    Canon AE-1 with four different lenses that I'd love to trade up for a Digital SLR.
    An Albinar 28-80mm Macro zoom lens
    Focal 80-200mm zoom lens
    Focal 135mm telephoto lens
    and the standard Canon 50mm lens that came with the AE-1

    Then theres my Dad's old camera

    A Minolta Hi-Matic 7s

    Not sure they are worth much though.

    I have my sights pointing to a Mamiya 645 Pro. We'll see if I'll manage to add it to the list. If the Leica is sold, I'll definitely grab it.

    - Canon AE-1 with the standard 50mm lens
    - Vivitar 70-210mm f/4.5 Macro Zoom lens that I bought second-hand, for the AE-1 as a student
    - Canon EOS 300 (the US model has another name), an affordable film SLR that I used quite a lot, with it's stock 28-80mm lens
    - Sigma 100-300mm Macro lens, for the 300, good cheap lens, but for some reason doesn't work with:
    - Canon EOS 10D - bought as a body only, at a VERY reduced price, because it was part of a batch that was recalled for having the wrong firmware from the factory, (or so I was told), but now it works fine.
    - Sigma 18-200mm EF-S, i.e. for the smaller digital Canon sensors only, not compatible with the 300
    - A new Sunpack flash for the 10D, that I haven't used yet...

    Nothing is for sale... there is also a Macro lens for the AE-1 that my father has somewhere, but I believe the Vivitar... covers its focal length.

    Finally, my wife has an EOS 300 identical to mine, bought before we met, with the same 28-80mm lens, which would be the one I would choose to use, because mine is acting up - I think the curtain is at fault, not openning every 3-4 frames or so. I tried getting it serviced, but was quoted an outrageous price, so I decided to retire it.

    Some of these things are, upon reflection, wrong choices. I wish I had gotten the Canon 18-200mm lens instead of the Sigma, which is not stabilized...

    My current equipment is as follows.
    Canon 40D DSLR camera
    Canon EF-S 18-200 IS f/3.5-5.6
    Canon EF-S1 0-22 f/3.5-4.5
    Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 (prime)
    Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 (prime)
    Canon 430EXII Speedlight flash
    I also have a selection of filters, extra batteries, extra compact flash cards, lens hoods, and so on.
    I have had the Canon EF 18-55 IS f/3.5-5.6, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 (prime) and a Sigma 70-300 f/4-5.6 but those lenses have been traded in on other lenses.

    For creative shots I love the 50mm prime and 10-22. The 18-200 is my carry around lens and it really is a good lens for me.

    I have a wish list (as with firearms) but I do want a longer zoom with IS and a macro lens (probably the Canon 100mm macro)

    Hunter, how is the 18-200 in terms of light balance, at the full 200mm? My Sigma really suffers there, although I've managed to use some editing to minimize the effect somewhat, with some shots.

    Here is a shot I took at 178mm with the 18-200.

    I did very little post on the jpeg.
    Many say the lens is not a good lens because of such a large focal length range but for me it seems to do just fine.
    I will continue to use the lens regardless of what others say to me.

    That's a nice shot... I wish I'd taken more pictures of our pet Goose, who is now in the big henhouse in the sky...

    As a carry-around, photo-opportunity lens, the 18-200 is hard to beat... I just wish I had a bit more foresight when I was buying, but I was a student on a tight budget...

    I have a fellow Canon-equipped buddy that has a really neat Sigma EF-S 200-500mm Monster. Much better quality than my 18-200, perfect light balance all the way to the corners... but not IS. Taking good pictures at full zoom always involves a tripod AND timed release... but it's still quite usable!
