Aside from being challenging, and something I’ve always dreamt of doing, engineering tends to make people money. And while people say that money can’t buy happiness… Well – that’s probably true. On the other hand, it can buy camera equipment, bicycles, and car parts. For today, let’s stick with the more relevant (for this blog anyways) camera equipment.
So, if money was no object, here is my photography wish list (just camera bodies and lenses, we’ll leave strobes and accessories for a later date). *Please note that these prices are the brand-new prices per manufacturers’ websites as of today, or are the going-for used prices on eBay.

Nikon D810 ($3,299.95)
Nikon D5200 ($499.95)
