I will now have this to go with my Nikon D40 for deployment. On that note, I have a list of "goodies" that I am about to purchase. These are things that I think will help get the best bang, shooting photojournalist photos in Afghan. I was hoping to get some comments and advice/recommendations etc. on this list before I make the plunge. I was bouncing back and forth between the D3100 and the D7000 but figured it best to spend my $ more wisely on glass rather than the higher end body.

Also, with a new D40 and D3100 in the stable, I will have an extra 18-55mm lens if anyone needs one?

Here's the list:

SanDisk 16GB 60MB/s Extreme Compact Flash Card SDCFX-016G-A61
- I assume this is compatible with the D3100? If so, is it overkill? The price dif between the 30mb and 60mb speed wasn't much.

Nikon 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR - Nikon

Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras - Nikon

Slingshot 102 AW Digital SLR Camera Backpack Case (Black)

Flash Bounce Cap Diffuser - Fits Nikon SB-600 - Generic

Nikon SB-600 Speedlight Flash for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras - Nikon

Tiffen 52mm UV Protection Filter - Tiffen

Western Digital WD Elements 2 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive WDBAAU0020HBK-NESN

I'm not sure if I should order the flash or not, still debating on that purchase.

Thanks in advance for any insight!
