About me:

D100 - love it
D200 - love it
D300 - love it
MB-D100 - bought it to make reselling the D100 easier
MB-D200 - bought it to make reselling the D200 easier
SB-800 - love it
Nikkor Lenses:
AF-S 12-24mm f/4 G ID-ED - love it
20mm f/2.8 - loved it but couldn't justify it
35mm f/2 - love it
50mm f/1.4 - love it, especially in good light
60mm f/2.8 Micro - sharpest lens in my collection
85mm f/1.4 - Amazing lens, just get one.
28-70mm f/2.8 - Very nice but I'm lusting after the new one
70-200mm f/2.8 VR - Same as above.
PD70X w/40BG drive - like it, it's really fast
Capture NX 1.3 and CS3 10.0.1
White Lightning X800 - like it
AB 400 - I use it as a hair light and like the light weight. Color consistency on mine at lower power settings is fine but power levels can fluctuate slightly.
Pocket Wizard Plus - love it
L-358 - love it
Elinchrom Style 300 and 600 RX - Love them but digital control doesn't stop them from fluctuating at lower power levels.
Gitzo 1228 - love it
Kirk BH-3 - love it
Al Jacobs Black Box x 2 - These things are just fantastic
