Equipment

Body

  • Nikon D80

Lenses

  • 28-70mm f/2.8 D
  • 70-300mm f/3.5-5.6 VR

Lighting

Bag

  • Nova 4 AW

Filters

  • 77mm Hoya Pro-1 (on the way)

What I want

  • 70-200mm f/2.8 VR - It’s a legend.
  • 180mm f/2.8 - As a first step towards the above lens - much lighter and cheaper.
  • 300mm f/4 - with a 1.7 teleconverter, a great outdoors combination.
  • A good macro lens - the new 105mm VR intriques me, but not my wallet.
  • A solid tripod with a ball head. Some of the Manfrotto/Bogen combinations at B&H look good.
  • An Alien Bee setup - ideally a couple AB400’s with the appropriate accessories
  • $3000 to buy all this stuff.
