    Someone asked on another post that we have people post up a picture of their camera with their favorite set-up...this can include flash, wizards and of course, lens!

    Here is my favorite. 1D Mark III with 70-200 f2.8L IS, 580EX II and straight bracket with a Pocketwizard transmitter.

    Should this be in the equipment forum?

    ah well...

    My current favorite setup is:

    M8
    12mm Heliar
    35mm Summarit
    50mm Noctilux
    75mm Summarit

    Just got the M8 and I'm still adjusting to the whole digital rangefinder... I'm getting to like it more and more each time I make time to shoot.

    For flash, believe it or not I found the Canon 550EX with battery pack to be most effective.

    My setup changes... and therefore, the setup that is my favorite is the one that let's me get the shot under the conditions that I am in at the time.

    That may be with the 30mm F/1.4 as easily as it could be with the 70-200 ES ID VR F/2.8, or a 105mm F/2.8 macro. It really... just depends on what I need THAT MOMENT more than a fav hardware combo.

    Naw, that's what the RB is for. Or my 8x10 field camera, set on hyperfocal distance with a 210 lens, looks like an oversized speed graphic.
