Thanks for the suggestion Ira, I got the 20D, but it's practically identical to the 30d and I got a great deal on a camera with very low actuations...

I have the following equipment on the way:

*20d & Battery Grip (almost identical to 30d with smaller LCD &constant 5fps - not selectable between 3fps & 5fps like the 30d)
*Canon EF-S 18-55
*Canon EF 50mm f/1.8
*Canon EF-L USM 70-200mm f/2.8

I believe the E3 is still not out yet. I did not research for fear that I may be intoxicated. The Nikon D3 with 51 AF points will be out shortly . Next time we all hope Pentax will come out with some firm answer. Remember when we had the 8086, XT, AT, Pentium , Pentium 2 , then MMX , Pentium 3....... I doubt if there is any end. One thing I am sure the AF technology (for Pentax) has a lot of way to go as I have not had one FA*300mm or FA*400mm users happily reporting major success with K10D in BIF pict. Fast BIF or sport are still the most demanding area when it comes to hardware requirement

And always remember that BIF shots were made before the mid 1980s,* and those were all MF.*
But that was with film and the burst rate (or success and keeper rate) was nowhere near what we have now even with the lowly Pentax. I am still using the skill and lens of the 80s too (except the burst rate).
