I do like having the longer reach of a APS-C sensor as well as while I'm away the 70-200 with a 1.4 and 2x TCs should give me good range and still enough quality.

Good choice. Seems a great camera.
Any opinion about the Canon 24-105 mm f4 L IS lens?

the 24-105 F4 L IS is a fantastic lens, particularly on a FF like the 5D. It is a little bit long on the wide end for a walkaround on a crop, unless you don't need to go wide. If you were looking for a walkaround on a crop camera I would look more at the 17-55 2.8 IS or the 15-85 IS.

Nice shots and sounds like a nice play toy for you to enjoy. So... What memory card make and model are you using in it.

Thanks for the info...... I have 2x 8GB extreme IIIs myself that my employer got for me last March and they work very well for me. Thw backups are 133x Transcend cards that Jim C talked me into getting.

Congratulations, Mark on the 7D-

It looks like there was instant bonding between you and the camera, by the posted shots. Well done!

Have a great day.

Thanks Sarah, yes it's a good camera to use.

Kevin, I'm pretty excited about everything. I'm guess you didn't spot these http://forums.steves-digicams.com/me...nt-photos.html or these http://forums.steves-digicams.com/me...ey-bridge.html LOL.
