Been shooting several years, too, and have settled on a Canon 5D Mark II, with a 50D as a backup.
Canon 70-200 f2.8L, Tamron 28-75 f2.8, stock lens, Canon 28-135 4.5-5.6 kit lens, Canon Speed Light 580 EX II, Pocket Wizards, Sekonik light meter, couple tripods, monopod, portable studio lighting set up with backgrounds.
Lots of props left over from days working with stuffed animal business with Classy Wrap.
Best wife/assistant you can imagine.
