...what equipment would you buy and how does it compare to what you have/had? I would have never bought an Olympus outfit. $4k less I wouldn't have bought a 40D either. $1.1k less I would have bought a 135L instead of the 70-200mm f/2.8 IS $800 less I would have bought a 14L instead of the 17-40L $400 more Basically, I'd have two 5Ds, a 14L, 24L, 50L, 85L and a 135L. I have one 5D and can't seem to find another, a 40D that died 15 days out of warranty, 17-40L, 50mm f/1.4, 100mm f/2.8 and a 70-200mm f/2.8 IS. $900 less I've sold a Canon 10-22, 28-135mm IS, 50mm f/1.8 $900 Less I easily could afford my dream kit had I never wasted any money on stuff I didn't need. That is a sad realization, but at least I understand what I need much better now. I probably could have squeezed in a 400mm f/2.8 IS for not too much more money.
