    What's at the top of your wish list?

    As per the thread title, what photographic item is currently sitting at the top of your wish list?

    For me, it's the Canon 35mm f1.4 L. Yes, I already own the 35mm f2 and it's a pretty good performer for such a cheap lens, but I'm really, really wanting the L version. I don't have a solid, logical reason for wanting it other than I like the focal length and I love shooting wide, wide open. Wish lists don't have to be based on logic anyway, right?

    So what is everyone else pining for at present?
    Canon 5D MkII | Canon 7D
    Various prime and zoom lenses

    good question

    I think either a Nikon 85 1.4 or a 14-24. Neither of which I absolutely need or can currently afford to pay for ourt of my photography accumulated fund/deficit account

    I am going to buy an ultra wide lens next Canon 10 - 22. I am in the fortunate/unfortunate (for my bank balance) position of being able to walk into the doors of B & H in three weeks. I have a list of smaller purchases to make as well as the new lens

    I actually want Firewire 800 to come back into higher end camera bodies, and maybe Thunderbolt too when more support becomes available, or USB3 as a last resort. Shooting tethered for work with USB2 is such a draggggggg

    Lee ten-stop ND filter.

    I also need a replacement Lee filter holder, as the ocean has ruined the spring in my existing holder, meaning that it's liable to fall off the adapter ring.

    Yes, my photography account has come up recently thanks to some paid work, but is still in the red overall.

    Not sure where you stand on 3rd party lenses, but the Sigma 85 1.4 is getting some good reviews over on FM. Not sure how the pricing compares, but it might be worth a look.

    Yeah, go the full-frame goodness! I'd be happy to pick up a 5D classic in good condition for walkaround use and backup for my MkII.

    I think I'd get myself in a lot of trouble at B&H. Have fun and be careful!

    Depends if I'm talking about my not-even-in-my-wildest-dreams wish list, or my maybe-someday-but-not-right-now wish list, or my not-very-exciting-but-will-probably-be-my-next-purchase wish list. In above wish list order they would be Nikkor 400mm f/2.8, Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 (or maybe Nikkor 24mm f/1.4), Nikkor TC-20E III (teleconverter)




    Cheers.

    I'd settle for a wife that doesn't require a 10 page (not including illustrations) written submission justifying every photographic equipment purchase I make...

    I wonder if they have shopping trollies?

    Next on my shopping list will probably be a 100mm wide slot filter holder and 1, 2 and 3-stop hard grads in 100x150 size for use with my Nikkor 10-24mm zoom so I can use multiple filters without vignetting. I have a lens repair (dropped lens no more focus) in the way of that.

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself.
