Most of my kit was bought at the same time.

With the help of Steve i'd decided what i wanted and just got it.

10D/Grip/Sigma 28-70 f2.8-4/512mb Fuji CF [lens sold] Park Cameras
17-40 f4L UR Galaxy, ebay.
50mm f1.8 7Dayshop
70-200 f4L 7Dayshop
580EX 7Dayshop
Kenko 1.4x pro300 ChinaArts, ebay
3xBP511 blue2usb, ebay
Teleplus extension tubes, 2nd hand OcUK
Stofen Diffuser Warehouse express.
LowePro MicroTrekker Warehouse express.

Don't really want to count up how much i spend either, but got some good bargains. If you're worried about importing via ebay 7dayshop are often nearly as cheap.
