I was at a job today and the media were there, including print media, one of the photographers came up to me and we started chatting.

He had a couple of cameras hanging about his neck including a brand new Canon 1D mkII 16.7mp camera with a huge 30-70mm F1.8 lens.

I had it in my hands and checking out the buttons, looked through the biggest damned viewfinder I have ever seen, unbelieveable, bright, huge, wide, did I mention HUGE :shock:, clear, sharp, HUGE. :shock:

I reluctently handed it back and he snapped off a stack of shots on continuous mode, damn fast (4 frames per second in a burst of to 32 JPEG or 11 RAW files)

I was a little in awe, especially when he told me he gave away his Canon 1D MkI, I could have fallen over.

Camera, $5800Aus, lens $10K Aus..yes please...:sad:

I still like my DL, I think it is cute....:lol: small, light and MINE.

One reason for paying the price is that most national magazines will not accept photos from cameras using less than 12 Mega pixel sensors for their articles.
