I started serious DSLR shooting in July 2010, using an XTi belonging to my wife. I bought myself a pre-owned XTi later that summer, and then a pre-owned 40D in October 2010. I was blessed with an early Christmas gift of cash, from my parents, which paid for much or most of the cost of my 100mm 2.8L Macro, in November 2010. Without that timely infusion of cash, I probably would have settled for a pre-owned 100mm or 85mm non-L for a project at work, but the 100L's environmental sealing was an asset for that project, and remains useful.

All I kept hearing was the advice to spend more on glass than the camera. I headed that advice and got the 70-200 IS 2.8 mkii along with my 7D, which was an upgrade from my T2i & Sigma 17-70.
After that, I got the 17-40 and then the 6D & 24-105 kit.
Sold all my primes. I'm sure I'll get back to them someday, but for now I need the versatility.
