    ...for your kind of photography. Hobby stuff, not pro.

    Assume you have all the incidentals like batteries, camera bag, memory cards, and a pocket tripod.

    1) SLR body (I like Pentax, w/ body integral anti-shake)
    2) Wide/normal/short tele zoom lens (18-55 kit lens is fine)
    3) Bounce flash (top-of-the-line from Pentax)
    4) Compact, high-end point & shoot camera (I like my Canon S90)
    5) Telephoto zoom lens. Something in the 55-200 range.

    This is just for fun, to see how different peoples' choices pan out.

    Top 5 ... Top 2 are my eyes and my brain although you're probably not asking about that. Next are the camera body and 2 lenses. I only have 3 pieces of equipment. Wish I had a macro lens.

    Did most of my shooting years ago without a tripod, do own one but never used it much. Flash was only used for indoor shots, camera body has one in it today.
