Re: How many cameras and lenses since the D300

Hmm - non-camera/lens stuff:

Gitzo 3550 & BH-55 ballhead.  L-plates for each camera+grip.   Macro rail from RRS.   RRS tripod collars (3), various remote controls (Phottix, SMDR), SB900, SB910, 3 Pocketwizard TT5's, several bags.

Cameras: D700 & D800e.   V1 & V2.   Canon s95 (for scuba)


24-70, 80-400 AF-D, 80-400g, 70-200vr II, 12-24F4, 14-24F2.8, 300F4, 105vr, 85F1.8g, 50F1.4g, 35F2, Sigma 35F1.4, 10.5DX.  CX gear included 10-30, 30-110, 18.5, 10-100vr and SB-N5 flash, plus the FT-1 adapter.

Basically an explosion in gear, many lenses replacing older versions collected since my Nikon film days.   Before the D300 I had a D200 + 18-200vr, and when I grew dissatisfied with the IQ from that lens, there was almost no end to gear acquisition.  (And I've enjoyed it all).

I don't have much to regret, though I've only used the macro rail once so far.  (Eventually I'll get into it.)

Perhaps I regret buying my latest Thinktank bag, a roller backpack.    I wanted to try the roller to replace the Airport Accelerator and get some weight off my back.   But I can't fit NEAR the gear from the Accelerator into the similarly-sized roller bag.  (The handle and wheels cut hugely into the amount of room.)
