A pair of kneepads. I got the green (and flat packing) gardening ones on sale for pocket change.
They have given me some of the best photographs in my collection.

specifically a Marumi SUPER DNG Circular Polarizing Filter. (spend the 40ish and get a good multicoated one)
no reflections in windows or cars or water... its one of the only things you can get that actually lets you take photos that you couldn't otherwise... for example take a pic THROUGH a window instead of seeing your face in it, or take a pic of fish underwater instead of the water ripples.

Cheap prices, big help!

I'm new to this and I've been searching for things myself. So far I've found the Giottos Rocket Blower for dust removal - $8. Opteka Spirit Level that attaches to your flash mount. It's a bubble level for your camera. It's small and only costs about $8. A lens pen $5 - $10 and a microfiber cloth or one of those cloths you get with a screen protector kit. Also a AA battery carrier for your extra batteries when your rechargeable battery goes dead. There's many types on!

A toothpick. This morning wandering through swamps and brush in search of wildlife I noticed my adaptall mount very loose. Took it apart and found a small screw had worked its way 3/4 out. No tools, and a risk of the thing falling apart by the time I got back to my vehicle. Saved by a toothpick I had in my pocket. Was able to tighten the screw enough to keep it all together until I got home.

The O-ME53 viewfinder. Great for nailing focus with MF lens like my 50 f/1.2 or when i'm doing available light gigs. It also adds relief for the nose against the body.

Split focus screen - I am doomed without one.

- M42 adapter
- Reverse ring for macro + bellows + tubes + bellow w tilt
- Radio triggers/receivers + cheap manual flashes + stands + umbrellas, also suitable for macro and flash use.
- Tilt adapter on nex which makes all pentax lenses to tilt for a very little money.

An old Asahi Pentax close-up lens that I bought for my Pentax M-100.
Quite pleased with it.

Remote or K-r AA battery holder, both $4 on ebay. Both invaluable to me.

+1 to this. It really gives my old K100D new life when it comes to using fast manual lenses. (or any manual lens!)
