Please remind me never come to an imagery shoot-out with my puney coffee can camera I made in the 8th grade. The weaponery you all can bring to bear, is beyond imagination.

No LBA here - as I am still saving my lunch money for the 12-24 wide angle, I am lusting after.....
Pentax Spotmatic II with a SMC 55mm f1.8 (M42)

Pentax K100D
SMC DA 18-55 f3.5/5.6
SMC DA 16-45 f4 ED
SMC DA 10-17 f3.5/4.5 ED
SMC DA 50-200 f4/5.6
SMC FAJ 75-300 f4.5/5.8

I guess I should update my list, though it doesn't come close to matching many lists posted here. I actually went around and did a fairly complete list this time:

Pentax ZX-M film

Pentax SMC 24mm 2.8
Pentax SMC-M 50mm 1.4
Pentax SMC-M 50mm 1.7
Pentax DA 18-55
Pentax SMC-M 24-50mm f4
Pentax DA*50-135
Pentax DA 50-200mm (my problem lens, almost packed up to get sent in for repair)
Kiron 80-200 f4 Macro (good lens but has oil on aperture blades)
Vivitar Series One 105mm 2.5 Macro
Pentax Takumar (Bayonet) 135mm 2.5
Pentax SMC-A*300 f4

Pentax case that came with the DS kit
small Tamrac case, for camera and one lens
Lowepro Orion 1 fanny pack
Tamrac 603 shoulder bag
Lowepro Slingshot 200

Edited to add: AF-540FGZ Flash - early Christmas present

Miscellaneous other accessories, like the K T6-2X teleconverter that became an extension tube. 6 of the lenses go back to film days and were either bought by myself or my father, as does the small Tamrac case. The fanny pack was given to me by a friend and the Tamrac 603 I purchased for the Panny FZ30. I still want something wider than the kit lens, can't decide whether I want to spend the extra money for the 12-24 or just get the 10-17 and de-fish software.

Finally got fed up with using a backpack as a regular camera bag, from now on the backpack will be used for hiking and other extended outdoor activities. I took the Lowpro Nova 5 out of its semi retirement, (repacked the flash gear into the Amvona bag) and now it holds almost all of my DSLR outfit (only a couple of manual focus lenses absent). It is not ideal for long walks (the micro Trekker 200 is there for that) but for events like weddings you cannot beat a bag that can be carried while still open.

No new equipment here, just a new outlook.

I remember when this thread started a year ago but I didn't have any equipment to list then. I the past year I have acquired:

Fa 50mm f1/4
Fa 77mm
Tamron 18-250
540 Flash
Hitech ND graduated filters w Cokin pro holder
Hoya Pro CP
Camdaptor strap
Kirk L bracket
Velbon Sherpa 740 Tripod
Markins M20 Ballhead
Katzeye on order

A girl can never have too many bags and you never seem to find just the right one. :roll: Currently using a Lowepro Slingshot 200 for the K10 but have on order a Think Tank 40 and a Kata 102. The K100 lives in a Lowepro Nova.

I have a Kodak P880 that lives in another Nova.

A couple of odd Domkes.

The 10-17 fisheye and the 31mm are on my wishlist. :G
