Re: what gear have you bought in the last year

If you had posted this at Easter I could have listed my D700, the 14-24 f2.8 and the 24-70 f2.8 Nikkors.

As it is now June, I can only put in the four receiver YongNuo RF 602 set

Re: what gear have you bought in the last year

Hmmm, funny I've not gone in for the more expensive items (and just as I typed that I remembered I bought a spyder elite a couple of weeks ago) I've gone for mainly smaller items - National Geographic Ng 3030 Camera Strap, which can clip onto my new(ish) naneu adventure backpack, a Cokin wallet for P Series filters and an optech grip strap . Got an adapter for my camera to use on a microscope, a T mount adapter oh and I got a microscope too........ darn its all adding up now. Heck also got a canon SLR for a bit of film fun which I've also just remembered. Hope the Mrs does not read this

Re: what gear have you bought in the last year

I've been having treatment for a detached retina since January so can't use a viewfinder - I sold my 5D and 40D while the going was good and bought this. If my eye fully recovers I'll be in the market for a DSLR so have kept my lenses.

Fujifilm Finepix HS20EXR

Re: what gear have you bought in the last year

Not much camera equipment bought in the last 12 months as I have been waiting for some big Nikon announcements that never arrived, so I have some must spend funds burning a hole im my pocket and lots of stuff to sell or trade in. Did finally get a Samsung EX1 to replace my GX100 as my compact and I have picked up a lot of modular belt/body worn carrying kit than I am starting to love if I can get over the Tackleberry feeling.

Re: what gear have you bought in the last year

I bought my Nikon D700 with a 24-70 f/2.8 ED lens.

I also bought a Nikon Coolpix P7000.

Love them both although the P7000 is currently with Nikon for repair/recall

Re: what gear have you bought in the last year

This year

Just a filter. - One of those ND faders.

Last year

A Hoya IR filter - then a converted IR 20D.

I don't really think I need anything else. Other than a 8-200 mm zoom lens with IS and top optics right through...oh and a 800mm F5.6 Lens with a porter to carry it for me. (and the money to buy)

Re: what gear have you bought in the last year

Not bought much photographic as I bought a brand new powerful PC and a lovely new monitor so that used up all the pennies. I did buy a 2-8x ND filter which is superb and worth every penny (just over £40 from 7dayshop) so guess that is my token gesture for this year LOL.

Re: what gear have you bought in the last year

I guess my 500 tops the list. Then there's the bag to carry it (thanks, Simpbow! ) and a tripod-converts-to-a-monopod to hold it. Elsewhere, there's the G11 with adapter for filters with which I'm well pleased. More recently, the studio lights which are getting good useage. And lets not forget the dog bed and various harnesses and leads - well, Dog does provide me with landscape shots that have something a little different from the norm!

Next? Kind of hankering after the Canon 100mm IS but will await reviews of the Sigma 150mm OS as the non-OS version beats the non-IS version!

Re: what gear have you bought in the last year

Just got into photography, so everything has been bought in the last year.

Got my Canon 450D + 18-55mm zoom lens, battery grip, spare batteries etc in Octpber last year. Then got my Canon 75-300mm IS USM earlier this year. Waiting for my Canon 60mm Macro lens to be delivered, either tomorrow or friday. Then that will be it for a while.

Probably try get a decent flash, or ringflash next, but will be a while away yet.

Re: what gear have you bought in the last year

I've bought a D300S, SB-900 flashgun, Sigma 17-70mm OS lens and a Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod and joystick head thingy. Now having to do a load of overtime to pay for it all so not getting many chances to put it all to good use

Next purchase, hopefully a Nikon 18-200mm for travelling. I feel more overtime coming on!

Last year I bought a 50mm f1.2, some flash triggers & a receiver & a 430 speedlight as a second unit. No plans for any new equipment this year though.
