What equipment do you use?

This is a simple question, it might start flame wars over stuff, but it has to be answered. :)

I simply use a Sony Alpha 900 DSLR for my main camera.
I also have my Minolta Maxxum 9000 with MD-90 for backup and to use the CG-1000 that uses the 2800AF and 4000AF flashes.
I use four lenses, a Minolta 50mm f1.7, Minolta 35-70mm f4, Minolta 70-210mm f4.5-5.6 and a Vivitar Series 1 19-35mm f3.5-4.5.
My computer is a HP tx2000 tablet, Windows 7 Ultimate x64, 4GBs of ram 120 GB HDD.
Printers I use, HP 4600 series color laser printer, HP 1200 PSC all-in-one, a Epson Stylus Photo R200.

This is my first post here, and I hope you'll enjoy my ramblings and I will have fun here! :wink:

My lenses:
35mm f2
60mm macro f2
85mm f1.4
18-135mm f3.5-5.6
11-16mm f2.8

Flash is my trusty SB-800, that's about it! :)

I just upgraded to a Epson Photo Stylus R1900, and man those photo's I took look great. :D

Also, got the Sony HVL-F58AM, no more portable flash troubles for me again. Just need to get a second and third flash for the Wireless Flash usage and also, High Speed Synch is available using the old Minolta lenses that don't have the distance system (ADI) with my new flash. 8) No expensive lens buying from me!

I got a Vivitar 100mm f3.5 Macro, the "Plastic Fantastic" lens to do portrait work and a little macro.

Pentax has been my camera of choice.

I now carry Pentax K-x with-DA 35mm f/2.4, FA-50mm f/1.4 and Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 + Metz 50 AF-1 Flash in my bag. Also, Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Macro for long range, but that doesn't see much light (get it? cause...the aperture is smaller, less light travels through...).

I used to use just the kit Nikon D3000 that came with the 18mm - 55mm kit lens and the 50-200mm kit lens. (f3.5-f4.5 I think).

Then I got a f1.8 35mm prime lens and SB-600 Speedlite.

Finally upgraded to a Nikon D7000, primarily using the SB-600 and the 35mm lens for most everthing.

At this past ALA I added another camera, a Polaroid Auto 100 using Fuji Film FP 100-C. It was a hit, I am going to take it with me to Fanime 2012 this year!

Canon 40D
17-85mm f/4-5.6
60mm macro f/2.8
and a 70-200mm which is not so helpful in these situations
Flash is 580EX II

Want more ideas for lenses as I'm limited on them... but thanks for all the posts :D I'm getting quite a bit of inspiration.
