I will have a Hasselblad xpan for panoramic, a mamiya 64AFD(with digital and film back) for medium format, a carbon fiber ball head quick release tripod. plenty of lenses and filters.

perhaps a canon EOS 1D mark II. Though still not sure.

How much would that Hasselblad Kodak 16mp back cost?

I havent researched the upper end dslr's but I would go for something really nice like that. And then get a veriety of lenses to go with it, 200mm for the road, 300, 400, 600mm, etc for the nature stuff. Probably all L or the upper end lenses to, hehe.

And since I would need something to move all this stuff with, I guess that means a mustang as well. :0)

And a sweet desktop for the photo editing. Be nice to get more ram than what is normal for a hard drive, hehe.

But its not the equipment that makes the photographer, its his skill so these would just be fun toys, that would help you get shots you normally wouldnt be able to get. Like the high powered lenses for nature shots. Although I dont see myself carrying a 600mm lense through forests and water ways. :0)

RAM? I'd say if you're doing normal stuff on your computer (including editing photographs), you'll want at least 256mb of ram... or 512 would be better. Since I do video editing stuff as well, I've got a gig on my editing computer, but I think that's abnormal.... my other machines either have 256 or 512... I think one might have 768 as well... but I'm weird and kinda a computer geek.

Nice... sounds like a good system to me! That's a similar system to one of mine.

My "new" computer that I got last January is P4 2.1ghz, 40gb hd, two 256mb chips of ram *512mb total*, cd-rw, lexmark printer/scanner and 15" monitor, running windows xp. I find it really lags at times opening directories and stuff. And in photoshop, opening a 120mb tiff file takes a good long while, and I seen an image with similar size being opened on a mac and it took much less time. I think the main problem is the windows xp part. But Photoshop CS needs xp or mac, tobad it wouldnt work on linux since linux is more resource friendly I believe.

right now with todays machines, a normal hard drive is between 40gb *low end* to 120gb. So if you had 120gb's of ram, that would be sweet, not to mention expensive.

Whoa, Kara, sweet machine! You'll be glad you got the extra RAM when you're dealing with large files in Photoshop.

The Hasselblad body is about $2500 (no lens), the Kodak back is about $12-16,000. Then you have to buy lenses.
