"What's in Your Camera Bag?"
I'm an "old" photog from my college days, and decided to get back into photography. Soooo....I picked up a D100. Here's whats in my bag so far:
Nikon D100 (duh!)
Nikon 80-200 f4.5-5.6 (leftover from my N90s)
Nikon 24-85 f3.5-4.5G
Nikon 50 f1.4
I'd appreciate any thoughts/recommendations for additional lenses/equipment. Also, I noted the SB-80 includes a difusion dome, but the SB-50 doesn't. Is a similar attachment available for the SB-50?

You're off to a good start. What sort of subject matter do you like to shoot? A wider lens or a macro lens might be a good next addition, but that really depends on what you'll be shooting.

After I bought my D100, I decided that it would get it's own bag. So i bought a small Tamrac and just put D100 stuff in it...
Zio CF Card reader
2 spare EN-EL3
Apple iPod or Nintendo Gameboy SE
The things listed below are things are what i consider "basic" and are in each separate bag.
Spyderco Police knife
Surefire E1e Executive Elite Flashlight
1 Fisher Space pen
= $50 cash
spare keys- to trunk of car and office
As for your next purchase? 12-24...fun lens!!!
Sorry for the detail, I just looked into my case and made the descriptions!

Nikon D100 w/MB100 Grip
Nikon Extra EN-EL3 Battery
Nikon 50mm 1.8 D
Nikon 60mm Micro 2.8 D
Nikon 85mm 1.8 D
Nikon 70-200 VR G
Sigma 24mm 1.8
With regards to what you may want next:
Nikon 17-35 2.8
Nikon 12-24DX (can only be used in theory on digital bodies)
From looking at your current lenses the 50 1.4 is a keeper for sure. If you are happy with the other 2 keep them. I personally opt for faster lenses, generally in the 1.8 - 2.8 range.
With regards to the flash, you can buy a 3rd party omnibounce from Strobofome. The 50Dx and 80DX are both winners, your shooting needs will dictate your choice.
Give me my D2Hs and 50mm 1.4, then step out of my way.
