I had to think about this...  First there was what I 'wanted'...  And couldn't make up my mind.. Then I thought about what I needed... Then it became much clearer:

  • ThinkTank Photo Airport Security v2 Bag. Because I'm always pissing that I don't have a bag big enough to carry my big shoot/event gear.
  • Manfrotto Pro Backpack 50. Because using a rollerbag is a pain on many location shoots.
  • Zeiss 85mm f1.4. Love this lens. I love my Zeiss 50mm f1.4. But the 85mm is a notch higher up in every way. Even though I feel a million miles away from my subject.

Yup, two bags and a lens.... But thanks for asking..  It was fun putting my priorities in order   ;D

Hi Ricardo,

That is the kind of thought process I had hoped to  shoot the breeze with.

Incidentally I have the Airport Security V2 and it is a crazy good bag, but I drag it practically everywhere, I am on my third set of wheels, but on the rare occasions it will not work it has he emergency shoulder straps, awesome bag. I really really wish the International was a scaled down Security.
Never look down on anybody, unless you are helping them up.

I'd buy something that I didn't need so that I could have returned it for a refund in the new year and spent the money with more consideration.

1.8k could be spent on some interesting lenses. I'd get the L fisheye just for fun and maybe a 600ex-rt. Not sure if 1.8k is enough for those...


I would buy a gift for my wife, so she wouldn't not give me hard time when I'm ready for 600mm f4 ::)

Does it really work that way for you? No matter what I buy for my wife, she will be pissed if I get another lens.
EOS 5D Mark III + 8-15L + some boring L lenses + a 35mm Sigma...
