Very nice kit Frink!
How are you liking the 24mm f/1.4?
And why are you selling the 14-24mm? That happens to be my most favorite lens ever... but then again, I'm an arch photographer so it's also my most used lens.

You might want to try to unload the D700 quick since there is finally convincing word (and concrete signs) of an upcoming replacement.

edit:
I just noticed you also have the 16-35mm. That probably answers why your gonna sell the 14-24mm. Makes perfect sense now

I quit counting gadget bags in the 80's. I think I have enough to open a store. From old school Tenba and Domke to the latest Think Tank, Tenba and today I got in a Domke F-803 for the M 4/3 set up.

I won't even get into my wife's camera set ups. I don't know all of her gear. We have been freelance photogs since the early 80's.

I love the 24mm 1.4, but honestly the 28mm f2 AIS is 80$ of the optics for 10% of the price.

Just sold the D700 on FM, I'm pretty excited for the new D4 & D800. I might step up to a D4 if it looks to be a good package. If not I want a 70-200mm 2.8 VRII

14-24mm I got in a trade. I've had the 16-35 for over a year now and love it. I use filters a lot so the 14-24mm isn't too practical for me.

That's a lot of hardware you've got there. Is that RRS stuff?

Sir, I like your style. My camera looks like hell, plastic fading, pieces falling off, dust, screen is scratched to hell..... My 24-105 and 50 has melted chocolate on it.... Starting to hard to read the dials and some of the emblems are starting to fall off.... Damn good camera, doesn't let me down ever. She's not even a year old either with 23000 cycles

Oh don't forget about the mud. It's been there too.

DSLR noob here, got mine two weeks ago now and already taken it to four shows (antique and vintage farm shows and auctions. totally for own enjoyment, no profit motivation). learned a lot and learned how little I know.

setup:
Canon T1i
EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM w/hood and Hoya UV filter
EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

also have the 18-55 IS II kit lens but thats already boxed up and away. Only advantage was it was lite.

This weekend I'll try and pick up a uv filter and hood for the 70-300 as well as look for a lens case to store it in while wandering around. I have a lowpro case for storage but I don't want to carry it all day.

current purchase plans:
Looking for a new strap, already hate the canon one. Looking hard at the R strap.
"nifty 50"mm
tripod rig for book copying.

down the road a little:
Macro lens (liking the look of the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM and since its not pressing I can save for it)
wide angle lens (looking at the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM)
possibly a tamron or tenko 1.4 extender for the 70-300, we'll see, its not a big priority

After hitting two shows with the kit lens I learned a lot about what i needed (including that I don't have steady hands) and knew I wanted a more versatile lens and since I am outside, in the dust and at a variety of distances it was going to be an all purpose zoom. I liked the L's but the price was just too much at this stage and the longer minimum focal point was a turn off. the 15-85 fit the bill in a lot of ways with good versatility, IS and the price was affordable on my current budget. Everyone says its all about the lenses and I see why. went to two more shows with this lens last weekend and was really happy with it. Can't say they look like the glossy perfect photo's some of you have but they look a lot cleaner then anything i'd ever shot before.

I also was wanting a telephoto as number 2 item on my list, but was putting it off til I took care of some other projects so REALLY hadn't planned to have one yet. Had been looking hard at the 70-300, 70-200 4L (wasn't feeling the no IS in my price range and the white,) ), and was starting to look at some of the other brands to see what might be offered when this 70-300 popped up for a price I couldn't turn down, brand new as a kit lens from a guy who only likes primes. Not as happy with it as the 15-85 so far but for right now it will be an ok learning lens. The test pictures I've done so far haven't been as sharp I felt as the 15-85 just wandering around the yard. For now it will work, but down the line I think the upgrade bug might bite on this one but we'll see once I use it some.

been doing a lot of reading, now I just need to start doing.
