Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 G2 lens

Recommended by Rick Friedman

This is the lens I use the most! It is the perfect mid-range zoom lens. It focuses fast and is incredibly sharp. This lens is always on one of my cameras. $1099; available via B&H.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III kit

Recommended by Bryan Esler | Read review

Olympus’ latest micro four-thirds camera is perfect for any type of photographer. With its compact size, you can experience up to 6 fps with the mechanical shutter, or 10 fps using Silent Sequential Low settings. Fully weathersealed, this camera (despite its light weight) is a rock. In my tests, it held up to dirt and dust without a problem. With pro-level features like High Res Shot and Pro Capture, this is a great second body for professionals, or a great primary body for photography enthusiasts. The kit comes with the 14-150mm f/4-5.6 lens. $1499; available via B&H.

Westcott FJ400 2-light location kit

Recommended by Scott Wyden Kivowitz

Super portable lights that pack a punch, can accept numerous light modifiers and are camera brand agnostic. $1999.90; available via B&H.
