    Lets take a situation where you won a contest of the largest photography shop in the world.
    This shop holds all the current cameras, lens and accessories being made in the world.
    You can choose one camera and 3 lenses.....so what would those be ?

    You cant get the camera+lenses and sell them, the camera and lenses are for you to be used and not to be sold and make money.

    For my needs, I'd take a mark iii, 35L, 100L, and a 45mm tilt shift.

    I already own two of those, though.

    I'd probably get the Alpa 12FPS, and the Canon 24,45,and 90 tilt/shift lenses, and a ridiculous Phase back....and dink around with that...

    The New ALPA 12 FPS

    I am pretty content with my camera, but I would take a tilt-shift lens or a super telephoto because those are two that I would never purchase myself.
