Post your latest gear find.

Me? The local store had a bunch of used Nikon SC-19 flash cords, so I picked up two 10 ft. cords, an AS-10 and and an SC-17. The plan is to string together a macro light setup outdoors with two used Sunpak PZ5000 flashes.

By the way, those Sunpaks are solid units if you need a beater for use on manual.
Built- in slaves, motorized zoom head, down to 1/64 on M. No TTL on digital, but it will fire on A.

I also saw Fuji IS Pro on closeout so I decided to grab one.
The last near-IR stuff I had shot was Ilford SFX 200 on medium format so this should be fun.

Bought a 200mm macro off eBay a while back and it came with a PN-11 attached. Figure the seller thought it was part of the lens

I've been looking for cheap radio triggers for my studio flash, and have been impressed by Blazzeo Hot Shoe flash Trigger+ Receivers. Cheaply built yes, but alot of bang for the buck, and such a low price that I can easily have two sets in my case all the time.

A Tamron 70-300VC. Been looking for either the Nikon or Tamron at the right price for my light D40 kit and finally found it.

With the help of a friend who posts on the Manual Focus Nikon Glass thread I found a very clean copy of this lens for about the cost of a 50 f/1.4G. I asked for photos and they sent them. My friend visited the camera shop today and took a few photos with the lens, which he sent to me and I just examined. I sent them an email perhaps half an hour ago and if all goes well I'll have a 400 f/5.6 AI-s ED-IF in my kit next week. I know that shooting manual focus isn't for everyone, but I have to say, one can have a great deal of fun using these awesome old lenses that can be had for a pittance relative to what the latest and greatest costs. And they're actually made of metal...

I agree though I'm ever mindul of Thom Hogan's line that this is the best lens ever made that spends most of its time in the camera bag... but I paraphrase. This is the actual quote, one of his 26 reviews in six words or less.

14-24mm AF-S: Most exceptional lens I hardly use

The best for landscapes and HDR. Mine gets a good work out on a regular basis.

You're fortunate on every level, price, performance and usability. We can't do better than that!

I got a clean F5 for $100 even at an estate sale. At long last, it was my turn to get lucky.
