Future Gear

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to share with you what gear Im saving up for and drooling over.

Definitely want the Nikon SB-900 speedlight, Im needing a flash desperately and that one is a machine!

Also hoping to get a fast telephoto lens for catching sports. Leaning towards the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8. Couple of friends and co-workers have it and love it.

And lastly Im wanting a wide angle lens. After I get these pieces of gear I think I wont need much in the way of lenses for awhile, maybe a middle range lens sometime. But anyway back to the wide angle. Ive played with the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 lens at work and really like it. Its relatively cheap compared to Nikons 10-24 and its f/2.8 all the way through which is awesome!

So ya thats the gear Im thinking of getting. If you got any other suggestions for telephoto, flash, or wide angle then leave me a comment or email me.
