    We have the it's Christmas, what lens "Should" I buy myself thread. How about the It's Christmas, if I could have anything, what I would buy myself thread. Keeping in the realm of photography, what would you want? For me, a nice new and shiny Nikkor 600mm f/4. Yes, that's the ticket. I already have a 400 f/3.5, and a (gag) 500 f/8 mirror. So the 600 would fit nicely in my kit. Well, as big as it is, "fit" is a work that doesn't.

    EOS1Ds II with every white lens and every prime :)

    Perhaps a little unrealistic, but here's hoping!

    About as unrealistic as me getting the 600 this year. Besides a D2X will come long before the 600.

    Or if you want to go REALLY out there into the $$$, it'd be a Hasselblad H2D.

    The evils of consumerism compel you!

    I'd wanna have two Profoto Acute 2400 powerpacks with 5 heads, stands, backgrounds and light modifiers.

    Also, a compete Hassy system, 50/1.4 Planar, 21mm biogon, 135/2 canon L and a full frame camera with Canon CMOS chip housed in nikon F3Ma with 100% viewfinder and manual "shutter winder"

    Also a perfect tripod head suitable for every type of shooting which weighs a pound.
