    All I want for Xmas is MY 2 FRONT TEETH! (…and maybe a new 85L lens!!)

  • Sebastien Prune

    As a donkey or a mule to handle all my stuff when I go shooting in the wild is not an item, I would definitely love to get a 3 axis robotic tripod head or a motorized camera slider (and another donkey to move it) :)

  • Ahmad Fakhrurrazi Bidin

    would love to have Canon MPE-65 macro lens

  • Tomas

    The number one object on my christmas list would be a Canon 24-105 F4 lens

  • Tomáš Ťaptík

    old Canon 5D mark I … or Tokina 11-16 for my current 400D :)

  • Undine

    Number one spot would be a nikon prime lense 85 mm, f1/8. That’d be sweet.

  • Jolinne

    Nikon’s 8-400mm

    top would be an EF 70-200mm f2.8..

  • Jessica Tanzer Conroy

    ALL I can wish for is to fulfill my husband’s wish of a Cannon Telephoto lens, a 16mm lens, a titanium tripod and a good looking bag for him to carry it all to work. He is everything I have ever wished for and more.

  • MriIze

    A filmscanner!

  • Jefton Sungkar

  • Vincent Wang

    For photography related I would like a GorillaPod, 5D Mark III (to replace my T1i) or a GoPro Hero3. Though above all, healthy and happiness. For the world to be more at peace, for people to enjoy life and be happy with what they already have.

  • Claudiu Petruse

    Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM

  • Ron Gage

    The item at the top of my list is a 24-70 f2.8 lens – something that will fit my Canon XSi. While I would love to get a newer/better camera body like a 5D MKiii, I think I would get more mileage out of better glass first.

  • André Bianchini
