Santa brought me a 6D full frame camera with the 24-105 f/4 L lens and also an 85mm f/1.8 prime.

Unfortunately, I checked and he charged it all to MY Visa account!
Canon 6D; Canon Lenses: EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II; EF 24-105 f/4 L; EF 85 f/1.8; EF-S 17-55 f/2.8; Canon 1.4x Mk. III T.C.; Sigma Lens: 35mm f/1.4 "Art"

santa seems to be on a budget and cannot get FF yet (maybe have been too naughty   :-\)

but got 4 remote flash triggers/transmitter, flash stands, umbrella reflector and flash shoe holders.

Now have to read up on flash photography & maybe start the year with some low key portraitures.

Same kit but no prime + a 32GB card, hoya CP and 15L Loweprowe backpack.
Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

100mm 2.8 L, but lens is stuck on Santas ups sleigh and likely won't get to me until next week.
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

Santa got me a Canon 5D MKII, and Santa is thinking about getting me a 200mm F/2.8 L as a late gift but he needs to do a little more research on it.  What do you guys think of the 200mm F/2.8 L on a full frame DSLR, would it be good for outdoor portraits were space is not an issue?

I got a tri-axial spirit level for my current DSLRs... this one to be exact: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Camera-Hotshoe-Olympus-Panasonic-Cameras/dp/B001MBEPKM/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1356590046&sr=1-3

This is the first birthday/christmas I have not felt the need for a camera/lens upgrade. But I still needed to get something camera related :D

Zoom H1 and a 40" x 60" 5-in-1 reflector from ephoto.

I also increased my desktop RAM to 16GB (from 8GB) to speed up my video editing.

A new Pentax Q w 5-15mm zoom, 17-50mm f/2.8 Tamron in F-mount and some special FX equipment I can use in the studio.
Looking fwd to playing with it all.
I've got a big empty pocket waiting for that miniscule Q!  Now I'll have a fun gadget to play with instead of pecking away at a cell phone like a typical schmuck whenever I'm waiting for whatever.

Twin pro-B4s; neither "speedlights don't have enough power" nor "logistics" remain valid excuses...
