p.1 #1 · Santa Kanon fantasy thread


Let us assume Canon USA and B&H are running a special promotion this Christmas/Holidays. A customer recognition gift card in the amount of $14,000 will be given to a few randomly selected folks who have any kind of purchase history with B&H.

The rules:
(1) The gift card is issued by B&H and it can only be used to purchase Canon gear from B&H.
(2) The gift card has no cash surrender value.
(3) The gear items bought must be kept for at least two years by the purchaser.
(4) The maximum number of gear items that may be bought is five, and all have to be ordered at once.
(5) Only the person whose name is on the gift card can make purchases using the gift card.
(6) The gift card expires on midnight Dec.24/2011.

If you were a lucky recepient of the gift card, what gear would you get ?

I'll take one item. The EF 800/5.6L IS. Thank you very much. No really, thank you. Very much.

I'll use the extra $101 to pay for the taxi rides to and from LaGuardia.

This is my list:

1DMkIV
28-300L
400 DO
24L MkII

Then I'd sell the old 400DO and 24L MkI I've got from before.

5D2 (kit with 24-105) - $3000
85f1.2 - $2000
400f4 DO - $6200
35f1.4 - $1300
24f1.4 - $1500

That would work great for me (I have some stuff already so this is filling out my line up nicely)...

How far ? You blew it. 400 f/2.8 IS MkII alone is $11,500.
Besides, you can't have it because it is outta stock.

I haven't totaled up Peter's list but I'd like exactly the same one & if there's any money left I'd get some underwater gear.

Hey Santa Kanon,

The short list:

1D Mk IV and extra battery pack
24mmTS-E
200mm f2 L
580 Series flash

Please tell me this is not a dream.....or at least let me tell my wife that I actually (kind of) won,
you know, the "Pinnochio Effect"...

It's nice to dream.

I consider myself lucky to have a reasonable line up (for an amateur) - 5dII, 17-40L, 35L, 70-200 2.8 II, 100L Macro, 300 F4L, 580EXII, 2x TC III

$14k would be spent on

8-15L Fisheye - $1500 (I miss my 15mm fisheye that I sold a while back)
200 F2L - $5500
17 TS-E L - $2200
85L - $2000
70-300L - $1500 - for travelling light(er)

I'd have a bit of change for a couple of decent filters too
