lightroom 4! I don't think I'll buy anything for a while as I ponder where next to go with my Canon kit :D

Heavily used D300 as a backup for a family wedding along with a SB 700, extra memory cards and batteries and a 5 in 1 reflector.

I know I said I wouldn't buy anything but... I bought a San Disk Extreme Pro 16gb (one of the new 95mbps ones as apposed to my 8gb 45mbps one) and a Transcend Class 10 32gb SD card for video. The value of the Transcend cards never ceases to amaze me :D

Ive bought my dream camera!

The 1D IV? nope
1Dx? nope!
A 5D series then? NOPE!

Ive bought the Canon G5!
Yes! $30. Pity the command dial's broken (didn't know that...) so I have to use the camera in Program, but hey. They gave me a camera bag (a big one, just what I was looking for), a Hoya 72mm Circ. Polar (a flat one), a ''fish-eye'' with adapters, three BP-11 batteries (yes, same as the x0D), several UV and Polar filters from Hama and last but not least a 512MB CF.

Okay, pity I have to use the G5 in P, but the Hoya 72mm Polar is worth alone more than $35, and I have a camera bag now. -from Minolta :lol:
I guess there will come a 2nd G5 in the future, but I think Ive become quite a bit richer next week after selling everything :lol:

Just bought the Lowepro Fastpack 350. Not the new Video one, because that one is actually smaller, but the old and decent award winning Fastpack. Selling my Fastpack 200 now too, hope to sell it fast online since I have no further use for it now...

After a lot of shopping around and lots of reviews I have just bought a canon powershot a4000is point and shoot to replace my old Ixus.

Needed something to fit in my pocket or shove in a bag. :D


Oh and a 2-8 stop variable neutral density filter for my dslr.... Couldn't resist.

Bought an MP3 player in China for $2 and an 8GB Micro SD for $3 to put the music on, and with free shipping it's almost a joke.

Yesterday: Think Tank Skin Body Bag.

Today: Nikon SB-400 flashgun.

The Body Bag is made to hold a pro-sized DSLR body, without a lens, on the belt. The new EF 40mm "pancake" lens is so small, it fits on the 5D just fine, inside the bag. Because my 5D is not equipped with a battery grip, it appears there may be room for a very small flashgun to remain mounted in place, should one wish to do so. (My Canon-fit flashguns are too large to remain on the 5D.)

The SB-400 is for my wife, uses her Nikon D7000 at work. She has been using an SB-800, and had been mentioning its bulk. I had been offering to buy her an SB-400 for a number of months, but she had declined. Today she saw my SB-30, and wanted it, but I told her the SB-30 was for Nikon film cameras, and would not work in TTL mode, if at all, on her D7000. Sensing her envy and disppointment, I arbitrarily bought the SB-400, and now she is quite happy.
