Canon 5D Mark III
I am simply blown away. ISO perfomance one to two stops better than the 5d2 and blazing fast autofocus. Enough said. But not really, because there are many more things that I like about it! Not only does it focus faster than the 5D2 it also has over 6x as many autofocus points than the 5D2. It is worlds and above better, and worth every penny to consistently capture moments that I would not otherwise be able to.
Canon 5D Mark II
The quality of the images are incredible and I love! love! my 5D2. Simple as that. It is getting old at this point, but the images are still amazing and highly competitive despite its age.
Canon 70mm-200mm 2.8L II
This lens will amaze you. It is incredibly sharp at 2.8, especially for a zoom. Additionally, the contrast, and accurate saturation that it captures leaves very little to do in post-production. I shoot with it 95% of the time. And it almost feels like I am cheating because it is so versatile!
Canon 100mm Macro USM
I liken this to the sharpness of the 70-200. Even though this is not an L lens, it is incredible. I can fill the frame with almost any small object, and in addition to that it makes a great portrait lens. The most use I get out of it is doing ring shots though. It doesn't get better than a dedicated macro lens!
Canon 50mm 1.8
This is literally the sharpest, and highest quality lens for the money. It is better than any kit lens and comes at a fraction of the cost. It is more of a back-up lens for me but it is no slouch!
Canon 300mm 2.8L IS II
It is a winning package: lightning fast autofocus, unparalleled sharpness, and gorgeous bokeh. It brings almost any distant subject right up close and personal. I highly recommend this for shooting sports, wildlife, or anything far away!
Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art
I am happy to say that I am now a proud owner of this lens. Wow. I almost cannot handle how sharp it is wide open at 1.4. It is truly incredible. That, mixed with the strong contrast and beautiful color reproduction, is a winning package for me. I know I have that Canon 50mm 1.8 listed just a few lines up, but this Siggy blows it away(and should).
Induro CT314 Carbon Fiber Tripod/ BHL1 Ball Head
This is the newest member of my photographic family and it is fantastic. When it isn't in use, sometimes I just catch myself staring at the carbon fiber. I know that sounds weird, but naked carbon fiber is beautiful! Seriously though, It is top of the line in the materials department with the hinges being made of magnesium and it is solid as a rock. And it is INCREDIBLY light. How these two things happen is beyond me.
