Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S

Review Date: May 31, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Great lens for its focal length. Just needs to be stopped down a bit to shine perfectly.
Soft corners...but its not as bad as people say.

Nikon D700

Review Date: Apr 1, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,400.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Many little things that really show nikons attention to detail, such as the diopter knob, added accessories. You pay for what you get, especially with this camera.
Price, but you pay for what you get. First nikon camera so I cant really comment as of yet.

Sigma 150mm f2.8 APO Macro DG EX HSM

Review Date: Oct 8, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $460.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Sharper than a tack
AF...but who uses AF with macro work? Sigmas history on the lens coating, very brittle

Canon EOS 40D

Review Date: Sep 13, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,200.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Good if you are just starting out with DSLR's, half beginner modes and half advanced modes on the dial so you can take your time learning.
Starting to feel the crop sensor squeeze, 5D is *only* a couple thousand more :P

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 PRO DX SD

Review Date: Sep 10, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $560.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Fast/Quiet AF, low distortion at 11mm on APS-C sensor, f/2.8
limited zoom range but thats to be expected for its purpose.

I'm fairly new to DSLR's and lenses in general but this lens offers a very wide range with f/2.8 through and through unlike the 12-24 f/4 that tokina offers. VERY useful for nighttime landscapes or even during a sunset.
