No
No hypotheticals. This is a kit that I started putting together from scratch in about November of last year. Everything was purchased used and involved a lot of horse trading to get to its current state. For example, I bought that 400mm 5.6 and a 2x extender for $600, then sold the extender for $330. All part of the hobby.

I'm a big proponent of buying 1-2 generation old gear, and with lenses, even older. Depreciation has mostly bottomed out. Kind of a rule of thumb: Never buy anything that I can't sell for >= what I paid for it.

This method, right now, pretty much precludes mirrorless gear. We're about on 2nd-gen mirrorless and I'm not interested in 1st-gen anything. There's pretty much no used market in mirrorless at the moment and probably won't be for another 5 years.

Yes
Either a used Canon R with the ring adapter and a used 24-70L f4 or a used Fuji XH-1 with a bunch of f2 primes. Was I meant to leave room for a tripod and a head as well?
