    I do not own a lot of gear yet. Just a meager D40, with 18-55mm kit, my wonderful christmas gift from my wife, slick pro 340qf, and my tablet. Hopefully soon, I will finally have enough saved up for my D800, (going full frame. Woot) then piece the rest of these together 35mm 1.4, 85mm 1.4, that gorgeous 24-70mm 2.8 and the 70-200mm 2.8, a Surface pro tablet, SB900, reflector, graduated filters for my sunset/sunrise shots, Phottix Atlas II… cest la vie.

    I’m a work from home dad so my gear has to be practical and multi functional… On one side I’d throw my Canon 5dIII, 70-200, 24-70, and 16-35. On the other side I’d put diapers, wipes, sippy cups, and snacks. Occasionally I might even throw a sleeping child over the top of the back pack and strap them down… that way I can keep my hands free to shoot while we’re out hiking! Thank goodness for those big cushy shoulder straps!!!
