    What's the next piece of gear you're currently drooling over?

    I won't be buying anything anytime soon, because I recently got the mind-blowing (and wallet-destroying) Sony RX-1, but it's always nice to keep dreaming, right?

    On a side note, this is one of the most amazing pieces of gear I have ever owned. Every time I use it, I get re-blown away by the results. It is spectacularly good.

    These are my current wants:

    Mamiya 7 II, medium format analog camera. This would be a new kind of playing field to get into. I've seen the results of what medium format film can do, and it blows away anything digital x100.

    Sony A7R. Kinda like the RX-1, but with interchangeable lenses and a little bit bigger.

    What ever happened to the poster who recorded a bridge being blowing up near his area but it was very anti climatic?
    He also let out a silent fart bout 43secs going into it, said he was just trying to clear out his voice or it was the guy in front of him...can't remember....

    I want a Nikon D800. I have several FX lenses so the cost of the upgrade will only be the camera body.
