Wildlife and Theatre/Concert are my biggest genre's, pretty much everything I shoot is moving in poor light ;-)

OtherGear: 2.93 gHz Intel iMac 27" with 16Gb memory
Tripod: Gitzo GT5541 (purchased from Nikonians PhotoProShop)
Gimbal: Jobu Design Black Widow Heavy Duty
Ground pod: Jobu Design
Monopod: Gitzo 3531 and RRS HD tilt-swivel
Heads: Kirk BH-3, Leitz Ballhead
Kirk LP-47 foot for the 500VR, love my Kirk stuff
Bags: Urban Disguise 40/70 and TTF International
MainAF: Using AF most of the time
MainMetering: Using 3D matrix metering most of the time
MainMode: Aperture Priority
I am very pleased with my Nikon gear, no plans to switch
Experience: Advanced in some areas; newbie in others ;-)
