    If you had to choose one body and lens and that was all you could use forever, what would it be?

    Hmmm

    one camera I could do. One lens? That's a bit harder.

    EOS 1Ds MkIII

    lens? Hmm...
    70-200 2.8 IS, I guess...though it is a little lacking on the short end...

    I really like my Leica III. I'd like a faster lens, so maybe the 50mm f1 Noctilux?

    D300 + 18-200mm.

    Might as well be flexible, right?

    Film = Nikon F3 & 50mm f/1.4
    Digital = Nikon D3 & 24-70 f/2.8

    Forever is a long time......

    It occurred to me that the Noctilux is an M-series lens, so I'll modify my pick to a Leica M6 with the Noctilux f1.

    Rollei 6008 Integral w/ the Zeiss 110mm f/2.

    I would have an orgasm if I could afford that combo, let alone use it for the rest of my life.

    If I had to choose one camera for good, I'd get an EOS-3 with a EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM lens and shoot E100vs.
