 Nikon F2 w/ motor drive A Nikon F2 w/ Md2 Motor drive and Mb1 Battery Pack , This is a very heavy Camera the battery pack uses 10 yes 10 AA batteries to give you a Maximum shooting speed of 4.5 fps Click heremd1.RM. By Toady's Standards of the F5s 8 fps its really not that slow.

My Camera Bag
  My Camera Bag  What's in my Camera Bag unpacked view >
   My Bag 2  What's in My Camera bag < packed View >
 So What's in My Camera bag ? Well First off the bag . A LowePro Photo Trekker AW and what's inside (1) F5 body  with a MF-28 Databack which give me the option of data imprinting on and between frames , Bracketing and a  dozen other options and of course a Clock..  I use the NM-30 Battery Packs + I always carry a spare AA holder with Lithium's for back up ..
Lenses :
Nikkor 16 mm f2.8 Fisheye. Great and Unusual 180 degree view ..
Nikkor 24 mm f2.8 Wide angle A Nice Lens for Landscape work..
Nikkor 28-70 f2.8 AFS zoom - This is my all time Favorite lens in the whole bag Also the sharpest Lens i Own .
Nikkor 50 mm f1.4 - The All around Lens for General Shooting ..
Nikkor 105 mm f2.8 micro - This Lens Will Reproduce a exact 1:1 ratio in size Great for Close up Work Where Detail is a must ..
Nikkor 80-200 f2.8 AFS zoom My 2nd Favorite Lens in the bag , No its not any faster than The 2 Touch 80-200mm But it does have MUCH better glass and is much Sharper With the Extra Ed Glass This Lens has Over the Last Models .
Nikkor 400 mm f2.8 This Lens is a beast and it is Huge. Weighs in at a "light" 15 lbs with The F5 attached it comes in at just over 16 Lbs .Overall Sharpness is Great even with the Tc-14e or the Tc-20e Attached , Combining the Tc-14e & the Tc-20e together Image quality does suffer to a point . This works out to  1360 mm f9.6  the camera will only read this at f5.6 . I Modified the Tc-14e to couple to the Tc-20e ,  you do have to go to the A mode to use this or to full Manual , BTW : the Autofocus does still work quite well in Bright Light , Of course a Tripod is a must as well along with a remote cord like the Mc-20 at this focal length any movement will show up as camera shake ..
Strobes / Flashes are a SB-26 and a SB-28 a SD-8a Power pack , and the SU-4 TTL remote .
Tripods are Bogen ..
Film : Fuji Ms 100/1000 slide,  Velvia 100 slide  and Agfa ultra 50 , Agfa 100, 400 Print,
Kodak P3200-6400 B&W great for low light / night shooting , and Kodak C-41 Process B&W .
