    Probably get both new for less than $800 for the pair.

    Time get caught up, eh?
    Um ... they're inside my house walls in the form of copper repiping to repair the leaking galvanized pipes originally installed in 1947. Also in those walls are the Sony flash and the vertical grip for the a900.

    So, later this year when the finances have been built back up , it will be time to start adding that which was put off .

    Do we ever know where that A900 is. It accompanies me to work almost every day. Never know when a photo op presents itself. And, some times you just need a mental break from behind the desk.

    P.S. Contrary to rumor, I do not sleep with it next to my pillow. But it does have its own special cabinet.

    Question Being Prepared ... what does it take?

    It is taking quite a bit to house all this stuff, these days, no doubt. Thankfully, I have had left over lens bags to put it all in, considering the loss of the 24-105mm f/3.5-4.5, last winter ... and then selling off two of my prized and long time partner 50mms ... that was rough.

    Most of the lenses fit with two camera back packs and the huge #4 & #5 lens cases ... or I can distribute a lot of stuff in the two sling bags, for a lighter tote. Yes, the 200-500 will just fit inside the larger sling, with the A700 mounted on it. The 70-200mm f/2.8 on one side and the 28-75mm f/2.8 and 10-20mm f/4-5.6 on the other. Still, stuffing all the filters, lights, stands, tripods and other items in the truck takes nearly half the bed.

    It's more like a photographic "war wagon" than a pickup. Accumulating gear becomes a management issue, because let's face it ... you want to have the right lens ... right filter and right lighting to GET THE SHOT. Being caught without the "right" item (when it is sitting at home, doing effectively nothing for you) really plays hell with your attitude.

    Can you possibly have ALL the options? Of course not, but having as many as practical requires a careful balance ... proper planning ... and a big trunk.

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
