well, money is somewhat of an object!!! Ive been reading a lot of threads and thinking . If someone gave you a $15,000 gift card good for camera equipment only, what camera and lens and acessories would you get???

Canon 1d mkIII or 5d mkII
all Canon glass:
EF 400mm/2.8L or
50mm 1.8 or 1.4 (1.8 is fine)
580 EX II Speedlite
And Gary Fong LightSphere...Get the collapsible, will fit neat in your bag.
And ...If you have any $$ left over, get yourself a good camera bag.
I like spending other peoples money for what I want! (LOL)

Best camera on the martket today...
Nikon D3s and the Holy Trinity of lenses:
... and you'd have several thousand dollars left over to take a nice vacation with! :D
There is NO other camera out there on the market that can take a cleaner ISO 6400 picture. This camera goes up to ISO 102,400 (thats NO typo!), and has a reputed cleaner picture at ISO 102.400 than the current D700/D3 at 25,600!!
If that is true, this is incredible. For an example, this is an ISO 6400 and ISO 25,600 picture from my D700:
9fps at FX, 11fps at DX. I would wait though... this camera is not going to be available for a while. With the Olympics around the corner, all the photographers are pre-ordering and paying in full to get their hands on this camera. Also I know the Canadian military has ordered 5000 of these cameras, and rumor has it that the US military is ordering 3-4 times more.
They are going to be in short supply for a while... but then again, it is the best, for now.
Little note that should be obvious, though... its not the camera that makes good pictures. I know two people who use Nikon D3 cameras, and after several months of ownership, neither could take a clear picture to save their lives (and I am being kind here too). ;)
