3 bodies, 6 lenses, 2 leather rolling camera bags in just over 12 months- is there any help out there? Already plotting my next body and lens purchases....

I have been a member of bag of the month club and nearly joined lens of the month club.  Now I am downsizing my closest - general rule is that I sell 2 items for every item I buy.  At least that is the plan.

That strategy works - but only in the beginning  ;) ::) :o

You need an inheritance, and an inpatient 12 step program!

Yikes!

I am so happy everyone has been having fun with this thread :)

Yes, I just placed an order for another lens and decided on the 35L over the Siggy. If not happy I can make an exchange. Anyone who has used both and wants to weigh in is welcome. What's next? 600-rt to replace the 580 ex ii s?

Depends on how you shoot.  The 600EX-RT is a great flash, of course, but the main reason to get it is for the RF capability.  UPS is delivering my second 600EX-RT and an ST-E3-RT to me today.   :)

I sometimes shoot with only Speedlites, sometimes also add a monolight.  I've been using PocketWizards for triggering because they can fire the blended setup (I had a pair of 430EX II's that I just sold).  But the simplicity of the Canon-only system is attractive when using just Speedlites.  I plan to try it with the monolight optically-slaved, and if that works for the blended system, great!

I have held off buying equipment but traveling a lot, 2 trips to Africa last year and another 2 this year.  Now I want to upgrade equipment too.  Though rule for upgrades is I take less family $ (I am now retired) for equipment so I am thinning my equipment (lens and bags).

I think there is hope for us - or I am doooommeeddddd.....

I just bought a 70-200mm f/2.8L IS mkii over the weekend... which now gives me a 60D body, a 50mm f/1.4, a 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro, a 24-105mm f/4L IS, and a Rokinon 8mm f/3.5 fisheye.  And I haven't taken a photo in 2 weeks.  So why have all the gear if I'm not actually wearing out the shutter. 
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

Y'all keep canon in business for me. It's taking me some time but I'm sure to join the abusive camera purchasing lifestyle sometime soon.

I wonder why suddenly the OP deleted her ID, she was a great contributor to the forum.
