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 mk1 & 2 (fantastic lens!)

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

Hoya Pro1 circ polarisers
Lee Filters (circ polariser, Graduated ND's, big stopper)
Cokin pro filters (retired)
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, +other Gitzos

Skywatcher nEQ6 astro mount
AP900 GTO astro mount

Wish list:-
Canon 300mm f2.8 IS or
Canon 400mm f2.8 IS or
Canon 500mm f4 IS
(will only get one, but can't make mind up with would be best for me - so make do with 70-200L 2.8 + converters + cropping)
