What is your Least Used Piece of Gear?

Okay, one more -

What is your least used piece of gear, or pieces of gear?

Mine: my 430EX and 580EXIII Speedlites.  I love natural light and use my Lastolite reflectors/diffusers or Einsteins most of the time I need to add or modify light.

I could see that - histograms and having more than 36 exposures on a "roll" has certainly spoiled us...

If it doesn't get used enough, I usually sell it on. I've bought and sold the MP-E 65mm + MT24-EX multiple times.

Currently the 40mm 2.8 pancake lens is least used, it was bought as a step into street photography with my DSLR - but now I prefer to use my 35mm 1.4 which is considerably larger.

My Wife does like the 40mm 2.8 - I might hang onto it.

I'm like natural light too. My Speedlites are least used.

17-40L.

I bought it in 2004 (before EF-s) as a normal zoom for my 10D.  I thought I'd love it when I got my 5D, but time had intervened.  To get a wide-angle on the 10D (again, before EF-s) I had purchased a Sigma 15mm fisheye.  Well, the fish is on my 5D perhaps 100 times as much as the 17-40L.  When I need a normal zoom, I use the 24-105 on the 5D and the crop camera (now a 20D) is used primarily with the 70-200.  Once in a great while I'll use the 17-40L.  It's still a great lens with great optics and great handling and AF.  It's just that I like all my other options better.

I would agree.  I am glad I have it and occasionally it has been of use, but mostly it just sits there looking sad.
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

I bought the lens, played with it for about 15 minutes and didn't touch it again until two months later when I sold it.  It's a fine lens - it just didn't fit into my life.
