You are much more talented than me. Lens looks cool, I am envious! However, I did get a new camera strap this week, so life is good.

23. Oh, I get out when I can

Not so much right now, a few health issues for the wife, so the focus is elsewhere at the moment. Time will come around again, so I will enjoy those posted along the way.

13. 500mm F4.0

 

It's used,, which along time ago I figured I would not buy lenses new b/c of the price. I saved about 5k buying used.
The body is what I need to upgrade on. I mostly use a first gen. 5d and once in awhile 3d mk3 b/c of the 10-fps

16. I have that 5D also.

I use it for my walking-around camera when I want full frame because it's so light. I need a cart to carry the Mark III.

18. I'm on the road a lot and I use an old grey body 30d? ,, cost almost

 

a 1k bad in the day ,, before the y2k I think? or that could have been a nikon I picked up on cape cod?? 30d I think was after 2000.
It's light and durable, has a kit lens and fits into my soft briefcase.

Always have the light to your back.
