For what gear have you being saving lately?

We all have different priorities in life and sometimes, it takes a while to save for a camera or lens or any accessories.

So, what have you being saving for?

I have being saving for an used Leica M-P typ 240 in silver chrome. Still a long way to go lol

Not much I'm looking to buy but probably keeping an eye on a used summicron 35. I got my M6TTL last year with a zeiss planar so the combo will last me for a while.

1. Sony's 100-400 GM.
2. Wine Country Filter System + Breakthrough Photography's Graduated ND Filters

Just picked up the 2X converter today for use with the 70-200 GM, hoping to try my hand at wildlife with the 100-400.

Missed on the Nikon D7200 body sale during the holiday season, hoping for another price drop. That's on my list, or perhaps a Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary.

A new Sony Alpha APS-C A mount A77M3 with 450+ focal points, reliable tracking, etc etc. I don't think I'll be spending that money.

Mavic Air, been thinking of going to Iceland, Norway, or road trip Canada in the very near future so I'm really itching to get a drone.

Damn, I know you have been wanting one of these 2 cameras for a while now. I have read somewhere that a dog will cost you like 25-50k in it's lifetime. Fortunately, a dog is a lot more fun than a camera.

We've been pretty lucky thus far with her... Got her as a puppy from Toronto animal services for $140, so at least the initial cost was small Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes. For a 60lb, 10 year old dog, she's been very healthy so far. But yeah, this one surgery cost almost 5k...
