I'm actually quite happy with my venerable 10D, Sigma 18-50 EX and 50-500EX.

That said, a 1DMkIIN would be nice!  Smile Saw one in action... sounded like a machine gun!

...Oh and maybe some IS for the BIGMA.

What I'd also like to do is replace my 2x 21" SGI FD monitors with one of those Apple 30" Cinema displays.... O.M.G!!! How gorgeous is that?

Of course, none of this is likely to happen now that the missus is 20 weeks pregnant but one can still dream of that Euro Millions win!  Wink

I'd probably go for the Paul Gambacini stay-press high-five body.
The Carlos Vandango super wide angle sounds prima too.
A couple of those egg varoosh and slick back wellies.
Stick-on moustach and a sidewinder missile.
How about a few fweng turnips or a fadoink, although anything in the Autumn range would do.
A couple of pleated, yes pleated, double enders, in case it gets cold.
And a season ticket for Becks brewery.

For aviation it would be...

2x 1dmkiiN
1x 1Vhs

EF 15 F2.8
EF 16-35F2.8
EF 24-105F4LIS
EF 70-200LIS
EF 500F4LIS
EF 1.4x and 2x TC
1x 580ex

That is just for aviaiton, with the types of other shooting i do i would have to add 2x 5d's and some other prime lenses. Such as the 100F2.8 Macro, or the 200F1.8L or the 24F1.4L. My kit bag will never be complete, there is so much gear i can utilize with the style of shooting i have.

I still want one of those Hassy H2D and a Fuji GX617. Mmmmmmmmmm panoramic! Will have to make do with the hassy 501CM and Phase one P10 im gonna get.  Silly
