They are coming out with a EF 10-2000 f/1.0L IS USM DO that weighs 4 pounds too, lol.

On a serious note, I hope the next iteration of the 5d uses the same focus system as the 7d, I keep reading how awesome it is.

I don't. I'd hate not to have my precision focusing screen.

Interesting, Joe! I look forward to seeing updates on the rumored, 60D. I had narrowed my decision down to either buying a 50D body or the 7D body. I was leaning towards the 7D body since supposedly, the 50D does not provide the photog with a timer when on the bulb setting.

Plus, the 7D has the wireless flash setting, which personally, seems to be pretty neat, especially considering all of the night stuff I do.

By timer, do you mean it tells you how long you have been doing the exposure? If so the 50D certainly tells you.

You own a 7D? Since when? I thought you just bought that XSi? And yes, the 50D does certainly provide a timer. 2 friends of mine have 50D's and I'm pretty sure I've seen the timer on the bulb setting when it was used on at least one of them. It'd be nice to own a new body, but Jen got me a battery grip for my XTi and I'd rather invest in glass more than anything.

Exactly, Joey. I wasn't aware of this. A few weeks ago a friend was using a 50D and using the bulb setting. Unfortunately, it didn't seem to tell him how long the exposure was going on the LCD screen. Is the timer located elsewhere, or perhaps it was a setting he had disabled?

Ben, I've still got the XSi. I haven't upgraded yet, but plan to sometime this year, once I get the 24-105L.

I only wish the time would continue in seconds, instead of minutes / seconds.

It's a pain to see unless its set up lower then I normally do. And in a long run its essayer to watch the watch.

Joey, what I figured. I'm used to looking at it on the LCD screen since my XSi doesn't have the top display.

Thanks for the confirmation! You now have me thinking the 50D might be the better camera since the price is slowly decreasing and will continue to decrease if the 60D is released.

Like I've been told and probably you will also be told, invest in the glass. You were talking about L glass, what happened to that idea? Unless you want new features on a body or you want that extra little resolution, I'd get into the glass. Trust me, I was torn between glass and a body and I've finally made that decision to invest in the glass. Now all I need is money to start the investment . Save up for the L glass. I hear the 10-22 (from talking to Joe) is a great lens, which you have. The 55-250 IS (which I have) is a great lens. Keep saving up to go that extra mile into the L glass category. From what everyone says and from the shots I see, even coupled to an XTI (!), L glass is a good path. Good luck Chase, take the advice if you feel like it, if not, I don't care.

Ben,

The 24-105L is definitely my biggest priority. Once I purchase the 24-105L, I'll probably upgrade to a body only. No need to buy another 50D or 7D kit. The goal eventually is to purchase a 100-400L as well.

The XSi is holding up quite well despite the almost 45,000 clicks. That's nothing compared to AB2, though!

I still occasionally shoot with the 300D especially for night work, light in weight, with remote. It's a great camera and over 75K of photos. I like Canon products.

Yea, the rebel series isn't all that bad. It does the job. Everyone says it's not that noisy, I must have a bad version or my processing technique must not be correct because ever since I've had it, I've had noise issues. All in all though, nice camera. Jennifer recently got me the battery grip for it for Christmas and it made a difference with weight balance. It just seemed so small to me (I have big hands) and felt almost like a toy. I'm overall happy with it, like I said above, need the glass now. Need $$$ to get that glass too, haha.

I had a XTi, and got rid of it after about 6 months and bought my 40d. My biggest complaint was that it was so slow (burst mode) and anything above ISO 200 was real questionable quality (grainy), and 800+ was unusable. Other than that, IQ was fine when shooting at 100/200, would have kept it if I just did landscape type photography. Supposedly the XSi and the T1i Rebels are better in most regards for being entry level cameras.

I think that's one of the issues I was, and still might be having reservations about now, is that I'd like to go beyond entry level. Now that I know what I'm doing, haha. But I have to keep the idea of invest in the glass now in the back of my mind. I'll eventually upgrade bodies, as they all should be pretty cheap in a year or so, hell within this year.

I still shoot my XTi and 40d side by side every time. Night work I like my 40d but image quality just isn't an issue during the day. Yea, the XTi's buffer fills up shooting raw files that is a borderline problem I have been able to live with. Now the XT's buffer blows.

It's not just the buffer, the burst speed seemed like 2 FPS or something, where my 40d is like a machine gun. Not so big a deal shooting trains, but shooting sports, birds or racing it is. I like the controls a ton more on the xxd cameras too, the joystick and "wheel" are a lot nicer than the controls on the xxxd line.
