Er that would be $30,000, not $10,000

50 1.4
135L

4x 600RT

Doesn't need to be new stuff. Refurbished is fine.

Hmm. If I had ten grand. Well, ignoring the "jack of all trades" bit, I'd buy this:

FLI ProLine 16803 CCD

One of the best Astro CCD imagers on the market, used by the masters. :P

For an actual camera setup, from scratch...I don't think I could buy what I need with a "mere" $10,000:

Canon 1D X
Canon 5D III
Canon EF 600mm f/4 L II
Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 L II
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L II
Canon EF 85mm f/1.2
Canon EF 50mm f/1.2
Canon EF 8-15mm
Canon TS-E 24mm
Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5x Zoom Macro

That would be my ideal kit. It's...WAY more than ten grand...more like FIFTY GRAND.

??? :-\ :(

I have really...I mean....REALLY...expensive hobbies....  :o

Look at it this way, cheaper than collecting cars or yacht racing.   Or are those your other hobbies?   :o

Hmm, from scratch you say?

5D mk III - 3500
24-70 mk II - 2300
70-200 IS mk II - 2500

and maybeee Sony RX1 or some fast prime probably sigma 35mm or sigma 50mm

That would be my starting point too! 

5D mk III - 3500
24-70 mk II - 2300
70-200 IS mk II - 2500

and there is room for a few 600 RT flashes and an umbrella or two. 

That's all that is really needed, maybe the two mark III extenders, if they were into wildlife or field sports like soccer.

I have about 10k in gear... And I'm not sure I WANT anything other than what I have...

It I'd shop strange... you slowly start buying gear and one day your gear is more expensive than your first car. 
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

For Old man/---Sexy Old man not  Dirty Old man like me :
$ 10,000 US Dollars =
1)  $ 380 US Dollars = Body of Canon EOS-M and EF to EF-M  Lens adapter.
2) $ 8,000 US Dollars = 600mm MK I
3) $ 400 US Dollars = Heavey tripods, and good Ball Head
4) And the last $ 1,220 = get the hotel room for 4 days at the 8 Th. Floor, at the the South Carolina Beach ( Mytle Beach), Sit on the Balcony of  the room, With Red Wine and Great Foods---Set up the Camera on Heavy Tripods, and Shoot the beautiful Girls on the beach from the balcony of the room---With out her Big and strong boy friends to beat me up.
Ha, Ha, Ha.

Dear friend Surapon. I think you've found a great way to spend $ 10,000. You have a beautiful photo of bikini, but here in Brazil bikinis are smaller, and their asses are bigger. On the other hand, remember that Thai wives take revenge from her husband cutting off an important part of his body.

Easy, but for a change of pace, not with Canon ..

$6k on a used Phase One P25 with a 645 body and 80mm kit lens
$2k on 2x Einstein's with CyberCommanders
$1k on a used 105-210mm Mamiya 645 lens
$1k on a tripod/head combo

If I wanted to be more landscapey, I'd swap the extra lens and strobes with a basic Cambo setup that I can shift.

…and then one day, you buy a single lens that is more expsnsive than your first car.   ;)
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Yup, and if I can stretch the budget just a bit, I'd add the Tamron 150-600 and the new Sigma Art 50 1.4.

Well, let me fill in a few holes. Here is my "other" hobby (still photography...just a much more complex form: astrophotography). My ideal rig would be:

10Micron GM2000HPS: $20,850
PlaneWave 20" CDK: $32,500
FLI Proline 16801 Mono CCD - 65mm, Grade 1: $27,000

Then you have all the various accessories....robotic filter wheels, robotic focusers, robotic field rotators, off-axis guiders, etc. To use all this equipment, you need to build an observatory for it (it is not portable.) That's anywhere from $30,000 to $50,000, and if you want it out under consistently dark, clear skies, you gotta buy the land for it, too! :P

Die-hard astrophotography is probably about as expensive as fixing up old muscle cars or yacht racing in the end.
