For lights it is hard to beat the Magicshine sold by
It is rated for 900 rumens, not sure about actual output. But, it does an outstanding job of lighting up the road, and is not terribly expensive. A good value.
On the rear, the Planet Bike SuperFlash is not expensive. It does seem to work.
I don't have any frame of reference for rear panniers. I use vintage Cannondale panniers on the front of my Xtracycle.
I started riding year round in June '08. Studded snow tires are worth the money and hassle if you get snow and ice.
