    Which body would you get and what lenses?

    Hey Mike while I do agree with your post I think it would have been alot easier to just say "all of them".

    2x D3's
    2x D300's


    2x all

    12-24DX
    17-55 f/2.8DX
    10.5mmDX
    14-24
    16 fisheye
    24-70
    50mm f/1.4
    70-200 VR
    200 f/2
    300 f/2.8
    200-400 f/4
    400/500/600VR's
    and a few 1.4 TC's

    Oh yeah, and about 20 SB-800's w/ pocket wizards when I want to nuke the whole football field. And if the SU-800 will work at those distances, than that would be BETTER because i'd be able to control what the strobes are doing right from my camera!

    That would be a balls-to-the-wall set up
