I dun think mounting Tele primes on the roof is a good idea if anything like a branch hits the glass. It will be very painful OUCH!!!!
    All the best then, I'm keeping to my Liteace for 3.8 more years

    First keep your Liteace for 3.8 more years, then change into a 3 ton container truck. U can put a mini studio inside with your photo lab, then mount the dry cabinet to the wall, a spare power generator below the van incase you nd power. Your have a mobile studio and photo lab. MUHAHAHAHAHAHA, My imagination lolz.

    Well here it goes:

    Canon 50D + kit lens of 17-85mm = 2,400
    85mm f1.8 prime = Abt 500 plus
    Old canon magic pipe of 80-200 f2.8L = 1,300
    50mm f1.8 but traded in (-100)
    580Ex II + Omni bounce = 730
    10-22mm =1,100 (Gift from the wife though)
    A kata bag = 150
    Dry cabinet = 130
    Misc like lens hood, B + W filter for all the lenses mentioned, camera strap etc = Abt 1,000

    But it has all been worth it I must say..
    Pain is temporary but glory is forever.. Hahahaks

    Very accurate, but not rounding to the nearest cent?

    If you don't mind, approximately, how long have you been purchasing camera gear?

    This statistic only includes the two bodies I have: 40D (sold) and the current 5D MkII (with lenses and accessories of course). I lost count on the previous purchases such as AE-1 Program and A-1 + all those FD mount lenses...
