    So, go on, what's on the list for christmas?

    What do you lot want in the way of gear? Don't deny it, you can see that long, long list of very expensive items infront of your eyes right now. :P What're you all hoping to, through one means or another, acquire this Christmas?

    I've cooked up a fairly modest list, not going for anything too major just yet. I might try for a camera upgrade (Supported by some of my own money) next year when I've had some practice with the '50. But till then, I've got a few things in mind:

    Velbon CX Mini Tripod
    Manfrotto Professional Monopod (Black)
    Lowepro Sideline Shooter (Nice roomy bag)
    Hoya Super HMC PRO-1 Circular Polariser
    FZ50 remote shutter cable
    Lowepro Filter Pocket
    Olympus FL-36 Flashgun

    I might opt for a cheaper Polariser until I get a camera upgrade, so I don't have to bugger around with thread sizes...not sure really. Will the '50 autofocus with a linear?
    Gear List:
    Canon 40D + Sigma 18-50mm + Canon 55-250mm

    I'm thinking the Manfrotto 055XPROB legs with the 322RC2 head.

    No, I haven't been "good", but I have been "nice"!

    Thumbs up Okay, I'm not greedy ...

    I just want that SIGMA 200-500mm f/2.8 in a SONY mount. You guys can take up a collection ...



    Ho Ho Ho


    Put it in ... put it in!

    Can you imagine the cost of a "CP" for this thing? Darn thing would be larger than your camera bag!

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
