Can't beleive it but I won! what shoudl I pick?
Dec 29, 2004

oh my..I just received a notice that I won the Editor's pick award for 2004 macro category, 1st place winner..

now according to the page, (still can't beleive it!) I won this:

First Place Winner -

A $240.00 Wimberley Shopping Spree Certificate for use on the Wimberley website

A $240.00 Kirk Enterprises Shopping Spree Certificate for use on the Kirk Enterprises website

A $240.00 Vested Interest Shopping Spree Certificate for use on the Vested Interest website
A $75.00 Photoflex Shopping Spree Certificate for use in the NPN Gift Shoppe
Special edition Editor’s Pick Award 2004 NPN Field Cap
1-year extention of their Nature Photographers Network membership
Editor's Pick Awards 2004 Certificate

problem is...I really don't know what to pick from that. I was thinking of a sidekick from Wimberley:

a BH-3 ball head from Kirk:

and a Still jacket from Vested:

is that a good choice? I don't know much about this stuff and need help on choosing this. Any thoughts? Or should I just pick something up and resell it on ebay and put that money toward a 100-400 L? is a ballhead and sidekick really worth it?

I am not sure that I have all these prices?? but it looks like it:
