Gear list, and why I have it

An In-Progress List

Many people will list their gear either in their signatures on forums or in a list.

This post has two purposes for me: One is simply to have the list all together, and the other is to enumerate the reasons why I own these items. In other words, what I use them for. If I have anything on this list that I cannot come up with reasons for, I really shouldn't keep it, should I?


Camera Gear:
Canon 5D II w/ grip and EG-S focusing screen
Canon Rebel XSi w/ grip

Canon 100 F2.8L IS Macro
Canon 50 F1.8 - There is no reason for me to have this lens, but it would sell used for so little that I haven't gotten around to selling it.
