Not sure that there's a forum that fits this so I'll post here since I'm a D700 shooter.

I have $1,000.00 in discretionary funds that I've allocated to some more equipment. After this is gone I probably won't be buying anymore equipment for a while.

I have no real specialty on what I shoot. I shoot sports, landscape, architecture, street scenes, candid event shooting, portraits and family stuff.

I have the following:
D700 w/grip and standard batteries.
SB-900
17-35/2.8
24-70/2.8
50 1.8D
70-200/2.8 VR
28-70/3.5-4.5D (beater lens)
ML-3 remote

Manfrotto w/ RRS BH-55
Manfrotto mono with RRS MH-01
RRS L-bracket
RRS Wedding Pro Flash Bracket

I have the bag necessities covered.

So, what am I missing? I'm wanting to shoot macro and am considering a 105 VR. Anything else I should look at before I make my final decision? I've thought about the EN-EL4 w/charger since some of my sports stuff seems to get missed when getting only 5 fps. I tend to overload my buffer sometimes, so maybe some Extreme IV cards are in order? I'd also like to get some studio lighting.

I know that's a lot to digest. I appreciate any thoughts and pros and cons of my wants.
