Ok Just for a bit of Fun It's your lucky day you won the lottery , So what camera would you buy now, seeing money means nothing anymore.
I will start the ball rolling

Linhof Technika Techno Body
Schneider AB Digitat 24 F 5.6 SES Lens
PhaseOne 1Q 80 Megapixel Digital back

That should blow a few dollars

    Leica M Monochrom
    Leica 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M

    and (only if I won the lottery - while they're in reach now, the upgrade isn't worth it for me)

    D4
    D800e

    and when/if they happen

    D4s
    D4x


    That'd be my walk around system and my working system in a nutshell. Plus accessories.

    It's funny, I'd have had a much longer list back when I was getting started, but knowing now how, what and where I shoot, this'd be it.
    D700, 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII, 24-70mm f/2.8, 14-24mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4G, 200mm f/4 Micro, 105mm f/2.8 VRII Micro, 35mm f/1.8, 2xSB900, 1xSB910, R1C1, RRS Support...

    ... And no time to use them.

    d700

    50 1.4
    85 1.4
    70-200 vr2

    ^^ im the practical dreamer. :)

    i guess id get a film leica, and a bunch of lenses

    since i won the lottery i wouldnt care about processing costs, and i would probably hire a servant to develop it for me

    Dreams are good, however, the best part is when you get to make your dream a reality.
    I have what I wanted. In fact, I could go out and get my 300 2.8, right now but I'm waiting for a good deal to come along.

    D4 & D800E + AF-S f/1.4G primes (24, 35, 50, 85) And some of the longer lenses too, But weight might be a concern.


    Not that I need those as I'm fortunate enough to own a D600 + AF-S 50mm f/1.8G and 105mm f/2.8G VR Micro. (And AF-S 35mm f/1.8G, But I don't like the distortion it seems to have on FX.)
    The AF-S 85mm f/1.8G will be added soon. (And maybe an AF-S 70-300 VR or 70-200 f/4 VR (+Nikon TC14E II)

    Vision Phantom v1610. Up to 1,000,000 frames per second, a mere $100k
  • paulrpaulr Posts: 1,176Member
    It's nice to see even with unlimited budgets members still stay with Nikon, I would not worry about weight, The Man/Woman Servant would do the carrying, and thats only when we cannot get the helicopter near enough to the location. Not seen a Vision Phantom camera before but as to be put on the list!

    -First off, I would buy Msmoto's sherpa.
    -Pair of D4's
    -Most of the FX lens line and the 800mm. Make it two 800's.
    -Buy B&H Photo.
    -Actually spend the time and money and make a real adapter for Mamiya CS lenses to be accetped by a Nikon F mount w/auto aperture!

    300mm f2.8 and 600mm f4. If I did though, I would probably have to hire an assistant to carry these and my big tripod around for me as well!

    There has been only one lottery winner in history who won without ever buying a lottery ticket; happened to a very nice man who owned a small paint store in Gulfport, Florida, about 6 blocks from my sisters house.
    He told my sister a year later that he wishes he had left the thing laying on the sidewalk where he found it.

    Inasmuch as I'm the only person (other than this fellow) who I'm aware of that has never bought a lottery ticket in my entire life........I'm positive that it will never happen again. So I guess I'll just have to keep "struggling along" with my little 300s; (may even learn to take beautiful pictures with it someday)

    "I could go out and get my 300 2.8, right now but I'm waiting for a good deal to come along."

    LOL.....I cannot remember a "good deal" on any of the big pro lenses... More, LOL :))

    Just go get it now so you can enjoy it in the spring months.....

    Oh, I would probably go along with the OP, along with building a studio and hiring a crew to carry the equipment.

    As well as the above, or possibly in place of them, I would buy time. Don't know where the shop is though.

    @Msmoto: Nikon send me an email regarding their refurbished lenses, but they did not have any 300 2.8's. I was very disappointed...time is on my side so I will just keep my eye's and ears out. In fact, if anyone hears a good deal please let me know.

    Cheers...and happy dreaming "P

    And with all this new camera hardware I'm going to be needing more computer storage; and backup.

    At some point I hope to be able to heat my house with my computers. Might get a little loud though, and drafty.

  • PaulohnPaulohn Posts: 33Member
    I would get a D4, a D800, a D7100, and all Nikon gold ring lenses to review them by myself.
    Maybe that sigma 200-500mm f/2.8, well, just because I could.
    Also a Leica to replace my everyday P&S with style.

    I did my dream reality recently.
    Went from SONY DCS-T200 to D800 with 16-35 f4, 50 F1,4, 70-200 F2,8 plus several accessories all at once.
    I was dreaming for a DSLR for ever waiting for the "right one" (and to gather the money of course) and I believe I got it right.
    Now hope that the dream will last for ever too.

    Im surprised that someone with self proclaimed poor vision would pick a manual focus camera like the M-monochrom. :]
