Let's hear from all you A.net contributors out there, amateurs and pros alike. What kind of equipment and film do you primarily use and how do you carry it around?

Minolta Maxxum 7
Tokina AF 28-80mm f2.8 ATX-Pro
Minolta Maxxum AF 50mm f2.8 Macro
Tamron AF 75-300mm f4-5.6
Tiffen Filters
Sunpak 66oi UT tripod
Lowepro Microtrekker 100 w/ Street & Field accessories
Mostly shoot w/ Fuji Provia 100

This humble system totally suits my needs for everything from aviation to landscapes and nature.

Since a lot of us are constantly changinf our gear, it is good to have a thread like this to see who is doing what.

I am currently on.....

Canon EOS 10D
Canon 70-200 F4 L
Sigma 170-500 F5.0-5.6 APO
Sigma 17-35 F2.8-4.0 EX HSM


The 170-500 is actually rated at F5.6-6.3, but with the 10D set to 1/3 stop increments, I get F5.0-5.6.

The 17-35 is new and I have not used it for aviation yet. It is mainly used as my travel lens.

I also still have my EOS30 and Canon FS4000 scanner with Sensia & Provia waiting patiently in the wings.

Regards,
Craig.

I just got a Canon Elan 7E (with battery pack) to replace my rebel. I love it so far, but kind of regret not getting a digital body instead. For lenses, I have 2 Sigma EXs: a 24mm, and a 105mm. These are great, but the lens that still gets the most use is a horrible Quantaray 70-300. I have been meaning to get a nice 70-200 for a long time now to replace this.

Nothing to brag about here. I shoot with an old second-hand D30 using a plain Canon 75-300 lens (the cheap one), plus I have a low-end 28-90 lens and a Vivitar (!) 17-35 cheap lens and I own a $19 tripod from Wal-Mart and a camera bag, plus a MindStor digital wallet which isnt even made anymore and one cf card.

that's it.

Oh yeah, and it takes decent pictures too.
