what do you carry it in?

the 2x teleconverter is nice for climbing footage...

how about a windjammer for your mic?

you can get a cheap macro lens kit for close-up nature shots which are really cool, bugs and wildflowers, etc.

tiffen lenses make some nice filters, soft fx-1 is a personal favorite. lots of people like the black pro-mist 1/2 for a film look. also if you shoot rock, the red filter can dramatize the colors of the rock, especially in these parts, where the red tends to wash out a bit with the GL2....

some ideas....

I would avoid the cheap teleconverters, they tend to make everything too soft... However, if you really want one, I'll sell you mine, cheap. It might really help us help you, if you could describe what you plan todo with your cam. Fim making, docs, music videos, weddings... what?
