A Listmania! list by R. Owens "Riverdancing barbeque chef" (Junction City, OR)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "If you're starting to get into DSLR photography, here's what you'll need. I own all this stuff, and I can tell you from experience that it's all deserving of the high ratings. If you get this stuff, you'll be taking impressive shots in no time. If you buy it all at once, you're looking at $3600.00. It is WELL worth it!"

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens
4.  Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens by Canon

6.  Hoya 58mm Moose Peterson Warming Circular Polarizer Filter by Hoya
The list author says:
  "The thing about this filter is that not only does it cut down the glare on reflective surfaces, but it has a warming effect, as well. So you're not gonna need that warming filter. This one is for your 18-55mm kit lens, your 70-300mm telephoto lens, and your 100mm macro lens."
