    I dont have anything fancy yet. Been wanting a Canon 30d or a 20d but just dont have the funds for one right now. Im also thinking about getting a sigma 70-500(bigma) lens to put on it. Maybe one of these days. I know some of you have some pretty nice setups, tell us what you got.

    Bought this last December....so far I've been very happy with it. I love the anti-shake (stabilizer) feature, built into the camera body, rather than the lense.

    Holy smokes, that's a nice rig!

    I'm toting around an old (and I mean old) Nikon FM with a Vivitar 85-200 zoom. Positively stone age. In fact, only thing on it that uses a battery is the light meter! It never fails - but it's sure a pain to scan in prints.


    Thank goodness the wife has a digital camera - now I just have to figure out a way to "borrow" it. :)

    Canon digital Rebel XT with the small IS lens that comes with it and an off-brand :)( ) 80-300mm lens. I feel I lose a lot not having the name-brand quality glass, but the time will come where I can afford it. I've got a 2x converter as well to use sometimes.

    For everyday in-the-pocket use, I've got a Canon Powershot S410. AWESOME little camera that's served me well.

    See sig, great setup, I knew I couldn't go wrong after seeing some of the awesome pics SG and PB post. The 100-400L is an awesome lens as far as length and versatility. If I was buying now it would be the 30D

    Man.... that's about the best lens rig I can imagine... throw a 500 or 600mm in there and it'd be PERFECT. I'm really jonesin' for that first lens you listed.
