About me:

Joined DSLR brigade 28th Nov '04

Eos 620 (no longer used), Eos 5 (no longer used), Eos 300 bodies (no longer used) & Eos 20D (no longer used), 5Dmk2 (obtained around Mar 09).
Canon 17-35 f2.8 (bit dissappointed with it quality wise, but love the wide angle it gives - on film & FF sensor at least - 'expired' 26th Dec 2009 - AF & Manual focus packed up)
Canon 24-105L f4 IS (bought as part of 5Dmk2 kit - I went for this with video in mind due to the IS on a wide-ish lens, have actually found it quite a good generally useful lens)
Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS (fantastic lens!)
Canon mk2 Converters - 1.4x & 2x
Canon 15mm FE

Rather large collection of the old Olympus manual focus system, M1, Om1, 2, 3 & 4's most of the OM prime lenses up to 600mm f6.5, OM microscopes, bellows, extension tubes etc I use a number of the lenses & macro accessories on the Canon DSLR's with an OM-EOS adapter
Canon 28-105 (no longer used)
Canon 100-300 (no longer used)

Hoya Pro1 circ polarisers
Cokin pro filters
Gitzo G2272M 3-way tripod head (great for stills & video, smooth damping on all 3 axis for video AND you can lock each axis tight so good for stills too - I have replaced two of the control arms with much smaller hand built ones for greater compactness). Pity the axis operate the way they do as you loose tilt when in portrait.

Tripod: 2 cheap alu tripods that most have in the closet. Gitzo GT1541T & GT2540LLVL

Skywatcher nEQ6 astro mount

Wish list:-
Canon 300mm f2.8 IS and/or 400mm f2.8 IS (but weight is the killer) and/or 500mm f4 IS

Dream list (aka has not been made yet):-
a fast wide angle zoom with IS (16-35 f2.8 mk3???)
a small, light, compact wide range zoom with IS for FF sensor (Sigma/Tamron 18-300mm f5.6/f6.3 ???)
Good AF under video on 5dMk2
