I bought it today, the mechanical parts (dongle/cables) will arrived next week. The software on my android works fine.

Interfit mono light kit. Twon XD 300 ws strobes, stands and softboxes that will never see the light of day over my two Softlighters.

Turns out I made a mistake because you cannot get accessories ( grid, barndoors, gels) for the bastrds. At least in XD mounts.

Photoshop Elements 11, Premiere and Win 8 Pro for $98 shipped. Another 3TB internal HDD.

Going to be purchasing a few more items today as I broke the eye piece on my D7000.

My last two purchases this year were 2 SB-900 flashes and a Nikon D4. I think I will be good for a while now. Unless Nikon comes out with a 50mm F/1.2, there is basically nothing more I want... lol.

Careful, Jerry.

I said that when I bought my second 85mm f/1.4 to replace the one I never used and sold but always wanted to have again (wow, say that fast), but that only lasted about 6 months. Before that, I didn't buy anything except sensor cleaning stuff and some batteries for about 8 months.

It never ends, no matter how much we want it to.

Well to be honest, there is that 200mm F/2 that does set off some serious feelings of lust, but at the 5 digit price range, there is no way that I can justify it because the 2-3 times a year I would need and use it, there is one at the local camera/lens rental place with my name on it for $50 per weekend, but it's not on my "must have else I die" list.

I have pretty much the best of what is out there between 20-200mm and for weddings, it is more than enough to cover all my bases.

Maybe we need to separate this thread into "really need" VS "don't need but really lust for".

Three more old Canon FD lenses for my film cameras as well as using the FD's on my new Mirroeless cam, they work great on the mirrorless with only a simple $20. adapter . I bought 3 Canon brand lenses, one zoom and 2 fixed for $60. Try that with any other quality lenses, would cost ten times that amount.
