But I remember you saying that this was the only good shot you got with this lens.

Looking at everyone's lens list...it seems that most of you have primarily full frame lenses with a sprinkling of 'D' glass. Which raises an interesting question...with all that glass at your disposal, how willing would you be to purchase a full-frame, 7D-caliber Sony body? Would you pay another $300? $400?

For myself, I bought the 7D because the price was unbelievable - though I'd really like to have the Canon 5D full frame sensor. Now that I've used the KM 7D interface with all those controls at my disposal, it's hard to imagine going back to a more menu-driven approach. I'd LOVE for Sony and Nikon to create a high dynamic range 12 or 16 megapixel 35mm sensor in a 7D body. Combined with anti-shake, ultrasonic dust removal, and our legacy glass - it would be a perfect upgrade camera.

Failing that, I may still go to the dark side (Canon) in 12 months. Thoughts?

I'm not sure what I would pay for full frame, but it sounds like a good idea if it were to come true. I agree, after having a 7D, it's tough to give up the external controls, but I also have a 5D and it really isn't that hard to change settings. I don't find the menu-driven approach that bad on the 5D, but I can't speak for the menus for the other manufacturers.

As for going to the dark side, I don't need or want full framebad enough that I would want to give up in-camera stabilization.\

I would definitely love to see a 7D version of the Sony, but not 10 meagpixels in the current sensor. I think the 10 meagpixel was a big mistake and if they were going to go bigger they should have stopped at 8 megapixel. I'm sure the decision was about marketing.... it usually is.

I might one day upgrade, but it wouldn't necessarily be due to sensor size. I have 3 Minolta film bodies, so if something happens to my 5D, the only lens I can't use is the 18-70. If I decide to upgrade, Sony will get the first shot due to my lens collection, but I can always buy a used A2.

My small but capable collection includes:

18-70 kit lens (rarely used)

KM 11-18 f4.5-5.6 ,awesome lens, I use it whenever I can

KM 28-135 f4-4.5, my most used lens - the workhorse

KM 70-210 f4, need I say more about this oldie?

KM 50 2.8 macro, the original version and a great lens. I use it mostly for macro and the occasional portrait. Mine has a few specs of dust in the glass, and while they don't hurt performance they drive me nuts.

Lenses on my wishlist: KM 100-400 or Sigma 170-500, I need a good long lens

100mm macro 2.8 and wouldn't mind a KM 18-200 for a good 'vacation' lens.

Here's my list:

Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 EX DC
KM kit lens 18-70mm AF DT f3.5-5.6 D
Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 EX DG Marco
Tamron 28-300 f3.5-6.3 XR DI LD aspherical (IF) Macro
Simga 30mm f1.4 EX DC
Simga 50mm f2.8 EX DG Macro

Soon within this year i'll have 70-200 f2.8 APO EX DG Macro

If you can get the 50mm f/1.4 it is almost comparable to the 85mm f/1.4 G (I heard). In the 5D or 7D, it becomes 75mm f/1.4 which is awesome.
