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.
Just Kidding and want to have FUN talk to you, my friends
Surapon
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.
Thanksssss, Dear Teacher , Mr. ajfotofilmagem.
You are 1000% right = "Thai wives take revenge from her husband cutting off an important part of his body"----That why, All Thai Men, Just watch the Beautiful Girls----No Physical contact involve----Ha, Ha, Ha = For Eyes only.
Wow "  but here in Brazil bikinis are smaller, and their asses are bigger " ----Yes,I will come to visit you very Soon---Just for " Eyes only"
Have a great day, Sir.
Surapon
Dear friend Surapon. If you travel to Brazil, I'll be happy to tell you about the best time of the year, each city has to offer (good and bad), and other things that travel agencies do not report correctly. Overall, Carnival (February) is a peírodo Bustling, and streets crowded with people, but there are stunning cultural events such as the "Parade of Samba Schools" in Rio de Janeiro. But any time of the year there will be pleasant walks in places of great beauty. Remember that in summer the temperature reaches 40 degrees célsius, and in winter drops to at least 15 degrees célsius. If you want, I can start a topic with detailed information, although the Regional Boards section does not include South America

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

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.

Okay, you're right.  You're just nuts.   ;D

Nope. I'm pre-nuts. Totally Nuts will come once I actually literally blow that kind of money on that kind of equipment. :P  ;D

you slowly start buying gear and one day your gear is more expensive than your first car.

…and then one day, you buy a single lens that is more expsnsive than your first car.   ;)

My 5D III cost the same (number of dollars) as my first car. The camera $3500, the new 1964 Pontiac GTO convert. w/ 4 speed, tri-power, posi rear axle, power steering & brakes and lots of small add-on things was around $3475.

Just thinking what the 500 f/4L at about $6200 would have bought back then.
EOS: 7D (2, 1 gripped), 50D gripped, 580EX II + CP-E4
EF: 500 f/4L IS, 100-400 L IS, 70-200 f/4L IS, 28-135 IS, 1.4x TC II, EF-S: 15-85 IS, 10-22
5D3, 17-40 L, 24-105 L, 24mm TS-E II.  S100 p&s

I got a really, really good deal on my first car (a pre-owned Ford Escort), so I crossed that limit when I bought the 17-85mm  IS USM for $ 325 :D

To answer the OP:
5DIII- 2450 (actually paid)
24-70 II- 1550 (actually paid)
70-200 II- 1700 (actually paid)
35mm A- 700 (actually paid)
135mm L- 700 (refurb 20% disc)
17mm TS-E- 1600 (refurb 20% disc)
Gitzo 2541- 550 (actually paid)
Arca Swiss Z1- 300 (actually paid)
600EX-RT x 2- 700 (refurb 20% disc)

Overshoots by $ 250, but whatever.

This was a really good exercise, because I own most of these except the 17mm TS-E and the extra 600mm, which means I did use my money wisely so far. Lots of buying and selling on the way, and lots of lucky deals. But I am at a happy place :)

Also means I have $ 8K of equipment just for hobby. WTF!!!  :o







EOS 5DIII, EOS 5D | Rokinon 14mm f/2.8, TS-E 17mm f/4L, EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, EF 35mm f/1.4L USM, EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, EF 135mm f/2L USM, EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II USM, 1.4x III, 2x III | 600-EX-RT x3 | EOS M + EF-M 22mm f/2

Ain't it scary when you realize exactly HOW MUCH you've spend on your hobby? :P

After I got my 600mm lens, I calculated all of mine. Without the lens it's over $10,000, and with the lens it's almost $23,000!  ??? Throw in the new astrophotography gear...

It's way too easy to spend ridiculous amounts of money on photography.  :o

Yours is justified by the time you spend on it, and the photos you have created.
I have less control over the quality of the end product, but at least I need to spend a lot more time shooting. Which means I need to manage my time better...  :-[

It's not so much about building a kit for any particular kind of photography. More of a fun exercise in building a jack of all trades kit.

This is quite irrelevant unless you tell us what kind of photography you like.

Well thanks. :) I'm pretty critical of my own work. I always feel I could do way better. I could probably count on one hand the number of photos of my own that I think are really good. :P

I have less control over the quality of the end product, but at least I need to spend a lot more time shooting. Which means I need to manage my time better...  :-[

I too need to spend more time. I haven't photographed birds in months (largely because we were in the dead cold of winter until about two and a half weeks ago...now suddenly it's 75° during the day! :P) I guess I should get out there and start photographing nature again. It's galaxy season right now, and I need a bigger/longer scope to image those in any reasonable fashion. Nebula won't be back until the middle of next month, so it's an ideal time to get back out into nature...

With US$10,000 I would get:

1D X
Spare battery
70-200 f/2.8 ii
Couple of 1066X cards
Good flash

I think that would come to around 10,000 if not then I would buy the 17-40 or 16-35 depending on how much I had left, if any.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

$1280 600 RT x2 and ST E3 RT transmitter kit

Terry...I think you've made some good choices here. 

I would suggest you get the 70-200 2.8ii instead of the f4 version.  If you find yourself shooting any kind of indoor sports or events, or outdoor sports or events in the evening, the 2.8 will make a huge difference.   

Here's a link to the tripod I use and like very much.   I'm assuming you need a head too so this is a kit for $570.
