..... What are they? And why this choice?
Just a bit of a not to serious thread..
As of right now.
Canon 500mm F4
Canon 70-200 F2.8 IS L II
I shoot mainly wildlife so I use the 500mm 98% of the time and when it's not on the camera my 70-200 F4 is.
The only thing I'd change is the speed of my 70-200......that is until the 7D MKIII comes out.
If I stuck with a full frame camera, I guess it'd have to be the D850, the 105 F1.4, and the 20 F1.8. Note, I don't have any of those items currently, haha.
I'd get a lot of mileage out of that...but I think I'd also seriously consider a smaller body camera with the equivalents.
Easy for me (and probably no surprise )
Pentax K1000, 50mm 1.7, 28mm...can't remember the f-stop. I might want a different 28 than the one I have anyway.
Why? This combo has served me for 20+ years already. Plus, giving up the other cameras in my collection would be hard, but losing that camera would be like losing a finger or a little piece of my soul.
Not possible at this time. My AE-1 has better glass. But my EOS650 has better close glass.

That's just crazy talk.
I'd chose a hot 24-year old chick. With glasses.
Canon 5Dmkiv, Canon 16-35mm f4 L is and a Sigma 150-600 sport.
A camera body wouldn't get you arrested for kidnapping, though.
For me, that would be a 1Dx mk II with a 400mm f/2.8 and a 70-200mm f/2.8 II. The why would be sports and portraits, I could make that work.
Without having to lay out any cash (OP is giving me the gear): D850, AFS 24-70/2.8, AFS 200-400/4.
Picking from what I already have, I can't do it: D750, AF 24/2.8, AF 50/1.8, AIS 105/4 Micro (my F90S lens combo for a few years).
I am a committed crop sensor guy due to size and weight. I have a Nikon D5200 now, but my dream combination would be the Nikon D500 with a Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm f2.8-4E and a Nikon 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S ED DX. It would be significantly larger than my current setup, but still manageable.
I would go with the 24 year old chick with glasses but my wife would kill me.
