Comments: Sensor and lens are well matched to each other, CCD draws out colour well especially at night, though the camera is at it's limits at full telephoto reach while needing quick focus. Great bridge camera with all manual functions and a manual zooming lens
its funny how you have a 1DsmkII and the G9 is the best thing ever!
I run a 5D (until mk2 comes)
and a 20D or two

Canon EOS 400D (Canon Rebel XTi)
EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 II lens
EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 telephoto
I love my camera!!!
No where near finding the limits of this great camera, now its more about finding the time to relax and take some snaps (other than car stuff)
Dont believe the whole 'dust free' thing its ment to have, after 1 day at the track, theres a fair bit of noticeable specs.
Oh, and don't ever buy the silver body, mine is stained and putrid!
If you ride a single speed and nobody sees you, is it still cool?
Nikon D70s to replace the old-skool F50 I'd had for several years.
Supplied Kit 18-70mm lens
Nikkor 70-240mm f/4-5.6 (I think, its still in Syd)
Another Nikkor lens 35-? (probably the one that kitted with the F50, haven't used in ages)
Sigma 30mm f/1.4
Older pre-TTL flash
A couple of auto-fill flashes
Several random tripods
Looking at a 300mm prime and possibly a D90 next. But will need to save a fair amount because I want the lens that goes below f/4.
Comments: Decent camera. If I were getting into photography properly I'd probably move to a Canon 5D/1D. Meanwhile, the D70s does what it needs to and the lenses take care of 95% of my picture-work (cars, aircraft). The 300mm would be good for perving. But I tell people its to get closer pics to the aircraft.
