    Whether it's Amazon or HMV, your favourite high street store or obscure online retailer, what's on your wishlist?

    Let's limit it to a 12 items, max, no particular order, just edit down if your list exceeds a dozen. No minimum (I'm sure we're not all wishing our salaries away). Can be from any one list, post again for another list/store.

    Can just be a list, or annotated.

    You never know, someone might grace you with a gift of one of your items. ;)

    My Amazon list is a bit confused, as the kids piggyback on my account (that Amazon now think belongs to my wife, for some reason...), and it's all in the basket saved for later...

    2. Nerf N-Strike Clip System Dart Pack (36 Darts) (Ditto)
    3. Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 4 (Yeah, that's mine, not out yet)

    I'm about to trawl the web for a m4/3rds to Minolta AF adaptor, (There isn't one for 4/3rds, because the lens won't focus on infinity) because of the AF Rokkor optics I have.

    Also, want to buy some decent wall-mounting bookshelf speakers, to replace my Rogers LS3/5a bookshelf monitors ... bought in the mid 70s! Any advice gratefully received!

    The rest of my list will undoubtedly be taken up by books.
