    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.

    I have no desire for a different camera, but I guess I'd either pick another D7000 for a backup body or a D800--but I really don't especially want a full-frame, so probably just stick with the D7000.

    Lenses: Nikon 300 f/2.8 VRii, 600 f/4, 14-24 f/2.8

    (That all assumes that you also still HAVE what you already have, and since the starting premise is winning a contest, it's not like they'd take what you own now! I'm happy with my current macro lens, so I'd go for more reach, better quality and a wider angle.)

    I'd have their most expensive camera plus 3 copies of their most expensive lens, sell them on, buy a 1DX, Sigma 35mm, 85L and 135L and pocket the difference :p
