    Up to you! Money to spend is yours, too!

    See what you like to shoot, then justify to yourself with strong reasons, and if you accept them, fine, go ahead and buy the whole store.

    I can't decide or advise what should be your next purchase. Only you can know.

    i think you should get a nikon d3 and the trinity lenses, whatever they are.









    jokes aside, i think you should get a greater sense of what you need, instead of a general sense of having too much money in your pocket that you seem to want to spend, for some reason, headless chicken style.

    No, get wife then no more $$ to spend on a gear. Stock up on your gear first before getting a wife

    just go out and shoot, don't plan to get anything unless very necessary, limit yourself with what you have will make you more creative, work more harder, you will enjoy the fruit of your labour more.

    When you start shooting, eventually you will knows how the list should go. Atleast that for me, but if you can afford can get all at once.

    P.S. Get a wife first (a rich one) ask her buy for you...

    Some treat their photographic gears like a wife. So which wife are you getting now?

    What Ctchlights said make a lot of sense.

    My earlier comment was to illustrate how difficult it is to help someone who has not provided any information whatsoever; a very unfortunate state of affairs in many communications.

    Use what you have. In some schools of thought, a tutor will ask you to just use a 50mm lens, and shoot with that for 6 months. Nothing else. When you have 'graduated', then you may (or may not) be allowed to progress to another prime lens, no zooms, for another 6 months and so on.

    The rationale behind this is so that a person really learn how to 'see', instead of shooting blindly and get blinded by equipment.

    Explore, expand, sweat a bit and learn to see light, shapes and textures. Don't get blinded by equipment equipment equipment alone.
