    Sharra, I’m a tad bit jealous of how many lenses you have! I’d love to have as extensive of a collection as that someday. I shoot Canon but it looks like you have a good setup.

    Has anyone heard of reviews on the 6D that recently came out? I have heard from a few pros that Canon seriously downgraded their full-frame line with it compared to the 5Diii and that it’s not worth it.

    You’re right, having a crop sensor body can come in handy for some things. Since my only prime lens is 35mm, it works better as a normal-range prime on my crop sensor bodies than my full-frame due to the 1.6x factor. The main downfall of the Rebel is it’s poor low-light performance and slightly slower autofocus. It does have the capability to get some great shots though, in my experiences.

    Kimera, I’m kind of in the same boat as you…

    Nikon D3000
    Nikon D50 (I pawned this camera for a little bit and when I took it out of pawn, the thumbwheel that adjusts that aperture and shutter speed was broken and it now works no better than a point and shoot. I don’t know if I should count this.)
    Nikkor 50mm 1.8
    Nikkor 35mm 1.8 DX
    Nikkor 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 (the kit lens)
    Tamron 18-5mm 3.5-6.3
    Nikon SB-400 flash (it’s compact, only tilts to 90 degrees, and doesn’t swivel)
    Yongnuo YN560II speedlight

    I’ve been dying to go full-frame (and I’ve been eying the Nikon D600), but I know I should invest in lenses first, so my wish list is a 85mm 1.8 or 1.4 and a 24-70 2.8.

    Browneyedgirl: The lenses are an investment over several years as finances have dictated, but I’m happy with what I have. Bodies come and go, but quality glass can last a lifetime, as I’m sure you already know. I don’t proclaim to be a pro and I don’t have a business since software development is my main source of income, but I’d like to think I can take more consistent photos as opposed to some that would end up here. I guess I’d call myself a highly skilled amateur. 🙂 Having those lenses lets me experiment with everything from portraits to sports to landscape/nature to macro, etc. I haven’t really decided what genre interests me most, but I’m leaning towards landscapes and nature being fairly close to the mountains where I am.

    Obviously, I’m a Nikon gal, so I can’t really comment on the Canon 6D. But I’d suspect that’s Canon’s answer to put full-frame into the hands of the budget-conscious enthusiast, much like Nikon is marketing the D600, since they are similarly priced, but I could be wrong about that though…

    to “I hate fauxtograpy”  .. my pleasure.   🙂

    After reading others’ extensive kits, I realize WHY I have so little gear: I don’t drive.

    What fun I’d have with lugging such riches on the bus.

    high five, to being the most pathetic photographers in this thread!!  Confession: I haven’t even tried to learn the bus system here, and I walk everywhere I need to go lol So it’s a camera body and a couple lenses for me.  Just wait until I get that tripod!  lol I’ll be looking legit 😉

    Canon 500d also canon 7d ( which is away being repaired)

    love my canon 50mm 1.8,also sigma 17-70mm,in the process of saving for the canon 24-70 2.8 mk2.( first massive lens purchase).

    Sometime will save for a 85mm 1.8 and also the 70-200 f2.8 is…its a bloody expensive thing photography.

    also have a canon 430 ex mk2 speedlite which i mainly use for stuff  like parties or any wedding photos i take,as most of the time lighting is awful and it brings images to life a bit.

    Depends on the occasion.  My main Digital setup is as follows:

    D90 body
    D70 (old, backup)
    Tokina 12-24 f4 AF
    Nikon 35mm f1.8 AF-S
    Nikon 85mm f1.8 AF
    Nikon 300mm f4 AF
    Nikon SB-600

    Usually, I pack around my Canon PowerShot S100, which is a spectacular little thing

    Sometimes, I go on Film only trips.  I usually take either my:

    Yashica 12 (6×6 TLR)

    or my:

    Minolta X-370
    MD Rokkor 28mm f2.8
    MD Rokkor 45mm f2
    MC Rokkor PF 135mm f2.8

    And often, I take just my Olympus XA, which is not much bigger than the S100, and is at least as awesome.

    I also have, and occasionally use:

    Nikon F2 Photomic w/50mm f1.4 Nikkor lens (was my grandfather’s – more of a keepsake than a workhorse to me.  Still, it begs to be shot. It was my main camera from 2004-2007)
    Nikon FG with 50mm f1.8 AI Nikkor Lens (and the AF lenses listed above)
    Nikon N55
    Canon EOS-650 with some crappy discount-brand 28-80mm f4-5.6
    Canon AE-1 Program with Canon 50mm f1.8 lens
    Pentax K1000 with Sears 28mm f2.8 Macro and Vivitar 28-80mm f4 lens
    Fujica AX-5 with Fujinon 50mm f1.9 (I think) lens
    A couple of Canon SureShots.
