A new 17-40L and so far it hasn't come off my 5D2.  I can't wait for some HDR photo ops.  Cold and rainy is not ideal for me here in NJ.

Santa was much better than expected.  He brought me Lightroom 4, a 430 EXII and a 50mm 1.4  :) So far I'm having a blast with the new lens.

...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 just got that lens and all I can say is that you'll love it. Exceptional AF speed, very sharp, physically not very big as far as a 200 goes. I got a mint copy on eBay for $460.

Mrs. Claus got me:
Oben AC-2310L tripod with lateral center column
EZ-Foto arca-swiss ball head
Canon E2 hand strap

I may also have snuck a few stocking stuffers in on my own:
sunwayfoto arca plate
desmond arca clamp
no name 11" magic arm
no name flat bracket

Looking to get creative with a customizable flash bracket/DIY ringflash for portraits and macro.  Trying to keep the gear acquisition syndrome in check by focusing on the pictures rather than the camera/lenses.

Got Samyang 35mm and 85mm T1.5 Cine Primes. Fantastic lenses.
A bunch of ND filters ranging from ND2 - ND8
And a new Tilta Follow Focus (surprisingly good quality for the price they are)

Nice little haul.

ha, ha....that is pretty close to the truth!  Actually, I just wanted to get some photos taken of me, once in a while.  Now there should be no excuses!

I was planning on purchasing them Canon cameras, but Adorama had some sweet deals on Nikon on Black Friday, which I couldn't pass up!
