    As an amateur/professional, what photography equipment do you absolutely must have if you can only purchase them one at a time? IOW, List them in order of importance. Here, my order is based on essential and preference.

    external flash
    monopod
    tripod
    Zoom lens + hood
    Prime lens
    Extra fast memory card
    Wide angle lens
    EOS 1DS Mark III :blushing:

    I minimized my list to essentials only, but include anything in between if you feels that it is just as important.

    Remote release is key.

    When I don't have mine, my shots suffer. I'ma bit shaky to say the least.
