What has microstock bought you in 2008

Is microstock sales feeding your camera habit? Does for me.

During the year of 2008 the commissions have bought me:

Sigma 10-20 EX DC lens

Canon 50mm MkII f1.8 lens

Canon 24-105mm L IS lens

ETTL camera flash unit

Set of 3 studio lights

A Sekonic light meter

4 gig memory card

A Cokin ND filter set

Infra red shutter release

Set of hiking gear, shoes, camera vest, shorts

March 2009 should see me the new Canon 5D MkII

What have you got out of this

Hello Py

I went with the 24-105 because of the IS. Lots of pros tell me it is the best walk around lens for the 5D - which I hope to buy. I am at the stage where I am only interested in prime lenses because they are the keepers, you tend to upgrade your camera, but you keep the prime lenses.

I'm still debating (with myself) on whether I should use my stock sales money to upgrade my zoom lens to 24-105L IS or 24-70L. Do you like the 24-105L IS lens on your 1.6x crop bodies and do you think it improve your stock sales?

Well, consider yourself VERY fortunate. I just started this microstock habit. So far the only earning I have are from keywording! Lol, and those could barely even buy me a pack of gum! I sure hope sometime really soon, I at least get my first sale!

So far just a softbox... I've got plans for 2009, though :)

Well, so far all I've gotten is a $35 parking ticket when I parked my car in a space meant for boat trailers! haha! I was parking my car to get some shots of historic sailing ships that were sailing into the bay. Got the pic but haven't sold it. :(

I did get a new Canon 40D but haven't made enough$$$ for a payout yet.
