A friend of mine had a 4x5 and a B&W darkroom. Saw some photos that blew me away!

I'm cheap but I'm not free!

I just wish I could get Rusty to come along on my next vacation -- the pictures would be truly memorable.

Funny thing is I've taken more pictures with my A530 since I got it than I have the D50/D200 combined.. Seems it's always at hand when a photo op presents itself. You surely don't HAVE to have $5k in camera stuff to have some fun.

Koru well, you guys sure sound like you're going to keep the camera market swinging in the future.

as for me... there's just way too much camera gear Out There for me to have any clue what i would want or need, and too many main brands for me to know what is the best for what i'd need. i think the only way i could choose, would be to look at the end results (i.e. photos) and pick the gear that way.

i'll just keep using what i have. it's nice to be able to master the basics before using something that'll likely beam me to Mars.

That's pretty good thinking.

MT Stringer Being familiar with Canon cameras for 30 years, I would stick with Canon.
30D w/battery grip ($1400)
10-22 ultra wide angle (about $800)
17-55 f/2.8 IS - ($1000)
70-200 f/2.8 IS & 1.4x TC ($2000)

That would bust the $5K budget. Depending on your photo preference, you could substitute the ultra wide angle for some macro gear or put a down payment on a long lens. I saw a 400 f/2.8 for sale used for $4900!

richg99 Yea, I'd just like to combine the BEST features of each of my two ultrazooms... Sony H5 and my Canon S3is...I guess even money can't buy that, yet... I must not be thinking big enough for this group...I guess..

regards, Rich
