Best Gear - YOUR Opinion

Hello! We'd like to give a little recognition to some of the gear that photo.net members truly love. This will help our readers--and more importantly--our fellow members who are in the process of deciding on what gear to purchase. If you answer the questions in the widget below (and it shouldn't take more than a minute of your time), you'll be helping your fellow photographers out and you'll also be entered to win two great prizes. 

We look forward to announcing the choices and giving awards to the best of the best -- chosen completely by you! 

NOTE: Please be specific.  Example, you may love a 50mm f/1.4, but we need to know the brand and any other details (G, D, EF, etc.).  Furthermore, as a good suggestion from a devoted reader (that I took for granted), make sure it is equipment that you've used and respect rather than have on your wish list and haven't yet used.  Thank you!!

Thank you!
