Wish List
« on: May 09, 2009, 07:11:37 PM »
Having just replied to the My Kit thread, I thought I'd start one asking what you would like to get next!

I'll start with a couple of bits.

EF300mm F/2.8L IS
EF135mm F/2L

Neither which are likely to be in my bag in the near future - unless the lottery coughs up  ;D

For the immediate future  would love a Nikon AF-S VR 70-200mm f/2.8 IF-ED but won't be able to afford it this millenium, so a Nikon AF-S VR 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 IF-ED will have to do instead but it still means saving for some time  :(

I'd like some talent.

But I'd never be able to afford it.  :(

As for stuff, I would like Adobe software to actually be priced so that mere humans could afford it. I would like a prime lens and a macro lens and a few SDM lenses, and a proper flashgun, and some lighting, and a tripod less than 50 years old, a camera bag less than 30 years old, a couple of battery grips, a set of filters, a decent A3 printer, a bigger monitor, and some other stuff I haven't thought of yet. Probably.

And world peace.

I personally think a lot of your wish list is over rated so dont feel bad. I have a 50mm prime & flashgun that rarely come out of the bag, adobe is probably great if I could be bothered to spend several years learning how it works otherwise the one that came with my camera covers my needs. The talent thing I could use.

My wish would be for a Bigma, but even if I could afford it I could not justify the expense as it would not be used very often.

Would'nt mind a Nikon 70-200mmvr - but the 70-300mmvr will have to do me for now. Quite fancy a really good macro lens - something like the Tamron 180mm.

For me I would replace my Sigma 530 with a Canon 580EXii and look to replace the Sigma 17-70 with a Canon L lens of the same range (if they made one :( ). To get either I would have to come out of retirement and earn some money or win the lottery ;)

On my wishlist at the moment is a good macro lens, something like the Canon 60mm EF-S f/2.8, I also wouldn't mind a battery grip and a second speedlite.

I bought an old all manual 50mm f1.7 lens on eBay for £12.00. It's so good I'm trying to save up for a 'real' modern 50mm lens with at least an auto aperture ring (not that bothered about autofocus to be honest) - my word they're pricey, even second hand.

That'll keep me going for a while.
