I've really cut down and downsized on what I carry around and consistently use.

Normal (mostly safe) shooting

Bodies: 5d MKii's

Lenses:
Canon ef 17-40 f/4 L
Canon ef 70-200 f/4 L
Canon ef 50 f/1.8
Sigma ex 120-300 f/2.8
Sigma ex 150 f/2.8 macro
1.4x TC & 2.0x TC

Speedlights: by Canon and Sigma
Studio strobes by White-lightning and Speedotron
Meters by: Sekonic

Unsafe shooting (camera or lens very likely to get destroyed by working conditions)

Bodies: Canon 20D/30D/40D/dRebel's (whatever I find cheap on ebay)

Lenses currently
Tamron 28-75 f/2.8
Tamron 19-35 f/3.5
Canon ef 70-300 f/4-5.6 USM
Canon ef 75-300 f/4-5.6 USM
Canon ef 100-300 f/5.6 L
Cycle through a few in the 70-300 range most years.

I have 3 minolta's (film) and a fuji 602z with all the extras, but nowadays I use a panasonic FZ50, and a Panasonic F3 just for its wide angle lens. I have no desire to carry loads of gear, it stifles my picture taking opportunitys. I also see no need to invest in a DSLR, or to shoot RAW. To me photography is a very satisfying hobby, that can occasionally bring in a little cash for a super shot. Enjoy your shooting.

I noted that you delineated camera use as either safe or unsafe shooting conditions. I'm curious for more details and hope you won't mind providing more information ?

Have you had any camera equipment destroyed in the past, due to conditions ? If so could you go into further detail ?

Your photographic life sounds a lot more exciting than mine.

Thanks,

Les

I have quite a few cameras- the list of which can change almost every other week...lol.
However,the only one that "ain't going nowhere" is my trusty old Canon 20D with a Tamron 18-270 VR lens attached...

Own:

Canon 5DMkII
50mm f1.4
24-105 f4 IS L
70-300 f4.5-5.6 DO IS

Zeiss Ikon ZM
Zeiss 50mm f2 Planar
VC 28mm f3.5

Fuji X100

Since I got the Fuji I have hardly used anything else though. The only that stops me from selling all the other gear is the hope that Canon might bring out a new EF 35mm f2 lens sometime soon.

The Fuji is almost my perfect camera.

What can I say, I like toys. I didn't list the 5 studio lights, various backgrounds, gels etc thought that might be a little over the top
