Current DSLR Camera(s): Nikon D60
Favorite Lens(es): 55-200 and a 18-55 want a large general purpose lens though
Flash: SB-600 speed flash
Bag: a Nikon carry bag, a hard-side lockable case, and a LowePro backpack
Tripod: I have 4 tripods, various sizes
Other Accessories?: 1 fisheye lens attachment, 1 2X zoom lens attachment, 1 set of light filters (UV, Flourescent, etc), 1 set of colored filters (red, blue, green, etc), 1 car charger, 2 other chargers, 3 different memory cards, 2 card readers, 2 different neck straps, 1 flash diffuser, 1 collapsible lens shade and 1 hard lens shade

I think that covers most of it anyway!

Current DSLR Camera(s): Nikon D90
Favorite Lens(es): Nikon 18-105mm VR; Nikon 55-200mm VR; Nikon 70-300mm (not my lens but I use it on my body)
Flash: Nikon SB-400
Bag: Lowepro Stealth Reporter
Tripod: not sure, it's about 30 years old (dad gave it to me b/c he no longer uses his SLR)
Other Accessories?: UV filters for each lens, flash diffuser, Ranyox 150 macro adaptor (LOVE IT!), remote shutter releases, cables, card readers, cards, lens hoods, lens covers, etc.

Best Bang for the Buck (adding this category!)
* the Raynox 150 macro adapter, only $50 and fits on all my lenses (even my old point-and-shoot), amazingly sharp
* I once bought a more expensive Sandisk memory card and it came with a program called RescuePRO. Since then I've had many instances of my cards becoming corrupt or unreadable and I've *never* not been able to recover my photos with RescuePRO
* SB-400, it's the cheapest external Nikon flash and has no options other than on/off and which angle to point it but even this cheap flash is 100 times better than the pop-up flash on the body

Anybody know anything about full frame (sensor is same size as 35mm film) DSLRs? I have a collection of great old Zeiss lenses and there is an adapter available for Canon (Yashica/Contax to Canon) that supposedly works quite well. I just don't want vignetting or have to calculate image size. The few full frame cameras I've seen are very very expensive. I'm wondering if I'm not aware of a model that's full frame, yet reasonably priced.

check out B&H photo and adorama. I got my 5D from B&H in their used gear department. they apply a rating system to all their used gear so you can get a good one. keep checking with them too, as they seem to add new (used) things frequently.

the 5D classic seems to hold the general consensus vote for best all around full frame thus far. even compared to the newer models.

I've been very pleased with mine. I do have some vignetting when I use the 50mm but that's only when wide open.

Thanks for the info! I'll keep an eye out there.
