    I think I'm going to stand pat with what I have until I'm ready to buy a refurbished D500. Right now it's $1500, though I do think I'd like the 16-80 lens in the kit, too. However, I've done some deep reading on some features on my ancient D7000 that have given me more functionality than I knew I had.

    I know that so many people have gone full-frame, but what I'm really excited about is the fast, sensitive AF in a reasonably sized package. It's basically the technology of a D5, but in a smaller package and the AF area over the APS-C sensor means the best AF coverage ever for a DLSR.

    I've got the money now, but I'd really like to get back into flying out here in CA where the distances and traffic make general aviation quite useful. Palm Springs, Monterey, Las Vegas and Havasu are all easy flights from here (40 minutes to 3 hours in the sort of GA aircraft I fly) and in the last several years, everyone's gone to iPads for their flight bag. So cash goes there for now.

    I, like Wonder, have the all metal gorilla pod, which I've only used maybe once or twice. It is also usually mistaken for a sex toy (at least by Rob).

    As much as I want to get away from third party lenses, I'm going to give the second generation of Tamron's 24-70 f2.8 a try. I was very close to getting a Canon 24-105 f4, but then I realized that there are plenty of situations where image stabilization won't help you, so there's really no replacement for the wide 2.8 aperture. And, conversely, there are a lot of times when I just don't want to lug around a tripod, so I also want IS. I just with Canon would do a 24-70 2.8 with IS.

    I thought this was kinda cool... You know how you know there's a lot going on in your lens? When the lens flare looks like that.

    This is taken with the Canon 11-24mm.

    YAAAAS! I just snagged a 24mm f1.4L II from craigslist for the same price I just sold my sigma 24mm art to someone for. My quest to eradicate the third party glass is complete! Red rings for days!
