I probably would've bought a 5D MkII at that price but they always sell out before I get there. Probably a better that way.

Body: Canon T3i (550d)
Lenses: 100-400L IS, 24-70L 2.8, Sig 15-30dg, 18-55 IS kit lens, 50 1.8 (now in two pieces , but it saved the camera)
Tripod: Manfrotto 3021b, 108 head
Filters: daylight/UV
Flashes/Strobes: old sig does not work with T3i
storage/travel bag:Tamrac CyperPack 8 = big & POS. Backpack straps had cast rings and they cracked while on my back. Pack fell to the ground and my 100-400 was the first thing to hit. By some miracle only the filter suffered damage. But this a warning to all others- examine the hardware on your cases and if it's cast, replace it.
other accessories: studio lights/boxes for product shots and portraits
Post Processing: always and to the degree needed- Photoshop is my darkroom

Just realized I never listed all my stuff:

Body: Canon Rebel XTi | Canonet GIII QL17 | Agfa-Parat Half Frame
Lenses: Canon 50mm f/1.8 | Tamron 19-35mm f/3.5-5.6 | Sigma 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 & 70-300mm f/4-5.6
Tripod: yes, a cheapo that does the job.
Filters: UV | Circular Polarizer
Flashes/Strobes: Canon 550EX Speedlite; Alien Bees B800 | 32" Octabox | Cybersync remote trigger and receiver
Storage/travel bag: My pockets seem to work well for me.
Other accessories: Backdrop setup and a couple muslins for portraits, remote shutter switch.
Post Processing: Photoshop 7

I'm in the process of selling my light and backdrop setup because I don't really use it that much anymore, unfortunately.

A few photos:

Too lazy to list everything.

The important bit is my Canon T2i w/ Tamron 14-54mm, Sigma 100-300mm, and Canon f/1.8 50mm (Thrifty Fifty).

I just recently went from the old Canon XT body to the new T2i so I dont have a ton of photos yet, but here are a few:

This is why I bought a good DSLR and am learning how to use it. Yes, my pictures technically suck, but they look great on my 11" Kodak picture frame.

BTW... if you don't have a digital picture frame, you're missing out. We bought them for all the grandparents a few years ago and they are just about the best gift you could ever give to anybody.
They hook up to your wifi and have their own email address... so, take a picture on your cel-phone, and email it directly to their frame real-time. It adds itself to the lineup. Every time I download a full memory card onto our computers, I pick a dozen or so of the best pics and email them to all the frames. They also have the standard built-in card readers.

Here's the ones we have... completely idiot-proof and you're up and running in about 5 minutes. They are worth every f'ing penny.

Wow- that digiframe looks like a good fit for grandparents.

I suppose the bright side of a cheap plastic lens is you can epoxy it back together.

No need for epoxy unless you actually broke the plastic inside. That lens should just snap right back together once aligned properly. I've dropped and popped mine about four or five times, and it always goes right back together. Best $100 in photographic equipment that I've ever spent. Mine is six years old and keeps going.

Damn- you were right about being able to snap 'em back together. Unfortunately I lost some of the "hooks" that do the snapping when it hit. It clicks in and sticks, but then pops back out at random. Agreed on the value- I got mine with my D60 in 03.

I wish the 28-300 was available for DX. I know its double the price but it is totally worth it. For now my 55-200 will have to do.

I know, but I hate swapping filters, and I was literally all over the place that weekend...jumping in and out of trucks to get shots, climbing hills and trees to get a good vantage point of the trail, etc. No way I wanted to be messing around swapping lenses or filters.

My next lens will be either the Tokina 11-16 or the Nikon 10-24. Pricewise, both are about the same over here.
