    So I went and fogged up the glass at a few camera stores today.

    Sadly, I did not win the lotto on Saturday.

    And I did not come home with the EOS 5D MKII. Didn't come home with anything... bah.

    It did make me feel a little happy in the pants though.

    Seriously though, WTF am I supposed to do with 21MP?

    IMHO, HD Video on a DSLR is a load of wank and then I found this, holyfuckingshithouzen.



    My dream kit right now would be :

    EOS 5D Mk II Body
    BG-E6 battery Grip
    Decent Tripod
    Wireless Remote Shutter
    UV / Polarising / Colour Filters
    Sandisk Extreme IV 32GB x 2

    Lenses
    EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
    EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro
    EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye
    EF 85mm f1.2L USM Mark II

    One day...

    Sounds like a good setup!!

    Had a play with a EF 24mm f/1.4L on an EOS 50D not so long ago. Amazing apature speed! Would love to own one.

    My dream body would be 5D or 7D. filters and lenses are limitless

    I was in JB hifi and they had the Canon EOS 1000D twin lens kit for like $859

    If you're at the track, you'll definitely need a zoom lens as the average 18-55mm lens will limit you a lot.

    Twin lens kits generally have an 18-55ish and a 75-300 zoom.

    I would only reccomend a DSLR if you are fairly technically minded, or if you have outgrown the manual mode on your compact

    I would be a fair bit wary around ebay. You don't know what condition lenses and sensors and bodies are in.

    New items, different story.

    I just sold my 400D on ebay, after two non-paying-bidders and about a gazillion questions, I sold it to someone who wanted it as a 2nd body for their kit.
