A lot of this information was great for a newbie like myself! Was definately worth the time invested in reading the four pages of comments!

Some still life and flower photography in the folio which for me would suggest a rripod may be a useful bit of kit to have if that is part of the work that Nic likes to undertake. Also useful for portraits where the subject is sitting for you as opposed to candid.

I find the 50mm lens a great lens in my bag. Inexpensive, great quality (I have the 1.4 on my Canon) and makes you think much harder about composition than using a standard zoom lens. A good investment in my book.

My favourite accessories however are my Lee graduated and ND filters.

You live and learn and in doing so build up the kit to suit your photography. Good advice from Leftforum.
